The Pixie

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by.

I’m Sima, the founder and editor of the Curious Pixie a lifestyle and travel blog full of escapist ideas. Born and bred in Manchester, I now live in London with Mr S and my two girls. I’m 40, a mum of two and work in telly. Believe me life is busy. Having said that it hasn’t deterred my travel junkie, foodie lusting and culture seeking ways.

I started my blog in 2016 as an online diary for the little ladies in my life. It was a place where they could go and relive all the wonderful memories we’ve shared. Over the last year it has slowly turned into a space where I not only share my mummy adventures but also my non-mummy gallivants too.

the Curious Pixie is here to inspire you. I write about the things to do with and without your mini-me’s. Packed with tip, reviews and recommendations from the world of travel, food and culture in London and around the globe.

Curiosity made this little pixie and I hope my blog of adventures helps ignite your inner seeker of joy too.
