Spend 5: Pixie Curtis & Roxy Jacenko

Pixie Curtis – she has the be one of the most famous little faces on Instagram, the most well-travelled 4 year old – and lets not forget about that wardrobe full of designer clothes (heck, how can this twenty-something woman be envious of a 4 year old!?).

TWAIN were curious and excited to spend 5 with this little trend setter and her mother – the woman behind her international success, Roxy Jacenko.

Why bows? How did it all start? Ever since Pixie was a baby, she has worn bows in her hair. People would often asked me where I got them from. One day the idea hit me, I wasn’t going to tell them where to buy them. We’d make our own and sell them, and Pixie’s Bows was born. Who would have thought a simple idea for hair bows could grow to where it is today?! However, it proves if you follow your instinct, create a quality product and build a ‘brand’ around it, anything is possible.

Biggest ‘pinch me’ moment… We’ve had lots of ‘pinch me’ moments over the last year or so! However, recently Pixie received a thank you letter from The Danish Royal Family, which is certainly a highlight

Pixie’s favourite bow… It’s almost impossible to pick one, but for summer Pixie is loving the Cotton Candy Polka Dot bow

On travelling in style…Good quality basics that you can mix and match along with some statement dresses. When actually in transit, comfort is the priority.

Jet lag cure…Try and work to the local time as soon as you step off the plane. And as an addition to the above, travel in comfort and try and get as much rest as you can in the air!

On work life balance…Working in PR doesn’t really lend itself to much of a work life balance in the typical sense. It’s all about priorities though. For me, working 7 days a week is necessary but at the end of the day I know I’m doing the best thing for my family. Spending time with Pixie and Hunter is my indulgence and downtime, something I look forward to at the end of every day.

What’s next in the world of Pixie…I tend to not overthink it and just take opportunities as they come. Pixie’s Bows and Pixie’s Instagram have evolved organically – you can’t force these things as it loses authenticity. In terms of Pixies Bows though, we are currently looking at further international expansion and we’re always looking at new bow colours and styles. Stay tuned!
