The day I fell in love with Iran. Whilst living in Paris, I created Not Just Another Milla as a place of shared inspirations and experiences – tales of exquisite éclairs, romance in the city of lights and advice on finding the perfect scone without hopping across the channel. Fast forward a few years and, having bid France a very firm au revoir, I’m now back in London in hot pursuit of an academic career and more fruitful experiences.

In recent times my blog has naturally evolved with my personality and interests; now, it is a space to document my societal and cultural observations, travel adventures and life as a mature student interjected with the odd cinnamon bun and espresso martini.

In those rare moments away from the library, I can be found indulging in one of my many passions: yoga, ogling ceramics, reading and daydreaming about yet another trip.
