Keeping it real in our City


Leah Worthington‎ - Southern Suburbs

Hi! I’m your new Southern Suburbs blogger, Leah. I’ve recently moved to Coolbellup with my boyfriend and Dachshund x Maltese puppy Cleo (sounds like a weird combo but she is just the cutest!). I’m sort of a local though, having lived in Leeming for the past 5 years (which is basically next door!)

I’m a country girl at heart though having moved around a lot when I was young; I’ve lived in the Goldfields, the Wheatbelt and the Avon Valley, but I’ve spent most of my life in Busselton in the South West.

I moved to London for a while after graduating from Uni, and worked for Gig Junkie as a music journalist, which basically meant all my nights out in London were free! When I moved back to Perth to get a “real job”, I started writing for Faster Louder, to help work on my writing skills, but mainly for the free concert tickets!

I work in digital marketing for a home builder, and love writing as a hobby. I’m a bit of a gym junkie (or at least I pretend to be) and love competing in fun runs and obstacle courses, this year I have the ROC Race, HBF Run For a Reason, City to Surf, Colour Run and Western Mud Rush marked in my calendar!

I love going to live gigs and events, and on weekends you’ll often find me in cafes embarrassing my boyfriend by taking terrible photos of our food #brunchclub or taking way too many selfies with Cleo.

I love discovering new things to do in Perth and trying new places, which is why I’m so excited to be writing for Perth Happenings, where I can do just that!
