Friday Faves: Tis Still The Season

Another crazy week here at Under Solen HQ that was kicked off with a classic Swedish advent coffee (glögg included). We’ve got lots of wintry adventures in the works, including some sweet slopes and snowshoe routes; we might spend a large part of our time invested in social media, but we’re equally committed to unplugging and spending time outdoors enjoying everything that nature’s got to offer!

But along with adventure planning, here are some of this week’s faves:

We kicked off our Profile series, where we interview movers and shakers in the world of new media. We’re very thankful that eco-journalist and new media celeb Adam Shake volunteered to be our first interviewee, talking about his company Simple Earth Media.

Being a female run business, we’re always excited to work with other super cool, progressive ladies, which is why we’re head over heels about our two latest projects we’re working on: Epic Wheel Works and She Jumps. Be sure to check out both.

Tis the season, and although we try to steer as far as we can away from traditional consumption, we do believe in putting some dollars towards good causes, and we’re excited to announce that the amazing fundraising initiative Passports With Purpose has almost reached double its original goal! (You can help them raise the last few dollars by going here… there are some sweet prizes up for grabs.)

And because we’ve always got travel on the mind: ever wonder what English sounds like to those who don’t speak it? Watch this video to find out.

    Hey there,

    Hope you´re doing OK over there. Now switching to swedish: jag ska till nåt som heter Fjällkällan i vecka 6 februari plus att jag ska till Storhogna vecka 8 med Petter och familj. Kanske jag kan ta lite foton och skriva lite ur ett typiskt “svensson-öga”? Kostar inget såklart men kan va kul!
