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!

i'm sick of my face

Seriously. I'm way sick of my face. I'm way into taking photos right now, because I'm experimenting with new editing, except I don't have anything to take photos of. So, I end up just taking photos of myself before school while I'm waiting to leave. It's lame. It really is. I'm too obsessed with this new editing to stop though! So, if any of you would like photos... please email/comment/text/call/etc.!

Any suggestions of what else to photograph? All my photos are in the same setting. Maybe I"ll try one of those photo an hour things. It's just so hard to think of something to take a photo of every hour! Especially because lots of my hours are spent in school, and I'm not artistic enough to make my notebook and pen look different three times in a row.


It turns out I will be applying to grad school this December. Who even knew it was that close? I literally didn't. I for sure thought you had to be graduated before you applied, but apparently you can  apply before you graduate and just include your current classes? So, yeah. GRE here I come. Yay. (No, really. Yay. It will be so great.)

Well, we're off to a friend's reception! I love going to other people's weddings! The flowers, the food, the venue. It's just so fun. Benefits of living in Utah County, right?

life as of late: food 4 dayz

Do you ever get like, mega into cooking? I get on these streaks where I loveeeee cooking, and then I get on these streaks where I hateeee cooking. Right now, I love it.

We were going to go camping on Friday (keyword: were), so I packed our cooler with cute foods like bruschetta and crepes and cute bottles of root beer. We had suspicions the roads might not be open yet, and shortly after departing with a car full of camping gear we happened upon this lovely sight...

It was fine though, because it only took us five minutes to get there. So, we just went home and ate all of our delicious food! It was quite great. We went and saw The Book Thief later that night. I didn't really know what it was about, but it was amazing! If you live in Provo, definitely go to the dollar theatre. They have new seats that are like heaven for your bum. 

I have also been obsessing with Pop 'N Sweets! YOU HAVE TO GO THERE. It's amazing. Like, seriously stand up right this minute and get over there! They have sooooo much candy and soda! I have decided to set limits for myself and say once a week, one candy and soda per visit. So, this was this week's! 

This was a "Pop Shoppe" soda. My mom was telling me that you used to be able to take your empty Pop Shoppe cans into The Poppe Shop, and they would fill it up for you with any flavor of soda you wanted! Why don't they exist anymore! :(

The grape soda was delicious! And in the cutest bottle to exist. I've decided to not purchase things that have strange titles like last week's soda. Haha. Oh, and how awesome is that candy bar? I was chocolate and mint, and as you can see, the mint was aerated! It was really good. Sort of like an Andes Mint, except fluffier? (Shout out to my new macro filters that I am obsessed with.) (Shout out to my new husband that got me the macro filters that I am obsessed with so I am obsessed with him.)

I made this recipe for dinner, and they were delicious! (I left out the beans and mushrooms, and used fresh tomato instead of canned.) I had two... well, one and three quarters? Tofu is so gosh darn filling. 

A meat one for the bebe. :). I wasn't ever worried about being vegetarian while my husband was not, and everyone kept asking me "Are you going to start eating meat? Are you going to make Jake be vegetarian? What are you going to do?" and honestly, it's been super easy! Mainly, because we live off of Mac & Cheese, quesadillas, chili (Jake), and cereal. So, there's not a whole lotta cookin' that happens in this household. But, I have yet to encounter a recipe that couldn't work for the both of us!

And lastly, a cute picture I found of us (printing off some new pictures! yi! goodbye wedding pictures everywhere!) while waiting to be seated at The Melting Pot prior to marriage. I have no idea who took it, but I like the way it turned out. It's sort of like a beautiful accident, ya know?

We also saw The Secret Life of Walter Mitty over the weekend and grabbed a bite at Pizza Pie Cafe. Not a bad weekend... not bad at all. Now, we just need those roads to open so we can start befriending the wilderness!

P.S. If you haven't discovered Barcelona, please go listen to their Fall In Love album right now. It is seriously so amazing. I have been taking a break from Music Mondays because life is cray.

finished photoshoot!

Special thanks to the lovely Madi for being my model! My favorite ones are the dark ones on the grass. I just love the feeling they have to them and the way the lighting turned out.

I'm not sure how long I'm going to keep doing the $100, so make sure to email me if you are interested. I'm about to mega buckle down in school so I can graduate in December (woot!), so yay for that, but goodbye to free time. It will be worth it though. I'm really excited to finish up and get employed!
