Polaroid Obsession by stylevancity featuring Polaroid beauty products

I don't know about you, but I really like polaroid cameras for some reason. Maybe its cause of their instant artsy gratification, small-size and wide array of colours. At times I think it serves more as an accessory rather than the simple point and shoot. 

Personally, I own Fujifilm's Instax Mini 7s, a small compact polaroid that produces credit card sized souvenir photos. I bought mine on sale for around $70 CAD at London Drugs compared to the usual $100 at Urban Outfitters. While the camera itself wasn't a huge investment, the film costs nearly $1-2 a piece which seems like an overwhelming recurring expense. As a result, I don't use my polaroid as much as I'd like to and I feel pressured to get the perfect shot the first time round.

Nevertheless, I still enjoy taking it to parties, get-togethers or to my local park just to have substantial memories of some of life's precious moments.

  1. I've just recently got a Fujifilm Instax Mini 7S and I LOVE it! Although I do agree that film is crazy expensive and when you take selfies, you have no idea how they will turn out :P So you shake the polaroid like crazy and hope for the best :P I save mine for the most special occasions (:

  5. My best friend has a polaroid, she loves it. It captures moments better than any iphone and they look so much better in photo books. That rustic, vintage feel is so in. Im gonna grab myself one at some point hopefully :) They're so fun.

    Lots of love, Em xxx
