Wow. That’s how I am opening. I never thought I’d get someone other than my selfish and picky self to write on So Many Lovely Things.
The day, however, has come. Welcome Carol Aquino *all clap*.
Our paths crossed randomly a few years ago but just recently we realised we may have more in common than previously accounted for. Add to that the fact Carol, originally from Rio but a good old London soul like myself, has enviable credentials and boom.
In all honesty, I am over the moon (surprised and a bit incredulous, tbh) she agreed to become a collaborator on So Many Lovely Things. I cannot say enough how ecstatic I am to get a bit of her shimmering sea of knowledge, professionalism and fun over the blog.
Ms. Aquino brings extensive fashion, style and communications expertise, plus a ridiculous gift for seeing the future (she works in trend forecasting) to the little blog, to make up for some of my shortcomings, mainly in knowledge, but also in, erm…
lazy assness time to create more posts.
- MA in Fashion Journalism (London College of Fashion)
- Extensive experience on international trend forecasting (she worked for Stylus and trendwatching.com)
- A background in economics, mainly providing poignant research for politics.
- An undying love of glitter and dancing (hello! <3)
Some of you may have already seen her on my Instagram or at an event, so will not be surprised to see her face (and wise words) ’round here too.
Carol will be covering fashion, trends, style, lifestyle and to be honest, anything she wants, gracing us with her fabulous flair and that eye in the future!
Catch her on Instagram (@carolaquino), Twitter (@querouaquino) and of course, here real soon.
