“It’s important to remember that we all have magic inside of us.” - JK Rowling • January can be a rather dark month, and sometimes we all just need to spread around a little magic to get through it. Today on the blog I’m sharing my favorite ways to enjoy the snow 🤗 How do you make it through January? • *You can now shop all my outfits in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app. These pieces are old, so I’ve linked similar ones! http://liketk.it/2znZP #liketkit @liketoknow.it . . . . . . #seattlewa #universityofwashington #exploreseattle #visitseattle #whimsicalwonderfulwild #jkrowlingquotes #harrypotterquotes #myquietbeauty #gloomandglow #calm_collected #folkandstory #livemoremagic #frenchgirlstyle #yeglifestyle #yeg #yegger #yegblogger #ofsimplethings #slowandsimpledays #theslowdowncollective #everysquareastory #insearchofjoy #howihue #solovelysofree #seeingthepretty #smallmomentsofcalm #thesimpleeveryday #fosterthoughtfulness

This one’s for all the Harry Potter fans! This might actually be one of the best places to take photos in Seattle for you, because this building will give you all sorts of Hogwarts feels.

With a combination of Collegiate Gothic style architecture along with modernist glass and concrete forms, you’re definitely going to have a hard time deciding where to stand still for a photo op.



2. Chihuly Garden and Glass

View this post on Instagram

If you’re into art in all forms I’d recommend checking out the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibition while you’re in Seattle. The artist, Dale Chihuly, is a Washington native and has created more than a dozen well-known series of works and exhibitions around the world. My favorite part of the exhibition was when @witandfolly and I got a glimpse of the Seattle Space Needle through the glass. . 🔐 Tickets are $26 USD, but cheaper for kids and seniors. There is also a cafe within the property (Collections Cafe). It is a good spot to relax and have a nice lunch while enjoying the creative decor. #AydaJuneinSeattle . 📸 @witandfolly

A stay in Seattle isn’t complete without a trip to Chihuly Garden and Glass! Without a doubt, this impressive glass exhibit is unlike any other gallery you’ve been to.

Located in the heart of Seattle, you can expect to get lost in the fantastic glasswork and striking colors seen in their unusual installations.

Located on the south side of Queen Anne Hill, this small park is known for giving your photos that postcard vibe. Kerry Park is inarguably one of the best places to take pictures in Seattle if you’re all about the #views.

day in the city ⚡️

There’s so much hype around this market – but is it worth it? Totally.

If checking out the crafts and goods from local vendors is your type of thing or you’re just looking for some entertainment for the day, then this is definitely one of the best places to take pictures in Seattle!

An added bonus: There are plenty of fresh flowers here, which always makes for a good photo op.

Once you’ve had enough of the pastries and all that other fun stuff you can expect from a market, a stunning view of the waterfront awaits you on the deck outside.

Hoping to add more of a rustic, urban vibe to your content feed? Oddfellows is the perfect spot to grab a bite while getting content for the ‘gram. Exposed brick, high ceilings, and expansive windows (so you can expect great lighting) – you and your audience will adore the homey feel.
