What is Midlands Trade?

Midlands Trade is a blog about business made in Brazil and Europe founded in 2014. The idea is to present what people in Brazil would like to know about Europe businesses and vice versa .

To make this link between Europe and Brazil, we focus on news about tourism & hospitality, starts ups, retail, food & drinks, e-commerce and all subjects related to Birmingham and West Midlands.

Who am I?

simoneI’m a Brazilian journalist living in Birmingham, UK, since 2011 and I’m the founder of Midlands Trade.

I like to think I’m powered by music and I spend a lot of time writing and reading as well. I’m fascinated about independent businesses and all things related to Birmingham and West Midlands.

It’s on Midlands Trade that I publish most of my stuff, but I also write for other online publications such as Weekend Notes, Sounds and Colours, EazyCity.

Eating sushi, collecting kokeshi dolls and reviewing pubs and restaurants are also my hobbies. And I have an adorable cat called Dougal Doo, which is my currently inspiration for everything I do nowadays. ;o)

I have been working as Portuguese and English teacher, translator and interpreter, watch technician ( yes, I am multi-task) along the years too but journalism is my real deal.


What we do?

I like talking about products, places, services, food, drinks and people I admire. Those who I’d like my readers to know about them! For this reason, I’m always preparing some special content out & about at Midlands Trade. And I’m ready to be surprised!
