Hi there!

Hi! Welcome to my corner of the internet. I'm a 26 year old therapist, feminist, photographer, and shop owner currently living in Seattle, Washington. My shop, Dealign with Feelings, is geared toward destigmatizing and normalizing mental health. I'm biased, but I think we have some pretty cute stuff :) Click the "shop" tab to see what we've got! I mainly post about my travel and daily life on here. With other random musings thrown in. I post more frequently (and about more feminism) on my Instagram @emmycoletti, so make sure you're following me there. Thanks for stopping by!

Due to the fact that I would like macaroons at the wedding, I have now tasted about all there is to taste in/around Utah County. I figured I would do something with this new found knowledge of macaroons and give you the low down on where has the best ones.
BYU: They're not very good. They're really crunchy and crumbly.
Whole Foods: They're decent, but just really small, so they don't look super cute. But, if you are in the Salt Lake area, it wouldn't be the worst to pick some up.
One Sweet Slice: These are the ones pictured above. They are also really small, but they are pretty cute. They sort of just take like sugar in a different form. I wouldn't recommend making the trip to Sandy, unless you are already there. Like, literally at that store for some other errand. And don't get coconut, it's not pleasant.
La Bonne Vie: LITERALLY SO GOOD. LITERALLY THE BEST EVER. I got one of each, just because they were the last macaroons that we hadn't tasted, and I wanted to be able to taste all of them. Like, I can't even explain to you how delicious they were. They were the perfect texture, the perfect size, the perfect everything. This cute little place is located in the Grand America hotel in Salt Lake, and literally I am making the 45 minute drive to get some more and order them for my wedding! If you ever need macaroons, seriously, save yourself the trouble and stress and just go there! It is absolutely the cutest ever! SO HAPPY.


My mother and I saw Sconecutter on our way to try the macaroons at One Sweet Slice. Years and years ago, there was a Sconecutter in Orem and my sister and brother-in-law were obsessed with it. My sister even drove all the way to West Jordan the other day to get one! So, we were really excited to get them, but they ended up not being what we remembered, which was sort of a bummer, but hey! At least we got to get a reality check!


My lovely brother-in-law got my air conditioning fixed!! It's so nice to not be sweating every time I get in my car between the hours of 10:00 and 7:00 now. The world is mine.

Just some happy things of the week for you.

XOXO
