What’re your plans for the December holidays? I know they’re still a little while away, but I’ve decided to make this my last 5 Things post for the year as things are already starting to get hectic around here.

See, Eat, Do: 5 Things to do in Perth This Week

Are you a Perth local, did you move here with your family, or are you winging it here on your own? I’d love to know more about my readers! I’m a born and bred Perthite, but both of my parents are English and moved here with their families when they were young. I’m so glad they all decided to settle in WA and that I get to call Perth home.

But here are my favourites – a doggone good time with Perth pugs, an evening enjoying French food in the Swan Valley, the kick off of my favourite open air cinemas, and enough handmade Christmas gift ideas to take care of everyone on your list.

Just like life itself, my desk and my mind can get a little messy at times. None of this stops me from banging out work to a deadline or remembering important things, but I do have to work at staying organised so that I have more time to focus on being creative and kicking butt at all the things I chose to do.
