Alleyways and Ice Cream Days

Thank God it’s Friday! Sometimes living in a small town can make us feel like there’s absolutely nothing to do, but we are finding that that is when you go out and enjoy the more of what we see and experience everyday. IMG_6418 Grove City alleyways are some of the most beautiful alleys you can experience. You’ll find them all along broad street behind the local businesses downtown. They can lead you to a main road or a fun business, which is where we are headed today.

IMG_6427

IMG_6448 We are going crazy over this new fringe vest that just arrived this week, it pairs great with a white v-neck and denim bottoms or even a pair of shorts and one of our local tees! Shop this look: Vest: $49 & White V-neck: $30 and Necklac: $21 IN STORE NOW!

IMG_6443

When this new vest arrived we were inspired to explore, have fun and take in the joys of the beautiful weather. To our surprise what we thought would be a sunny day turned out to a be a rainy one, and we then were given a choice. To be bummed by the rain, or… continue on with our adventure. IMG_6595 IMG_6598

We chose the latter and decided to go to Sweet Jeanie’s, “The happiest place in town”!

IMG_6599 IMG_6488 We were not disappointed and after much deliberation we decided that a scoop of Zebra Stripes in our favorite waffle cone would brighten up the cloudy day we were having.

IMG_6489 Without much time, it did just that.

IMG_6480 IMG_6505

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

IMG_6580            Stay positive. Find the joy in the little things & make your weekend a fabulous one, we sure plan to 😉

Water to my soul

IMG_0172

Oh my goodness guys, after battling whether to write this post in first or third person (because I write a lot of the posts) I finally decided to be vulnerable and write to you guys directly.

READY. SET. AND… GO.
IMG_0176
Okay, first thing’s first. My name is Saria Dorsey, and I am the Creative Director with JMK.
I have been blessed with the opportunity of planning the fashion shows, social media, and taking fun pictures of the gorgeous models.

  I LOVE MY JOB.
(understatement of the century)

IMG_0162

Now here’s where things get a little awkward for me, but uhmm… I have something to tell you guys… I may have kept a secret from you all, but uh..
(takes a deep breath)

I LOVE TO SING.
Sometimes I pretend I am Beyonce’ or Katy Perry when I am cleaning my kitchen… in heels.
I honestly just love the emotion behind music and the energy from an audience. Sometimes I want to plan a concert, and then my insecurities get the best of me, I get nervous, and keep on with the routines of life.

IMG_0237

With the help and support of friends, I am making baby steps towards pursuing my music.
I believe that talents are meant to be shared with people, whether you’re the best singer in the world making millions, or just prefer it as a hobby,
Talents are gifts, and gifts… well they are gifts, and they have one purpose.
TO BE GIVEN.

IMG_0194

So for all those who’d like a good song to sing in the shower
check out this single I am on
w/ MR. HANZO titled // Water to my Soul
I had the opportunity to collaborate with Alexander Catedral + David Wade, two of my talented friends that worked hard to release this album and it is AMAZING.
Check it out.(:

IMG_0161

I’d love to know your thoughts.
Did it make you dance? Do you feel like you should go downtown, have some fun, like the night is all your own… ← that will make more sense once you listen (:

IMG_0230PS. This Chambray top Is one of our spring arrivals.
Isn’t it adorable?!

I truly appreciate everyone’s support.

Be  sure to come out  to Sweet Jeanie’s this Saturday for “Wake Your Neighbors”
I will be performing with MR. HANZO along with many other talented musicians, like JMK Model Hannah List!
Support local music, it’s worth it.

Why La Vie En Rose?

La Vie en Rose is french for life in pink, and this year we wanted to create a show that not only highlights spring in itself, but the feelings and colors it brings. Winter can be rather grey and bring the blues, so this year for our spring show we want to present the very opposite to you!

SWEET JEANIE’S

IMG_1030Ticket Proceeds?

