Treat Yo Self

Hey everyone! I hope that you are all doing well, staying warm and having a great week. I teased a little splurge that I made in my last post and I'm excited to show you what I got! I decided to use the pictures from the website because they are better and lighting is not ideal here at the moment, but I couldn't wait to show you!

I got myself a new Monbento Bento Box!! This beauty is a little bit pricey ($32.99 + a hefty shipping fee from France) but honestly it is so worth it. I love how compact it is, it fits plenty of food and let's be honest, it's gorgeous! I chose the Matcha color which is a really pretty mint color. I was debating between a few colors but I decided on this one and I LOVE IT. Can you tell I'm loving the minty cool tones lately? Oh and by the way, this is not sponsored in any way… I paid for it myself, they have no idea who I am.

The above is what is included with the bento box. You get two stackable containers (the minty containers at the bottom) and one smaller container that fits inside, two white lids for the container, a green top lid for the whole thing and an elastic band to keep everything together. They have other accessories that you can purchase separately which I'll probably do later.

I picked this up because I thought it would be perfect for lunch and snacks at work. It will help me save money by packing something every day and it will offer me a variety of things to eat during the day. AND it will force me to tap back into my creativity to put together new combinations to keep things fresh and interesting.

I won't lie, I also thought it would be a really fun addition to my blog! I think a Bento box series would be really fun and cute and would also inspire me to be more creative when I put my meals together.

I haven't had a chance to use it yet but I'm looking forward to putting together fun meals and showing you how it works out next week!

I hope that you are all staying warm and dry and safe if it is snowing near you! I'm working today but will definitely be keeping an eye on the weather.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and I'll see you next week! <3

No way the Carrots will touch the Hummus or Dolmas in that thing!

Beverlee said...

Yes, definitely do a bento series! The bento you got is beautiful in color and design. I loved the Vegan Lunch Box blog for the creative lunch ideas and bought several Laptop Lunch boxes. Love your previous pics of Tyler and TJ - you crack me up!

I concur - yes to a bento series! I have a small bento box with only three compartments, and could use ideas for work lunches!! I love mint green, and this looks totally gorgeous. They should sponsor you! ;)

Haha I love how you've picked up on that! It's true, I don't like my food to touch.

I will definitely be doing a Bento Box Series! I hope that it will be helpful to you :) I am so excited to baby sit those guys again later this month! I miss their faces.

Yay, I will definitely be doing the Bento Series! The mint is so pretty, I'm so glad I decided to go for it. Haha I wish they would sponsor me!
