Interrupt your everyday whirlwind in the city with a something that connects you to nature, like your watch. An organic design by Analog Watch Co slices wood paper thin providing a flexible band. The mechanics are hidden behind the face, hands pace over beautiful grains in the wood swirling and dipping the way the earth grew them. The collection features many combinations including Makore and Red Sanders, Silverheart and Maple, Teak and Bamboo, Leather and Blackwood. Founder Lorenzo Buffa gets us psyched for more natural elements in the future, “We’ve already been playing around with concrete and stone and have some great things in store! Basically, we really love organic materials. We also love the idea of doing something that most other watch companies are not—really pushing the sculptural/high design component.”  Check them out on Kickstarter.

From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
