Hello there, welcome! My name is Marie Zhang, and I'm 25 years old this year. I'm the founder of Exuvalia, a lifestyle blog filled with posts on my personal life, travel, fashion and everything in between. I started this blog to pen down my memories and progress throughout the years, so that I can look back on everything in the near future. My old posts have been made private, but the newer ones will be left public.
Being a perfectionist, I put a lot of focus on self-improvement and self-growth, with the assistance of my decent knowledge in Psychology and Philosophy. You might be interested to know that my clothes are color-coordinated and my personal belongings are arranged according to symmetry. If it's not obvious already, yes, I do have OCD. Also, I would consider myself a bit of a minimalist, as I hate clutter (with a passion) and tend to search through my bedroom for something to throw out/get rid of on a daily basis.
I'm passionate in learning new languages, and can currently speak English, Mandarin, Japanese and a little bit of Korean. Despite not being able to speak fluent Cantonese, I can understand the basics (as my parents/boyfriend speak the language). I hope to learn more languages in the near future, and use my language skills while travelling around the world. As for my travel adventures, I've been to Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Macau and China, but hope to visit Japan and Korea one day!
