Just because



Today is saturday.
Saturday means no work, no study.
This saturday means sunshine and going to some thriftshops.
Oh, and making some polaroids of my very LAST package of film.
I need more film.
MORE.



Oh, and of course i will be searching the heaven that's called the Internet for beauty. As i always do.
Sometimes i think you people must be getting bored of me showing only beautiful pictures, and sometimes some of my own polaroids or things i bought.
I rarely do any really 'interesting' posts, where i tell my opinions about things and stuff.

Do you miss that on this blog?
Are there any things you want to ask me?
Are there things you are missing on this blog?
Do you like the long posts, or would you rather see some shorter posts?
NOW is the chance to tell me! :)


Actually, i'd really appreciate some input from my lovely readers...

Hmmm...


(.)

^ In my opinion this is certainly true. But does this also works the same with a blog?

There is this Scandinavian blogger i almost forgot about: Underbaraclara. I followed her blog for a while and than accidentally lost the link, so it's been a while since i last visited her blog.
Luckily it's still the same beautiful and inspiring place...








And her beautiful home...



In stead of only 'using' Flickr to find the most amazing polaroids, i decided to take a look at Polanoid.
I found some gorgeous ones...

These are shot by 'rabbitandsparrow' (unfortunately i can't find how to link this particular photographer from Polanoid). Luckily i also found her Flickr.




Beautiful tree shot, by Polanoid's 'threestories'.



Also, it is really time for some fall/winter things.
It's already quite cold here in Holland, so i have to change the way i dress.
I layer a lot lately. It's not only pretty, but the most comfortable too.

Lover the Label, for instance, is perfect for layering. Or not layering. It's perfect in both ways.








^ I know it's a long way till summer, but i just couldn't resist posting this beautiful bikini.



And Topsop...oh my dear Topshop. WHEN are you planning to come to Holland?
You just have to, it's unfair if you don't.



And this one is just love....so pretty!



Ok, i am going thrifting now and just being outside because the sun shines...

I am very curious about your opinions on the things i asked you in the beginning of this post!

i for one am not bored of what you do...i think as a blogger you need to post what you love, rather than pander to what you think you should post about.

that first image = love

Lisa said...

mila your blog is perfect b/c it comes from your heart.

your passion comes through the screen and that my girl is all you need.

post what you love.

if you feel like long ones, one day post all you want or if you're having a bad day post one picture.

either way we love you.

you're inspiring and honestly post the most beautiful pictures.

<3 those wedding pictures :)

i feel you on topshop! I can't even order offline.

have a lovely day.

Mooi! Vooral de eerste foto, polaroids,Lover foto's en de Topshop body!
Ik vind je blog eigenlijk fantastisch zoals ie nu is. Ik vind je blog juist mooi en intelligent tegelijk.;) Ik vind de lange posts erg leuk, maar de kortere posts ook. Ik zou opzich wel meer eigen foto's willen zien(outfits bijvoorbeeld en je polaroids vind ik ook altijd erg leuk om te zien!).
Dus, keep up the good work!<3

Mon Petit Lapin said...

Hey! Where are you getting your polaroid film from? I am running out too! I think your blog has all the readers it does because of your unique style therefore to change anything would be to change what your readers love so keep doing the goodness your doing, have a good wknd!

Valentine said...

There's something about your blog that I just cant put my finger on-- I just know it makes me feel very happy as if Im going through someone's scrapbook.. I like that feeling. :-)

Mila said...

Thank you all so so much! <3

Underbaraclara: the first two songs on the playlist are from Yann Tiersen, i believe they are both from the movie Amelie.

:))

Valentine said...

I was just about to ask again where the songs are from.. so soothing.. ;-)

Thanks very much for the comment! I would love to exchange links. ;-)

Susanna-Cole said...

My dear Mila, please don't change a thing, because I love the way you blog just the way you do! Part of the reason I was so drawn to your blog in the first place was not only because of it's beauty but because you had your own style and way of blogging, and that's part of what makes your blog so special! :)

And these pictures are gorgeous and inspiring as always, I love the warmness of your blog, it's like it's own kind of sunshine! :)

xoxo,
S-C

P.S. You're most welcome for the award, you deserve it truly, and thanks for your kind words deaar! <3

...love Maegan said...

it's all so dreamy, I just love it.

Mary Lee said...

I like your long posts! Gives me more to read.. haha. I actually like your blog the way it is. The lovely pictures that you post are inspiring and I love to read your cute little comments underneath every picture (although I am quite curious about Mila - the person ;)).

Anyway, I think you should continue doing what you do, because many people seem to enjoy it. I am one of them. Your blog is addictive and I always visit it whenever I feel like getting in a good mood.

About the comment on my latest post, it's crazy!! So random. I've contacted him, so I'll keep you posted about what will happen. Weird things happen to me.

Hope you get the best weekend ever!
Much love

Hila said...

I think it's your blog and you should do what you like - and I for one love what you do :) I don't think you need to change a thing, unless you want to.

Mireia* said...

I'll be following your blog as well, you post the most beautiful pictures!

michiko said...

Well you're a bit like me then! I posts only beautiful things, I don't write opinions, it's very visual and just showing what i found or what like :) I never get bored of looking at beautiful things, so your blog will never be boring to me. I don't mind if the blog is long or short.
Thanks for introducing me to Polarnoid also. Lovely.

HANNAH-ZOË said...

I love love love! your posts, to me they are a constant source of inspiration. Pleas don't change

Jesse Mendez said...

Hi how are you?

I was looking through your blog and found it interesting! I have an art blog here in San Diego and would like to invite you to visit and enjoy and comment.

I hope you are up to it? Thank you and I hope to see you soon =)

Missa said...

Oh Mila, I agree with everyone else, your blog is perfect just the way it is :) and I think there definitely IS an intelligence that comes through in your posts.

There is intelligence in the way you combine beauty in the form of words and images, your appreciation for such vast types of beauty, and how you recognise beauty that's not always obvious and display it in ways that illuminate it.

One of the reasons I love your posts is because they aren't just "pretty", they have a depth and even sometimes a darkness to them that makes them special. So keep it up girl! :)

Hope you had great luck thrifting!!!

Windy Days said...

your blog is always full of beautiful things, and you should post what you like because it's yours! :)
did you find any thing nice when you went thrifting? hope you did!
love, a. xoxo

Alice said...

i love it !

<3

Jess. said...

I wouldn't love your blog so much if there weren't its constant supply of enchanting photos. They always put a smile on my face, dear! And I was only unsatisfied with being at work because I wanted to be running around on my saturday. Luckily, it rained all day so I was happy to be indoors. I'm also on my last pack of polaroid film, so unnerving!

Have a good Sunday, love.
Jess.
