Find Balance in Your New Year’s Workout Resolution Here.

January 4, 2016

It’s that time of year again — the time for reflection that comes after holiday indulgence, but before the realistic onset of life in the New Year. Take this time to plan ahead and to create healthy goals and intentions (“resolutions,” if you will) that are challenging yet attainable. At milk + honey, we’re not extremists. We like balance and strive to keep it that way. So, when it comes to thinking about the year ahead, we’re setting out to engage our minds and our bodies equally — here’s how.

CrossFit + Sports Massage

Sprinting, climbing rope, box jumps, kettlebells, and flipping tires are only a handful of the high-intensity exercises CrossFit utilizes in its interval training program. After your WOD, take your stretching to the next level. Our deep-tissue, full-body Sports Massage helps to ease any muscle tension and soreness in joints, which will in turn, prevent injury.

Yoga + HydraFacial 

Bikram, Hatha, Ashtanga, Kundalini, Vinyasa. Whatever your practice may be, yoga is one of the meditative ways to exercise. Extend your calming environment outside of the yoga studio to include another relaxing sanctuary: the spa. Our Ultimate HydraFacial is exactly what your skin needs after a sweaty stretch session. Smoothe rough-textured skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and bring your skin back to its natural, youthful state without any redness or downtime.

Indoor Cycling + The Spa Partisan 

Between the adrenaline-pumping music, synchronized pedaling, and the feeling of relief after that last incline (er, turn of the resistance knob), we can’t get enough of indoor cycling. It’s not for the faint of the heart, but we challenge everyone to tap it back at least once in the New Year. Plus, if you cycle to the finish line, then you’ve certainly earned our Spa Partisan treatment. This full-body brushing is followed by a brown sugar, coffee, and crushed almond skin-polishing blend that leaves you feeling relaxed and renewed.

Dancing + Signature Massage with Foot Scrub

After shaking your hips and breaking it down on the dance floor, treat your feet to some TLC with our Lux Pedicure. The nail soak, shaping, cuticle maintenance, extra hydration, exfoliation, and warm oil treatment offer up an incredible one-two punch for your feet.

Boxing + Manicures

Who knew jabs, crosses, and hooks could greatly improve your cardiovascular health? Thanks to the vigorous workout that is boxing, you not only work up a great, healthy sweat, but you also tone muscle and improve flexibility and strength. Once the gloves are off, consider it time to polish that right-left combo. For guys, try our Buff + Go manicure. For ladies, you can’t go wrong with our m + h Manicure.

Baby Foot Is a Miracle Worker For Your Feet

December 2, 2015

From chapped lips and dry patches on your face to cracked, calloused heels, our bodies are very susceptible to winter’s colder temps. Thankfully, we’ve found a product that banishes flaky skin on your feet; enter Baby Foot. Using 17 types of natural exfoliants, Baby Foot not only peels away the dead skin cells, but simultaneously moisturizes the soles of your feet. In a nutshell, the name says it all — you’ll come away with baby soft feet. Our milk + honey Reservations Manager, Angela, swears by it and says that while it’s “a little terrifying the way it peels off, your feet will be as soft as ever.”

Baby Foot has earned rave reviews on Buzzfeed, Allure, POPSUGAR, and Refinery29, and chances are, you’ll feel the same way. That said, we must warn you — as you’ll see from the video — the path to “baby foot” is paved with some scaly, snakeskin-shedding-esque moments. Trust us, though, it’s worth it.

Pro tip: Winter is the best time to use Baby Foot because no one will be able to see your skin peel in those black booties.

You can find it all four Austin locations!
