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!

Living My Best Life

Thursday, January 25, 2018

GUYS. SCHOOL IS BACK IN SESSION!!! LIFE HAS MEANING AGAIN! I thought I would love having two days off my internship, but I actually really missed my classmates and felt like it was too much free time. 

I basically spent my break living in these velvet pajamas you have all been going crazy over on my Instagram (click here for the link) and watching lots of T.V. (current Quantico, Riverdale, The Path, Bachelor, and Colony season 2... I am a T.V. junkie lol). I also made some pretzels which was so soothing. I love trying new recipes and having a show on in the background. It is one of my favorite ways to destress. I just ordered a donut pan to make donuts this weekend and am v excited! If you have any fave donut recipes def let me know!

I also tested a bunch of new products! Here's what I thought of them:

1/ Ofra Makeup Fixer Setting Spray - I have been liking this a lot! I mainly love that the bottle is so huge and the mist comes out really evenly. It's so weird to think that I used to not use any setting spray lol.

2/ Becca Moonstone Highlighter - My sister gave me a little sample kit of a bunch of highlighters and I have been really loving this one! It goes on really well and has the prettiest sheen. And it's vegan and cruelty free!

3 / Zoya nail polish - I am loving this color and this color. Every year Zoya has a huge sale for Black Friday and I stock up haha. They have the best nail polish because it is natural and toxin free! Definitely try it if you haven't yet.

4/ Coconut oil chapstick - So my lips went through a weird dry spell and I decided to try to use a waxless chapstick. I didn't realize how hard it was to find chapstick without wax! I bought this one but ended up not loving it. It dries really fast and I like it when I can rub my lips together like an hour after putting chapstick on and can still feel it. So, if you have any recommendations for really nourishing chapstick, let me know!

5/ HSI Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner - I have been loving this shampoo and conditioner! It feels pretty on par with the other shampoo and conditioner I use, but I love that it has Argan Oil in it because I usually add that to my hair after anyway. My only qualm with these are that the pumps don't pump a lot of liquid out at one time, so I have to pump it about 4 times to get all the shampoo and conditioner I need (I use a lot haha). Side note: I cut my hair like a foot as you may or may not have noticed. It has been a fun change and I feel like it looks good, but I think my longer hair was easier to do, ha! So I don't think I would go this short again, but it is fun to know what it feels like to just chop it!

6 / Tarte highlighter - Another very good highlighter! It's also vegan and cruelty free. I switch on and off between this and the Becca one listed above.
