21c Hotel Museum // Nashville

Last weekend I got to spend a few days in Nashville again. I've missed it so much and every time I'm back, it seems to have grown more and more. I was so happy to be hosted by 21c Hotel Museum during my stay. They're a boutique hotel that's half known as a contemporary art museum throughout the entire building. It was beautiful to walk through the halls with the interactive art, along with a dark theater room with instrumental music playing and a projector showcasing various images to escape.

If you're ever visiting Nashville, this is a must stay. It's close to everything and there's nothing short of inspiration in each corner of the hotel.

Autumn Daze

autumn found me in a daze
jewel toned; escaped the craze
a morning in lonely ecstasy
roaming through a yellow fantasy

Old Town

A few days ago I ventured up north to old town Pasadena and the quaint streets were such a refreshing scene. Unlike downtown, where I live, the streets were so peaceful to explore. All the shop were in old brick buildings, along with grassy trails, and old churches. I always feel some part of myself so connected to places like that. It's challenging because if I were to ever strictly live in a place like that, I'm not sure if the pace would drive me crazy. But, I like that I can grasp some moments of it and keep it with me afterwards.

Take a look below as I've also included some new pieces I've been loving as of late with Akira and Charles & Keith:

A Weekend In London

A Weekend In London // Mel Denisse

Hello from LA! I'm currently recovering from jet lag from my 2 week trip to Istanbul and London. The last time I traveled overseas, I lived on the east coast, so switching to a 10 hour difference hit me a little harder this time around :-P

This past weekend in London was a dream. I've been waiting to go for years, and finally made it happen. I can say that it might've been one of my favorite trips I've ever taken. I had no agenda other than to just get out of my routine and be inspired all over again. Almost every sight left me in awe. There were so many highlights but I'll let the photos speak for them self:

I can't wait to be back since I didn't even get close to exploring all there was to see, but this was a great start. Also thanks to Airbnb for the beautiful stay in Notting Hill :). Hope you enjoyed!
