City: Perth

Mum of two gorgeous little boys, who loves to explore, finding fun things to do with my little family. I seek out new places to eat and drink and enjoy finding hidden gems that no one else knows about yet. I love to cook and experiement with new recipes on a trial and error basis! I love writing for Weekend Notes as it gives me an extra motivation to get out and try new things (and tell people about these experiences).
