IMG01135-20110819-1439 GREAT IDEA ALERT: I caught Emily from Relishments in the act of brilliance in Philly at #HLS11. She put a label sticker on her water bottle including her name and twitter handle. If someone had the same bottle, she knew which was hers. And if she left her bottle behind in a session, someone could easily let her know they found it via twitter.  Such a great idea – I had to pas it on to you!
