Celebrating the Curious Pixie’s 3rd Birthday with an Aspiga Giveaway!

It’s my BIRTHDAY! Well sort of…the Curious Pixie is 3 today! I can’t quite believe I’ve been regaling my travel, cultural and foodie tales to you for that long. Seriously, it only feels like yesterday when I made the decision to start this online travel diary blog for my girls.

My blogging anniversary!

Three years later the diary has morphed into a platform from where I share ideas to help everyone escape their everyday. We all need to break free from our chores, ties and responsibilities at times. Hopefully this is where you come for inspiration, be it an hour in a gallery, indulging in your favourite cuisine or jet setting to another land.

Starting a travel blog

Some of the amazing opportunities which have also come my way have at times blown me away. I’m so grateful for each and every one. This past year has seen some amazing family press trips, foodie adventures, luxury hotel collaborations and cultural jaunts to name a few.

I’m even more grateful that you come here and hang out with me. Not only that but you show me the most incredible support via your lovely comments, shares and likes across my social media platforms.

So to celebrate and to say a big thank you to all my lovely followers, I’ve teamed up with my favourite luxury ethical beachwear brand Aspiga for a fabulous giveaway!

Ikat Navy/White Harem Trousers | Navy T-shirt

You’ll have seen me wearing their clothing on a few of my far flung adventures. Like these super comfy 100% cotton harem trousers and t-shirt in Kerala.

Kaftans in the Maldives, which I practically lived in everyday. Although some of their collections work just as well off the beach as they do on it. Any excuse to use my round wicker turquoise handbag, when I’m out and about in London.

The travel-inspired brand, focuses on handmade and beaded products such as clutches, jewellery, belts and sandals, as well as a wide selection of beach and swimwear.

Ethical clothing company

Celebrating the Curious Pixie's 3rd Birthday with an Aspiga Giveaway!

Aspiga’s ethical approach to fashion is the backbone for the business founded ten years ago by director, Lucy Macnamara. It began from a holiday to Kenya where she fell in love with the craftsmanship of the talented local artisans. Bringing the quality handmade goods like the beautiful hand beaded sandals to an international customer base became a passion.

Fair trade fashion

The brand works to help fight poverty through fair trade. Sourcing their products through small suppliers who offer their employees fair wages and provide good working conditions to their employees. This in turn stimulates their local economies providing much needed jobs to the men and women in these communities.

They are also giving back to the community in Kenya, by collaborating with a wonderful Children’s Orphanage called Restart Africa. Who rescue and care for homeless children in Gilgi (Kenya).

So you can dress well as well as do good! Easy to see now why they’re my goto holiday wear brand?!