OLDE TOWN GROVE CITY!
We love being in a town that is not only supportive of each and every business, but is also one of vision and creativity. This year we really want to give back to our town, and all that it is moving towards, by buying a ticket you are not only paying for an event, but giving back to Grove City.
Tickets are: $8 for students $10 for adults and can be purchased at:

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?!

PLAN TO PARTY!

& INDULGE
in all the SWEET things of life.

IMG_8753
Plan to
LAUGH with those you LOVE
&
TREAT yourself, because you deserve it

IMG_0696

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?!
We have all been there, that awkward moment where we either dress too formal, or not formal enough. Take a deep breath and know you don’t have to go out shopping for an evening gown. We would suggest cocktail attire. Be creative, be you, and be comfortable. For all you last minute shoppers who are nervous you need  a new look, feel free to shop in the boutique before the show it’ll be set up and available to you starting at 6!

We hope to see you there!!

“Pledging” to stay Warm & Cozy

IMG_0177Making time to sit back and have moments that bring warmth to the heart cozy during life’s hectic moments is key to not only getting by, but to enjoying what life has to offer us.

IMG_0199Halle + Sarah are two gorgeous gals that got to  share warm moments over coffee in the middle of a very hectic week as they were both participating in the craziness of pledge week.

IMG_0241It was beautiful to watch them share laughs and take in great moments with one another as they both had had exhausting days.

IMG_0230

IMG_0265

IMG_0279Recently, a common theme of ours has been the sparkling snow and shivering bones. As enchanting as the winter is, our feet are tired of slipping on ice and our noses are sick of being numb. That being said, we will never be ready to part from cozy knit sweaters, freshly brewed coffee, hand made blankets, and warm toes. The feeling of sitting in perfect company while watching the snow fall is one of our favorites. Although it seems as if life never stops running faster than you and time flies even faster, sometimes forcing everything to stop is essential. Stop thinking, stop stressing, stop working and just breathe. Quiet your mind with Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, calm your heart with soothing conversation, and warm your body with soft sweaters.

Recharge, restart and continue to inspire.

Adventure’s Hues // Bye Bye Blues.

Many of us have experienced the need for adventure while also experiencing the need for cash. No matter the age, we all still like to have fun. Here are some helpful tips on things you can do that are low cost, while still adventurous and fun.

IMG_0314First things first. We all have those little nooks around us that we seem to overlook. Visit your local antique shop. thrift store, or coffee house with that friend you’ve been meaning to hang out with. You’d be surprised how much fun you two will have finding little treasures or finding that old top you gave away.

IMG_0328-2IMG_0328

IMG_0342

IMG_0321IMG_0336

Carpool to the city. When you split gas costs you’d be surprised how much you save! Get dressed up, blast your favorite jams, and get on the interstate for a night on the town. You won’t regret it!

IMG_0346Lastly, we suggest finding an underground musician you’ve never heard, you will usually find that local musicians want more than your money, but your company as well. You’d be surprised how many $5 cover charges are out there with AMAZING music to accompany them.

We all desire moments that make our hearts beat, our eyes water, and bring the chills to our skin. We all want to LIVE.

Don’t let the lack of  the green, give you the blues. Embrace Adventure’s hues and do what you’ve always dreamed of doing.

The Urbanist

IMG_5890

IMG_5900

IMG_5984

Because our home is small-town Grove City, day trips into the city are absolutely essential. These urban adventures remind us how in love we are with the city life– fast cars, industrial-chic buildings, warm coffee shops. As we walked the streets, we peeked into small boutiques and local restaurants. The warm colors and raw textures were so beautiful in the afternoon sunlight and the smell of delicious food and coffee filled our curious noses. We left the glorious sky scrapers feeling inspired and refreshed.

It is important to leave your comfort zone and explore new places. Feel overwhelmed with beauty and inspired by creativity. Don’t be afraid to get lost–wander and wander until your legs are sore. Who knows? Maybe you will find a new study spot or a place to meet with your friends.

“There’s no time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this”
