Flashback Fashion Friday: Weekly OOTD Roundup:

Happy Birth Week, KJB!

I got my nails done after work and prior to the birthday excursion to Polaris!

I turned 25, and took a truly heinous photo for my new ID, so naturally I'm now counting down to 29. My birthday was great besides that, read more here. So great in fact, I was confused why there were so many men in Pandora when I was trying to buy myself a birthday present... Can you guess why?

Yep, you guessed it-- Valentine's Day! HA!

Wednesday night, I had a webinar for my VST job with my sorority, besides that- nothing too eventful happened. Besides having a subpar meal at Max & Erma's. No one was more upset than me- I LOVE Max & Erma's!

Love a good #ThrowbackThursday and LOVE IHOP! Go try their Red Velvet French Toast, its AMAZE BALLS! Psst... that's what I had for dinner. 

Too early to tell what today will hold. But I'm endlessly excited for this weekend! I'm having a birthday luncheon with my friends at Hilton Downtown Columbus AND Sunday mom and I are going to go see the documentary, I Am Not Your Negro!

Let the Birthday Celebration Continue!

Stay tuned...


I'm kinda obsessed with my nail polish and my NEW Pandora rings, if you couldn't tell!

WCW: United States Governors

It's Wednesday, which means it's time for another WCW here on KJB Meets World!

So let's learn about some fabulous ladies, shall we?... We shall!

In 2017, 4 out of 50 states have women at the helm. Which arguably could be our biggest issue... But that's neither here nor there.
Mary Fallin

Kate Brown

We have Mary Fallin (R) in Oklahoma. Kate Brown (D) of Oregon, Susana Martinez (R) in New Mexico and Gina Raimondo (D) in Rhode Island. Now that's bipartisan!

Susana Martinez

Gina Raimondo

In 2016, there HAD been 5, with the fifth being Nikki Haley (R) in South Carolina. In 2017, POTUS appointed her as US Ambassador to the UN and then she was succeeded in office, by you guessed it- a man, Henry McMaster (R).

Nikki Haley

Besides Governors there are territorial governors for Guam, etc. and one of six is a woman, Muriel Bowser (D) for the Council of the District of Columbia.

You're Welcome!



Please note-- after grad school, comes law school, and after what ever time necessary in public service- I'm coming for Governorship.

Not Jack Bauer... but KJB...

Today is... the last day of 24!

I've been able to do a lot in my 24 years and even more so this last year.

I switched jobs- I left Lane Bryant for my current position at the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio, and I couldn't be happier. It gave me a renewed joy and purpose.

I took a trip to Florida with one of my best friends - it included an airplane ride sans adults, cause at 24, we're the adults. Jokes!

I'm even currently waiting for my solo flight home from my Maryland trip!

While in Maryland, I was able to enjoy two miraculous naps in the middle of the day, something I haven't been able to enjoy since college, and let me tell you-- that is definitely missed.

Honestly, 24 was great- almost immediately i.e. March and April, I was able to enjoy my teacher frands' Spring Breaks!

I finally pulled the trigger and applied for graduate school, I hope to start next month!

I have a lot of things planned in the next few months, and I'll be TWENTY-FIVE!

When I was 16, I had a completely different plan in mind for myself. But I wouldn't change where I am for the world.

Here's to another incredible year!



How could I forget that 24 also saw me buying my first car! #Adulting

WCW Update: Alaina Pinto

Remember our WCW... Alaina Pinto ?!

Well here's an update!

I'm living in Boston and loving it. It's a smart, clean and energetic city! I am the traffic reporter for 7 News on the morning show "Today In New England." 7 is an amazing station to work, it's in the heart of the city and I am so thrilled I have this opportunity. I'm still up and at 'em at 3am and on TV by 5am and after my traffic reports I am sometimes sent out, or stay in, to cover lighter, happier news. 

Can I just say, as a New England Patriots fan-- I'm insanely jealous of this move! She was literally at the Super Bowl victory parade!

Thanks, Alaina!

Keep up to date on Alaina by following her Instagram!

Flashback Fashion Friday: Weekly OOTD Round Up


Monday was Pizzuti field trip day! It was quite the adventure! I hope to go back in March when the new display is up and I'm even more excited to start a something new: going to a Columbus museum/gallery once a month for the next year!


Tuesday, I woke up early- put on my new shoes and hightailed it to Starbucks! Because I'll be damned if I wasn't starting my day off with my favorite drink, Chai Tea Latte with 2 pumps of raspberry! OH! And Conservative's tears! Suck on that, #StarbucksBoycott


It's the best month of the year-- & I hope you heard that as Aziz and Retta from Parks and Rec talking about Treat Yo Self!

I spent most of Tuesday thinking it was Wednesday and then Wednesday was never-ending.

However, I filed my taxes and I applied for FAFSA for grad school-- yep, hopefully I'll start my program next month, stay tuned.

All in all, hump day was a pretty successful day in retrospect.

Like it's February 1. Beyonce is having twins and it's Black History Month. Not to mention, we went to my favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner!


Well- I woke up thinking, we've almost made it. 


Day 3 of my Birth month and my presents keep rolling in... Love it! Today it was a heart wooden plaque for my gallery wall.

Today, at work we had docent training for the new exhibition and tonight is our Member's Reception! This exhibition is stunning and if you're in the area- you HAVE to check it out!



I don't know if you've noticed but I've been trying to follow my own example... I'm doing my own challenge!
