Thend – Small Business Blog

Tell us about you!

I’m Carly, 31, boy mum x 2 and engaged to the love of my life. We purchased our first home last year and we’re loving every minute of living in Skye. 

Tell us about your business?

Thend is an online clothing store for women. The idea came to me whilst I was picking up my eldest from kindergarten. The kinder had the most awkward session times and I thought to myself how hard it must be to find work around these hours. As most people know, parenting is a full time job but I was ready to work – for me. I love unique clothing and that’s why I thought I’ll give this a try. Working from home, my own hours in between school and daycare pick up/drop offs etc. Offering beautiful pieces for competitive prices. 

What’s your number 1 business tip for someone in business? 

Don’t be scared to push or to ask. If you don’t, the answer will always be no. 

What do you do for me time? 

I don’t get a lot of me time but when I do it’s movies, whether it be at home, cinemas or drive ins. Movies are my thing and horror is my genre of choice. 

How do you juggle being a mum and running your own business? 

Nighttime. Golden hour once the kids are in bed is when I do most of my packing, social media and sourcing. I juggle every aspect of my business every chance I get in between chasing after my boys.

What’s your number 1 styling tip/must have item?

Cannot go past a nice cardigan. 
I feel everyone should own one versatile pair of denim jeans! 

Where can we shop all your amazing items?

All my items can be sourced online at
