Compartmentalization is an important task for any business owner.  I fight daily to keep the events in my life in cute tiny little boxes.  This may sound a little neurotic but  managing multiple brand identities, challenges of a 9-5, family, and the HOLIDAYS, things can get hectic.  So, I’m seeking some order by making some pretty bento inspired boxes for my lunch.  Gotta start somewhere.

I found these uber cute boxes at the Container Store.  That place is my idea of heaven…so organized, so beautiful.

Then on to my second favorite place in the world, Michaels, to get some waistband elastic.  I just happened to find this stunning silver elastic.

One lesson!

Advice, Lifestyle July 21, 2011

Obviously, friends are wonderful; humans are social creatures who need love and connectedness.  However, I have some wisdom for you from ROBERT GREENE’S book The 48 Laws of Power.  “Law 2, Be wary of friends-they will betray you more quickly, for they are easily aroused to envy.  They also become spoiled and tyrannical.  But hire a former enemy and he will be more loyal than a friend, because he has more to prove.  In fact, you have more to fear from friends than from enemies.  If you have no enemies, find a way to make them.”  The lesson here, don’t mix work and play.
