Colby is a mom of two little ones living in Southern California with her hubby of almost ten years. Originally from the East Coast, her Jersey girl attitude means she tells it like it is. Colby enjoys writing, dessert and social media but sucks at Pinterest. Her love for fashion and design makes her a (sometimes) stylist and often, handywoman. She believes in the power of a good bra, great concealer, and a power nap. Colby's family has been her biggest adventure and greatest appreciation in life. While nothing comes close to the joy her babies bring her, she also loves a good mom's night out. She hopes to share her experiences with a fly by the seat of your pants (slash) research every little detail approach.
