Instagram Inspiration

From cones to sundaes, dairy-free to creamy milkshakes, the city’s ice cream shops have something to satisfy every sweet tooth. This week, we look at Instagrammers sharing their favorite local scoops.

The heat has truly arrived in the city, and let's face it: when that happens, iced drinks are the only thing on our minds. And for good reason, because is it even summer if it doesn't involve at least a few cups of cold brew? We think not.

With long, sunny days and cool breezes, Pacific Northwest summers are the ideal time to get outside to experience our serene lakes, towering forestry and crashing waterfalls.

After dealing with five weekdays of work, meetings, deadlines, commuting and other adult responsibilities, we deserve it: the weekend brunch.

What's your favorite part about the Fourth of July?

Take a few fashion pointers from these Seattle Instagrammers (and style bloggers) and make the streets your summer runway.

Everywhere we look, flowers are blooming. And since the sun has come out to play, frolicking through the blossoming wonderland that is our city, seems like a viable option.  

We're all about the dough.

Deep-fried dough, that is.

Few things evoke such a sense of wonder and possibility as an indpendent bookstore. From Elliott Bay Book Company on Capitol Hill to the Queen Anne Book Company to Wallingford's poem emporium Open Books, Seattle is full of them.

Getting lost in a concrete jungle can be overwhelming. But in a city full of awe-inspiring architecture, a walk through the urban chaos holds high potential.
