The Pixie

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by…

I’m Sima, the founder and editor of the Curious Pixie a luxury 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 a 40 something year old 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 launched 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. It very quickly turned into a space where I not only shared my mummy adventures but also my non-mummy gallivants too.

Obsessed with travelling the world the Curious Pixie inspires parents to pursue their wildest wanderlust dreams with kids in tow and also rather importantly without. Becoming a mum only encouraged me to be inventive with family travel and remember when ME time was due, whether it’s a couple of hours at a restaurant (I’m a huge foodie), a day trip or weekend jaunt way.

the Curious Pixie was born from the idea to escape the everyday. From traversing glaciers in Patagonia to canoeing down the River Thames, driving a classic Trabi through the streets of Berlin to luxurious UK staycations. It’s a place where followers are inspired through my adventures from the world of travel, food and culture in London and around the globe.

Head to my work with me page for more.
