Hi everyone, thank you for visiting Co Curated! My name is Colleen (pronounced with a long o) O’Connor, and I started this blog in 2017 when I quit my job, and uprooted from my hometown of Toledo, Ohio to settle in Buffalo, NY with the love of my life, our dachshund, Agnes and cat, Cleonie.

This blog is a way for me to experience living in a new city for the first time, while sharing bits of my lifestyle, food, clothing, and travel experiences with an on-line community. All the while, trying to cope with not having a traditional 9to5 and working to make my dreams of becoming a (paid, haha) writer come true!

We’re in for quite an adventure, and I hope you will stick with me as I navigate this new life!
