Alex’s Lemonade Stand’s bracelets are more than just a fashion accessory. These bright yellow bracelets are designed to help raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer research. Each piece of jewelry in this playful and vibrant collection is designed to inspire hope, confidence, and cheer to those who wear them. These fun bracelets are a part of the Chavez for Charity collection, which is passionate about support organizations and causes like these.
In 2013, Chavez for Charity founder, Julie Marie Chavez decided to combine her love of jewelry making with her desire to help out ten amazing causes. She wanted to create bracelets that people would not only love to wear, but also she wanted to help raise awareness and funds for those incredible charities. Julie decided to design ten different collections each utilizing a specific color palette that matches or is inspired by the organization’s logo. Her idea was to have each bracelet in the collection crafted with the organization’s assigned color as a way for people to identify which cause they’re supporting.
While some jewelry lines might donate a small portion of each item sold to an organization, Chavez for Charity is truly different. The company donates 25% of the gross proceeds each collection sold to its corresponding cause! From 2013 to 2015, Julie’s company was able to donate $400,000 to its partner charities.
Shop these fashionable bracelets at our 2nd Street District and Hill Country Galleria locations.
Chavez for Charity collections include:
Alex’s Lemonade Stand | Best Friend Animal Society | Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation | Gift for Life | Matthew Shepard Foundation | Pencils of Promise | STOMP Out Bullying | V-Day | Water.org | Whole Planet Foundation
When it comes to rejuvenating your skin most people assume exfoliating with scrubs or a loofa is the way to go. However, those types of products can actually do more damage to your skin by exfoliating too rough and causing irritation and inflammation. To keep your skin clean, soft, and smooth make the switch to Supracor, a line of antimicrobial, antifungal, allergen-free products available exclusively at milk + honey River Oaks. Continue Reading…
Summer vacation. Those words elicit feelings of relaxation and visions of an island paradise. But why travel so far away, when Houston boasts some of the best spots for a fantastic getaway. Inspired by the beauty of the city, we decided to create our own staycation guide filled with museums, restaurants, must-see attractions, and other great places to explore.
From blonde to brunette, short to long, curly to straight hair, everyone is clamoring to join the beach wave trend. To achieve that straight-from-the-ocean-tousled style, our talented SALON by milk + honey stylists recommend one product in particular: Kevin.Murphy’s Hair.Resort.Spray.
While most aerosol sprays dry out your locks and leave a sticky residue, Kevin.Murphy’s is formulated with wheat amino acids to help your hair retain moisture, add a healthy gloss, and revive dull and damaged ends. In addition to those hydrating acids, this volumizing beach spray has two other powerful ingredients, hydrolysed silk and the Kevin.Murphy X-HP™. The hydrolysed silk is a potent protein, mainly used in conditioning treatments, and gives the hair a soft texture. But what really makes the Hair.Resort.Spray stand out from other texturizing sprays is the X-HP™, which transforms into a heat protectant that can withstand up to 420-degree heat. The Hair.Resort.Spray is for both men and women and like all of Kevin.Murphy’s premium haircare products, it’s sulfate, paraben, and cruelty-free, and utilizes recyclable and biodegradable packaging.
Shop Kevin.Murphy’s Hair.Resort.Spray and other luxurious haircare products at your favorite milk + honey location.
Pro tip: For those wanting smooth and touchable waves year-round, experience the innovative American Wave treatment, available exclusively at our Arboretum Market salon.

Thanks to prolonged daylight, rising temps, and a general proclivity for the outdoors, the Summer months usher in an entirely new set of things to do and products to “swear by.” As for us? We’re gravitating toward bright nail polishes, ice-cold treats, water-oriented activities, and most importantly, all forms of skin/sun protection — a perfect mix of essentials for hot weather. Keep reading for our product picks for the month ahead.
Ocean, sun, earth, and atmosphere. They’re not only the four elements of nature — they’re also the principles behind vegan skincare line, OSEA. Inspired and sourced from the ocean, these products are new to the milk + honey family and are available exclusively at our 2nd Street District location.
Starting now, you can cool off with our summer seasonal Mint Mojito scrub, which features refreshing notes of spearmint and lime. Made with organic sugar, this invigorating scrub gently buffs away dull, dry skin. The calming aroma of organic spearmint essential oil not only puts your mind and body at ease, but it also soothes muscle and joint pain. The organic lime essential oil is packed with rich antioxidants and nutrients to combat and protect your skin from damaging free-radicals elements.

Whether you prefer the challenge of the one-legged crow pose or opt for something more restorative like child’s pose, yoga is an excellent way to exercise, meditate, and relax all in one. To help us find our zen, we asked two of our 2nd Street District massage therapists, Lala K. and Kelly M., to show us some of their favorite yoga sequences, which everyone can do, too. Grab your mat and follow along.
Most people assume that lip balms, butters, and glosses are the best way to protect your lips from sun exposure. Not so. While these options certainly nourish and hydrate your lips, a true sunscreen is what you need to avoid those harmful UVA/UVB rays. Without proper lip sunscreen protection — like our favorite from Supergoop! — you’re actually allowing more UV rays to pass through the protective barrier, causing your lips to dry out and age faster.
Supergoop! founder, Holly Thaggard, started this premium line of sunscreens after learning two frightening facts. First, skin cancer is the most common of cancer in the United States, and second, that 90% of all telltale signs of aging are due to over exposure to the sun. She decided to raise awareness about these issues and began creating sunscreens that are lightweight, never greasy, are easily absorbed, and most importantly, protect your skin. Supergoop! sunscreens have been clinically proven to neutralize free-radical agents and improve collagen production, along with reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyper-pigmentation. But what truly sets Supergoop! a part from the mainstream sunscreens is that its products are oxybenzone-free. Oxybenzone is a harmful chemical that has been linked to hormone distribution and cell damage.
We’re loving Supergoop! Shine On Lip Screen. Formulated with grape seed extract, it delivers antioxidant protection and fights premature signs of aging. Just apply before or after your favorite lip products. $22
Another must-have? Supergoop! Fusion Lip Balms. Available in two different scents, this product is packed with shea fruit butter to lock in moisture and acai berries to combat harmful UVA rays. $10
