Autumn's Advancing


Oh my goodness, hello! It certainly feels like it's been a while, doesn't it? Perhaps that's because of how incredibly busy I've been and how time seems to fly on by. As you probably already know I am (finally) back in San Francisco and have begun my third year of university! It's so hard to believe I will have a college degree by the end of the year. I don't feel old enough yet! And yet here I am already beginning to search for an apartment. It's funny how much faster university seems compared to high school. The first few weeks certainly haven't been easy, getting back into the swing of things and such, but nothing worth doing is ever easy, I suppose. I have a very optimistic view for the future!



My first day back in the city was just as I pictured it would be! I was reunited with Chris after spending another summer apart so we had all sorts of fun things planned--including a double dinner date at Benihana in Japan Town with my big brother Josh and his girlfriend Salia. She actually handmade my amazing purse from a vintage copy of Les Misérables for my birthday! It's the perfect size for my phone and I am positively smitten with it. If you're as in love with the idea as I am you should check out her newly opened shop where she will be selling more like this for a great deal! All each one of a kind of course, and made with lots of love ;-) 


One of the best parts about being home is being able to wear my perfect To Tommy From Zooey dress and tights! I have been waiting ages to put this outfit together and it was worth the wait now that I have the perfect handbag to match! Since most of my clothes were here in storage, I am very happy to be reunited with those again... so many more styling opportunities! Even if I am currently out of space to hang/store a large amount of them(−_−;)


Although I have my work cut out for me this semester, I am definitely excited and ready to give it my all! After such a productive summer I feel I am more ready than ever to take it on. Hopefully I will be able to share some of my work with you all at some point, who knows! I hope you are all having a lovely start to your autumn (my favourite season!) and remember--all of your hard work will pay off sometime very soon!

Stay sweet ♡

You've Got A Friend



Hello! It's been a little while, has it not? Thankfully I am finally settled back in San Francisco and have very limited unpacking remaining! Hurray! I had the distinct pleasure of spending the entirety of my last day in Hawaii with my best friend Kitty! We are unsure of when the next time we will see each other may be (crossing our fingers for winter holiday!) so we decided to have the best day possible! She and I have been talking about filming The Best Friend Tag (below) for ages and finally sat down and were able to do that, as well as get matching rose gold friendship bands!


Words cannot describe how much this girl means to me and she never fails to make me laugh like an idiot (clearly shown in the video). She makes me happier than most people on earth and I think the bright colours I wore really showcased my feelings toward her.



I couldn't have asked for a more perfect end to my very busy and productive summer, and I cannot wait until we are reunited once again!



I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of the new school year! I've found myself already so busy in my first week--but Halloween is just around the corner!

Stay sweet ♡

P.S. The wonderful Sammi aka The Soubrette Brunette kindly asked me for an interview for the month of September and it is now up on her blog! Take a peak!

Could it Be Another Change?



Despite my apparent lack of a smile in the photo above, I am absolutely in love with my new hairstyle! These past few months have been increasingly more difficult without having a fringe (such a tragedy, I know) so I am glad to have my go-to signature blunt bangs again, as well as a new colour I am positively smitten with! I do quite think my eyes pop more with darker hair colours. And a new 'do is the perfect last step to the all new and improved me!


And now for the part where I geek about my accessories! Is this the most perfect satchel you've ever seen? It was one of the many wonderful birthday gifts I received earlier this month (thanks Kitty! ^_^) and it's just the right size to hold all of my must-haves for a long day out. I don't think I even have to mention the colours, which match most of my wardrobe fabulously--particularly these shoes! I don't care that we are entering autumn, I will always be wearing mint hues!


I am so excited because this time next week I will be back home!!!! I have some new things planned for the blog and I can't wait to start city life once more! I have a feeling it is going to be a good year, wouldn't you agree?

Stay sweet ♡
Sarah

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... ♡
