Not Just Another Milla is a place of shared inspirations and experiences – a space to document my explorations and societal observations, interjected with my academic interests.

I recently relocated to the magnificent city of Saint Petersburg. I’m embracing all the city’s cultural and historical delights, wandering across magical bridges, studying Russian,  and impatiently awaiting snowfall.

    Oh darling, you really are a woman after my own heart and the similarities are too good to be true! Next time you’re in London (or I’m in Paris, sigh…) we simply must meet for tea and macarons!

      Thank you so much Helena – such a nice comment! I’ve actually been following your blog for a while – you did a review of ‘Decorate’ a while back, and I have since bought and fallen in love with the book. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Milla,

    Just noticed your comment on my blog (Cocomaya post). I find your blog interesting as I love afternoon tea too next time we could meet up.
