Books to Style Your Mind

We are half way through the year with summer travels around every corner and I can’t wait to dig in on my summer reading list. Nothing is more relaxing than taking some time on the beach or poolside to expand my imagination, get lost in a new place and learn a different perspective on life.

With mid-year goals, reading has been a big part of my life and creative processes to support my clients needs. In order to improve myself and stay inspired, I love to read books that elevate me to be a better version of myself. Style, self-improvement, stories of empowerment and manifestation to elevate my soul. You are what you eat and I believe you are what you read so style your mind.

Keep scrolling to check out my summer 2018 reading list.
