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. 

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!

A Weekend In Santa Barbara at The Wayfarer

Last weekend I got to venture to Santa Barbara for the first time. Anyone that's talked about it has said so many great things, and it was the perfect way to start the year. I made The Wayfarer my home and I loved its proximity to all the beautiful streets, restaurants, and not to mention the ocean was just a few streets over. I wanted to share some highlights of my weekend and some things I captured through photo + video.

If you ever get a chance to visit SB, be sure to check out The Wayfarer and they'll take great care of you :) Not to mention, they recommended one of the best restaurants called The Lark (pictured above) and each plate was a work of art. I already can't wait to go back to dine there and explore more of the beautiful town. 

Getaway to L'Auberge de Sedona

The past two days I've been in Sedona, AZ (for the first time!) visiting a beautiful boutique inn, L'Auberge de Sedona. They have several locations, but this one was stunning for the first one. It's nestled right beneath the red rocks, scenic hiking routes, and other attractions. There was a lot of history to Sedona I had no idea about– including the fact that Walt Disney took much of his inspiration from the scenery. It made sense because I instantly felt like I was transported into another world. 

Not only did I feel such magic and serenity here, but the hotel itself was pure bliss and a perfect escape to wind down and rest. The staff was so warm and instantly felt like a little family. I had a little cottage right in front of the creek with a perfect view. I also loved the details like the fireplace with fresh wood placed at my door each day, the outdoor shower, and beautiful interiors. 

My stay wasn't nearly long enough and I can't wait to visit the other locations in the future. See some of my stay below and be sure to check it out if you're ever in Sedona– you won't regret it!

Warmest welcomes on a cold foggy day. 

My little cottage tucked away

A few of the beauty essentials including my Instyler curler. 

Made a visit to the l'apothecary spa to make a custom body scrub blend. 

Couldn't get enough of these views

Enjoyed the chef's menu at Cress with a 3 course meal. It was an art experience for my mouth– each one was another world of goodness. Above are the beef carpaccio (which I kept calling carpaccio island because of the colorful vegetables on top) and the venison. 

Loved taking these walks each morning :)

A perfect night to end each day. 

Thanks L'Auberge! xo
