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 41 and juggling parenthood whilst working 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 things to do with and without your mini-me’s. Packed with tips, 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.
