ABOUT


You get one chance at life, so why not make it freaking amazing?
Do what makes you happy and forget the rest.

This blog started out in June 2011 as a DIY blog/outfits blog known to many as "Doing It The Gracie Way". I was 16, young and silly. I'd still like to think I'm young and silly, but with a side dish of maturity. I had no clear idea on what this was going to be and to be honest I'm still not sure I even know now. I just wanted to produce some sort of content which I was proud of and happy to share. And I did. I dressed up in front of a brick wall pulling silly poses. It was fun. 

But as I grew up more, I began to do it less and less. I'm not exactly sure why. I guess a part of me was just plain lazy, but at the same time I honestly just feel like I'm so much more busier than when I was a 16 year-old. 

So now the blog has shifted to me giving the occasional updates on what's been happening in my life. For period of time I had "blogger's block", putting content up because I felt like I should but not because it was worthy. Luckily, I have since moved away from that.

But I want to travel and I want to learn and absorb and explore what beauty the world has to offer. 
So the blog now sits as a time capsule of sorts. It's my documentation of my life as I grow and as I change. 

Life has so much to offer and I'm ready to take on whatever it chucks at me. 

And oh a bit about me before I finish up. I'm an architecture student, born and raised in the beautiful city of Sydney. Chinese heritage, avid amateur photographer, painter, sketcher, thinker, tea drinker and occasional karaoke superstar (not a good one but). 

Thanks for stopping by, greatly appreciated.
