Keeping it real in our City

The Perth Happenings Team

Pieta Sharpe

Hi I'm Pieta. I'm the boss lady here at Perth Happenings. I love getting grass roots with people - who, what, when, where, why and how. We have been growing Perth Happenings to support the small local businesses and events that perhaps can't afford large scale exposure and this is my passion.

We work with only locally based businesses so we can keep their families with income, conversely if you work with Perth Happenings you are keeping my children in soccer - it is a win win!

I have a team of amazing bloggers and look forward to introducing them to you - Thanks for supporting us.


Bree Finlay

I’m Bree, I grew up with two brothers (middle child syndrome) in remote communities in the Kimberley and moved to Perth when I started high school. I like to think I’m still a country girl at heart, bit out there yet introverted, I fondly refer to myself as a bit of a doofus. I’m definitely not afraid of having a laugh at my own expense.

I currently work in Marketing and Communications but hope to write full time one day.

A few of my favourite things include red wine, burgers, food in general really, yoga, books, triple j, my bed/sleeping and travelling. I love sussing out new things and writing, so this new adventure is pretty freaken exciting for me!!



Katie Daniels

My name is Katie. I have lived most of my life in Perth, and always in the Northern Suburbs. I have two primary school aged children, a husband and an energetic dog (kelpie x dingo – can you get any more Aussie than that??).

My passion is travel, and I love to take my family on new adventures all over the world! I share some of these photos on my Instagram account @thedanielsfamilytravels . As I spend so much of my time exploring new places overseas, and within Australia, it is with some authority that I can say that Perth is really one of the best cities in the world! I believe there is no better place for us to live and raise our beautiful girls.

We are so lucky to live where we do! I look forward to sharing with you some of the fun places that we visit in our local area in the Northern Suburbs of Perth.



Kaye Waterhouse

Hello crew I'm Kaye. By day (and actually by night too) I run a contemporary yoga studio in Midland, Vital Beat Yoga, where we merge sassy flows with even sassier beats.

In my spare time Im either tending my veggies, or seeking out child (and dog!) friendly places to play, and rad places to eat - as a Nutritionist Im also a massive foodie. I love our relaxed hills lifestyle and the tight knit community of people that call it home. Let me share its magic with you!


Lauren Higham

I’m Lauren, and I’ve lived in Perth for the whole 23 years of my life!

By day, I’m the Marketing Coordinator at the wonderful Perth Happenings and by night, you’ll either find me paying my local Zambrero a visit, craving the 'Cheesecake' flavoured ice cream from Gusto Gelato or watching crappy reality shows on TV. My favourite Friday night consists of watching footy on the couch with some brie cheese and crackers, and on my weekends, I thoroughly enjoy sleep ins and yoga. I'm a big fan of living as green and as naturally as possible and I'm also a bit of a neat freak.

I love getting out and about in this great little city we call home; Hawkers Markets, Farmers Markets, The Hopman Cup, a Wildcats game, the movies, a music event – you name it, the list goes on. You’ll often catch me around the Vic Park area, but I’ll go anywhere for a good time.


Leah Worthington‎

Hi! 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 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!



Neil Drouet

Hi everyone, I’m Neil. By day I work as a Physiotherapist, and to keep myself busy I’m also doing a PhD, studying the involvement of nerves in pain. I’m extremely passionate about my work and research, and the difference it can make to our ability to help people stay pain-free.

I’m also obsessed with staying fit and healthy, and I love getting out hiking, biking and kayaking as well as staying indoors to hit the gym or a yoga class.

I’ve travelled a lot (mainly super cold places, Iceland is my fave) but call Perth home. I love getting out and exploring new parts of the city and surrounds, especially new cafes or small bars.

I like the idea of capturing the feeling of travel by being a “tourist in your own town”, there’s so much going on here that we don’t even realise exists!
