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!

Jake: (Saying he thinks he is chubby.) "I'm a gerber adult." 

*I hit my finger* Jake: "Oh did you hurt your fingie? Need to me to kiss... *pants me*

During the whole pregnancy fiasco at work lol.
Coworker #1: "You responded to my comment with a period. What does that mean?"
Me: "It's this face. :|"
Coworker #2: "No, a period is what she wants to have."

My mom referring to my fear of pregnancy: "You are so psycho crazy about this."

When I asked my mom about a "Lori Speaks" video series: "I feel like it might come back to haunt me."

DIY Jeweled Crown

I made these for our New Year's Eve and decided to post a how-to for anyone wanting to be royalty. This was seriously so easy, it doesn't even need step by step photos haha.

Glitter foam paper (This holds better and is more flexible than cardboard/regular paper, in my opinion. I got mine at Wal-Mart but there are so pretty colors on Amazon.)
Hot glue gun

1. Fold the paper hot dog style and cut v shapes. I used the triangle I got from my first v shape so they were all even.
2. Glue the ends together. (You may need to reshape your point a little bit, or cut off some excess.)
3. Add jewels!
4. Measure your head. You'll most likely need a rectangle strip in the back.
5. Super glue the strip.
6. That's it! You're a queen (or king) now!

And of course, you can't make a crown for yourself without making one for your pup!

Funny things people said:

Me: I kind of want to invest in some good makeup.
Jake: You got me all excited there. I thought you were going to say you wanted to invest in a mutual fund or something.

Jake: (referring to malasadas) They have these really good dessert pillows.

My mom: He was a good friend, not like a good friend, but like a good person as a friend.

Ok, not gonna lie. This week has been absolute MURDER. In the realest sense, my life is literally falling apart. I'm going to do a separate post on it, because I feel it's important for the world to know why I am so non-social lately. 

But, I was able to muster out a happy list so maybe I'm not completely dead yet.
