Inked


Alongside a substantial amount of life changes I've been making this summer, yesterday I got my very first (and most likely last) tattoo! Getting this has been a thought for the past couple of years, as it holds much meaning to me, but I never thought I would actually do it until a few weeks ago. The decision just seemed to make sense when it reached my mind and I am simply head-over-heels in love with it! I never thought that I would be one to get a tattoo (never had anything against them, just weren't on the bucket list), but I couldn't be happier that I went through with it. The process was not as bad as I would've expected and the result is just lovely. Now I have to invest in some good tattoo concealer for when the acting gigs start coming.

Do you have any tattoo stories to share? Or perhaps you've recently made some form of life-changing decision? Let me know in the comments!

Stay sweet ♡

They Say It's Your Birthday



As some of you may or may not know, this past Wednesday was my 20th birthday! I was super excited to celebrate with my best friend Kitty, but more importantly, I was excited to wear this dress! I've been drooling over To Tommy from Zooey, a Tommy Hilfiger collection designed by Zooey Deschanel, since last semester and couldn't wait to get my hands on one of the dresses. To my delight, one of my favourites was available on sale a couple of months ago and fit like a dream--but I told myself I had to wait to wear it on my birthday. The dress was even named "Sarah B." so I thought it just might be destiny. Eventually I ended up buying two more from the collection and I couldn't be happier!

Dress aside, my birthday was a lot of fun--one of the best ones I've had in a while. This entire summer has been truly memorable for me as I make my transition from teenager to young adult and I look forward to my next year here on earth.

As you can see, I still haven't quite mastered the art of posing for blog posts (I have no idea what to do with my face and body sometimes!!) so I am hoping to really put a lot into my blog starting now--especially since I now have my own domain, thepetitepixie.com, yay! If you have any tips for me or something I should work on please let me know in the comments! I will really appreciate it.

Stay sweet ♡

Fußball

**Note: I am assuming since the World Cup final was this past Sunday, majority of you have seen and/or know the final score/winner/etc., but just in case you haven't, here's your little warning that this post includes spoilers!


I am by no means anywhere near a sports fanatic or even athletically gifted, but football, particularly the World Cup, I seem to always have an interest in. Most likely because of my upbringing, surrounded by a football-loving family, (or maybe it's just the players...*day dreams*), but whatever the case, football seems to be really the only sport I even-kind-of understand, and the World Cup just seems so magical to me, the way the entire world can come together to play the game. It makes me think that this is how we should settle our differences--a few penalty kicks, not war! But I digress...

As you can clearly see, I am a Germany girl, 100% due to being raised that way as well as my largely German background. I felt like going all out this past Sunday in support of my team, all the way down to the German flag coloured ribbons and makeup and...we won! I won't owe it entirely to my ensemble, but it made the experience extra rewarding knowing that I could spend the rest of my day (and go to class) all dressed up in honour of our team's win. Let me just say how truly sad it is to see how poorly people react to their team losing. It is just a game after all!


My Pikachu that I've had since my 5th birthday (he will be 15 this year!) matched perfectly for the occasion so I figured he'd better make a guest appearance, wouldn't you agree? And of course, it wouldn't be me unless I found some way to throw pink into the mix--thanks to my dad for finding this perfect T-shirt for me! Now all I need is to get my hands on a Manuel Neuer jersey... ♡

Birthday Wishlist


Hello, everyone! Okay, so my birthday isn't technically until August 6th (along with my one year blogiversary on the 9th of the same month!), but having a summer birthday has always made me associate summer break with my birthday, so I get excited very early on. Not to mention I really have nothing to do at the moment, so I am always online window-shopping. These are some pieces that I've fallen in love with in the past couple of months, and in an ideal world, would want to open up on my birthday! Of course, I would never expect to actually get any of these, as I've sort of already gotten a very big early birthday gift from my parents... which I will share when the time comes!! But for now, a girl can dream!!!

  1. ModCloth Best Birthday Ever Dress - Size 8 (UK) - $86.99
  2. American Apparel Rayon Button Up Long Skirt in 1/4 Polka Dots on Navy - Size S - $84.00
  3. Swedish Hasbeen Braided Sky High in Silver - Size 38 - $234.99
  4. ASOS Skater Skirt in Scuba With Sheer Panel - Size S - $60.97
  5. Predictions Women's Saddle Oxford - Size 7.5 - $29.99

These are just a few of the many drool-worthy items I will see throughout my summer break I am sure, but for the moment these are my favourites!! Maybe there will be a part two to this wishlist before the big day!

What's on your wishlist this summer? Do any of you also have a summer birthday? Let me know in the comments!!

Stay sweet ♡

Solstice


It's hard to believe that it's not even summer yet (21 June, everyone, mark your calendars!), considering how hot it's been lately. And yet, nothing can really stop me from wearing layers and socks, just because sometimes they really complete an outfit. That's how I felt today wearing probably my favourite outfit of my "summer" break thus far. I seem to get a lot of wear out of this dress, but I just love it so much I can't help but find new ways to wear it. The collar-peaking-out look has to be one of my favourites of all time. Perhaps that's due to my obsession with the 1960s English schoolgirl aesthetic (aka every outfit in An Education!). Whatever it is, it really urges me to want more collared blouses in my wardrobe, whether to wear under dresses like this or under a jumper when I'm back in the city and it's a bit more brisk outside. Anyway, I'm babbling...


I will be going to Kauai for a weekend getaway this Saturday, so hopefully I will have some photos to share from my time! How are you planning on spending the first official day of summer?

Stay sweet ♡

Primavera



Last night, my parents and I celebrated an early Father's Day by having dinner at a local restaurant called Prima. It is relatively new so I hadn't ever been. I was a bit hesitant after not knowing a single ingredient on the menu, but after tasting I was delightfully surprised! I'm a pretty cheap date, so these fancy restaurants aren't usually my thing, but it's always nice to have an excuse to get all dolled up--not that any other guests jumped at that opportunity. It is a bit too hot and humid here to make the effort to actually look nice when leaving the house, but I try my best. 



I will now take the time to gush about my most recent ~big purchase--my Kate Spade bag!!! I've been a huge fan of Kate Spade for I-don't-even-know-how-long and have always said I would buy one of her handbags for myself and the day has finally come! When I heard about the outlet opening up on the island, I couldn't help but take a peek...and inside happened to be the most me handbag imaginable (aside from my Betsey Johnson phone bag, which I was wearing that day and every worker in the store raved about!). The colour, the scalloped edges, the size (●♡∀♡) everything about this bag was just perfect--especially the price at 40% off the discount price and additional 20% off celebrating the grand opening! You'll be seeing a lot more of this bag, but not too much, as I want to keep it for only special occasions... (primarily when I'm back in the city, it just wouldn't be safe to walk around with a designer handbag every day!)

Stay sweet & Happy Father's Day! ♡
