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!

Giving Up Vegetarianism!

YOU GUYS. I have been a vegetarian for 7 YEARS. Until now!! The main reason is that I am hoping to specialize in eating disorders as a therapist, and I just feel like it's easier to not have any dietary restrictions right now. I will probably go back to being vegetarian once I have a few years of therapy under my belt. But for now, bring me alllll the meats. (Gotta take full advantage!)

After making my decision, I went and got a McDouble. I posted this picture on Facebook and everyone was DYING that I broke my vegetarianism with McDonald's lol. The problem is I am too poor to go to Ruth's Chris and also I am alone and not going to a sit down restaurant, and lastly THOSE HAMBURGERS ARE GOOD. I have no shame.

One of the things we are not big fans of over here in Connecticut is the lack of yummy little food places! If you live in Utah (most of you do) or have visited, you will notice there are treat shops instead of bars, and lots and lots of mid priced places to eat (Cubby's, Zupa's, 180 Tacos, Blue Lemon, etc.). NYC was good food wise (obviously), but out here in Connecticut it seems there is either fast food or sit down restaurants.

So, I have been on the mega hunt for places that you can get a full meal for under $20, without going through a drive through. I'll make a full guide about this once we move next summer, but in the mean time I will just tag them with Connecticut Guide here and you can view them all.

SO! Friday night we went to House of Bones in Derby, Connecticut, and it was soooo good! You order your food, sit down, and they bring it out to you.

Got this cutie lil dinner date! He's growing his hair out again and I'm PUMPED.

Pulled pork sandwiches are one of my favorite things! I am obsessed with theirs and will definitely be back. (If you are veg, these are actually pretty yummy and taste similar IMO.) 

I am obsessed with their logo lol. Next to this brick wall are these huge black elevator shaft doors. It definitely lives up to the name "House of Bones" lol.

I need to do a NYC guide as well! I think when I make them I am going to do the name, money level (requires waiter or not), and locations. If there's anything else you guys think I should add let me know!

Bath Bomb Valentine's Gift Idea

YOU GUYS!!! I found the cutest store called that sells the all time, CUTEST bath bombs. It's called Chasin Unicorns and their bath bombs even have little keepsake crystals inside! (Not sponsored by the way.)

I have been working on improving my product photography, so I put together an easy little Valentine's Day gift for those bath lovers in your life lol. 

This heart tissue paper is at Target right now and so cute!

I have a hard time actually using mine because they are so cute hahah. I just want like 10 in a container for decoration!

Anyway, I hope you guys have big plans! I will be in New York City for school alllllll day so I'm thinking we probably will be doing nothing. Dun dun dunnnnn. J claims he has something planned but I'm like "???? Every where will be closed by the time I get back to Connecticut?" So, we'll see!

I was complaining to J about this woman never answering my emails in a direct manner. He said, "She might as well say, "vague email below"!"

J was trying to wake me up so we could eat breakfast together. He was shaking me and saying, "Wakey wakey play with bakey!"
