It’s that crazy time of year, when we shop just a little more than usual & even with the best of intentions it’s easy to head out to the big malls & grab everything you need in one place.
Shop Small Australia created an initiative that supports local business & encourages us to shop small & shop local. They enlisted the help of Australian celebrities (including some of my favourite bloggers!) in making a map to walk us through their favourite small & local shops.
I am pretty lucky that I have so many stores, cafes & services local to me, so I decided to join in the fun & create my own map! (Firstly, apologies for my map, it’s not the prettiest! I’m quite obviously no graphic artist!! But I hope you get the idea!)

So there’s my home turf! Doubleview & Scarborough on the West coast of Western Australia in Perth. I hope to give you a sneak peek into some of these great locals over the next few weeks. And if you can’t wait for me to check them out, I’ve linked them so you can find them on the web easily!
In the meantime, you can check out some of my favourite maps here:
