I’m Connie. And this is my blog.
I’m a 29 year old mummy to two boys. Kurt (7) and Kyle (2), I’m a wife to my partner of almost 12 years, Mannie. Together we live on the Central Coast NSW Australia. I grew up in a small country town on the North Coast as a child which I hold many special memories of life on the farm and with the cows. The country side will always hold a special piece of my heart, just like the ocean now does. I am the owner of The Timba Trend and enjoy living my life in a getting back to basics lifestyle and believe in healing your soul through meditation and nature. Follow my adventures exploring our country in our renovated vintage gypsy caravan with my tribe.
We lead a very busy lifestyle with a thriving home business, a seven year old in year 1 who attends swimming lessons and football, a toddler, Kyle who is always at peace when he is with nature and animals. Every second weekend see’s our family of four turn into a family of six with my husbands eldest children staying with us. So it gets crazy, it gets messy, but it also gets fun and amazing memories are made. We are a family who crave adventures outdoors and soaking in all of natures beauty by going hiking, to the beach, on drives through the country side, and enjoying our own backyard and what the Central Coast has to offer.
My life has had its ups and downs. Some things harder than others and most things just how I had imagined for my life. I’m where I want to be at and my children are growing up how I want them to. Out in the fresh air, living a happy care free life that children should live. I’m absolutely smitten and in love with my life partner. He’s my rock, the one who still gives me butterflies, the one who still makes me laugh and fall in love more by the day.
I juggle the mum/wife/work life with working from home, running an online shop The Timba Trend. I am the Owner/Creative behind the biz and I encourage anyone to take the leap. It has been my most rewarding career path yet. But it has its struggles with the children home by my side while I work and try to get errands, housework and kids sporting done. I’ve had my fair share of meltdowns in the workshop.
I aim to share insights with those who follow my working journey over on @thetimbatrend and for those who follow my lifestyle journey on @theconniediaries. You will also find product reviews from time to time that I have trialed in my home as well as my favourite thermomix recipes.
I love to share my lifestyle with you, because I believe in it. It is a lifestyle change I made in 2015, to become mindful, present, and enjoy the simple things in life. If I can encourage just one of you to try it, for me thats a win. My aim is to inspire the over thinking, anxious, stressed out souls, to stop for 10 minutes and have time for themselves. I promise it will change your life, just as it has mine. Because, I use to be that person too.
So sit back, grab a cuppa and enjoy the read.
Love & Gratitude,
