Your wedding day attire is one of the most important parts of your day.  You’ve found the dress and the accessories, but now it is fitting time and you have been tirelessly searching for the perfect shoe.   Now you can design your wedding day shoes with Milk and Honey for the exact look you’ve been searching for.

Milk and Honey‘s shoe design tool allows you to choose EXACTLY what you want on your shoe:

* your silhouette…pump, flat oxford, flats, sandals, platform pump, wedges…and more

* the toe…round, peep, open, pointed, etc.

* material…leather, patent, glitter, satin, croc…and many more

* back style…enclosed, straps, etc

* trim…piping, anyone?

* embelishments…think rhinestones brooches and bows

* heel height

One of our favorite parts about designing your Milk and Honey shoe is being able to pick the heel type and heel height.  You can’t even begin to guess the number of brides we have who need a wedge heel for their outside affair or a specific heel height to avoid hemming their gown and can’t find the right one.   It’s either too casual, too tall, too short, the wrong size, the wrong color…you name it!  Good news, Milk and Honey has wedge heels and you can pick the height choose from a ton of styles!

Here are some of our favorite styles from their inspiration gallery:

Something Blue - Milk and Honey Something Blue – Milk and Honey White Glitter Wedge- Milk and Honey White Glitter Wedge- Milk and Honey

 

Ivory Rosebud Pump-- Milk and Honey Ivory Rosebud Pump– Milk and Honey Milk and Honey Milk and Honey

When you are looking to sell your bridal gown, there are many options you can choose…ebay, listing websites, consignment, etc.  Consigning your gown may not bring you quite as much money, but you are much more likely to sell your gown.

Here’s why:

 

  • Brides want to try on gowns and see them in person before they buy- buying your wedding gown is a huge investment.  Brides looking at pre-owned gowns are looking for a deal, but they still want a gown in excellent condition.  It is scary to buy from a private seller, since you never know what you may receive in the mail!
  • Brides are more likely to trust a brick-and-mortar store- buyers have more protections when buying from a company vs. a private seller.  There is comfort in knowing exactly who you are buying from.
  • We handle the whole transaction- if you are a busy newlywed, you may not have time to quickly communicate with prospective buyers…it is also sometimes difficult and expensive to coordinate shipping.  We handle everything, so you just ship or drop off your dress and wait for your check!
  • We have the expertise to effectively sell your gown- With years of experience with couture bridal gowns, we are able to match your gown to the right bride!  We know construction, fit, and fabric information that prospective buyers want to know.

These are just a few reasons to consign your gown.  It will be worth it in the end when you have your check in hand!

Since we’ve started pilates here at the store, we thought we’d also start trying to see if we could find some yummy yet healthy recipes to really kick start summer and wedding season!

The girls at Fabulous Frocks have huge sweet tooths (teeth?), we decided for our first recipe we’d share “Baked Oatmeal.” So easy and so good-without the guilt! Eat it for breakfast or a healthy snack. They’re quick to make, small and filling and you can put all kinds of different toppings on each to add some variety. Enjoy!

 

Baked Oatmeal:

Ingredients:

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups applesauce, unsweetened

1 banana, mashed

6 packets of Sweetleaf Stevia or 1 1/2 teaspoons stevia powder or use 1/2 cup honey

5 cups, Old Fashioned rolled oats { I used Bob’s Red Mill}

1/4 cup flaxseed meal

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

3 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 3/4 cups milk (I used 1%)

Optional toppings: raisins, walnuts, chocolate chips

 

Nutrition Info: (without toppings)

Servings: 18* Calories: 143* Fat: 4g* Cholesterol: 25mg* Sodium: 32mg* Fiber: 4g* Sugars: 4g* Carbs: 23g* Protein: 6g*

Using the Weight Watchers Recipe Builder Points+: 3*

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix eggs, vanilla, applesauce, banana and Stevia together in a bowl.
  3. Add in oats, flax, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and mix well with wet ingredients.
  4. Finally pour in milk and combine.
  5. Spray a 12 and 6 capacity muffin tin with cooking spray or use cupcake liners.
  6. Pour mixture evenly into muffin tin cups.
  7. If using toppings add them onto the tops of muffins now. If using fresh or frozen fruit, drop it right into the batter.
  8. Bake 30 minutes until a toothpick in center comes out clean. Cool and enjoy or freeze them in gallon freezer bags.

Additional Notes:

  1. Use a half cup to one cup of honey in place of stevia if you don’t have any.
  2. Nutrition info is without any toppings.
  3. The batter will look RUNNY, don’t worry!
  4. Freeze them in an airtight container or Ziploc bag after they have cooled. Thaw overnight in refrigerator for morning you want them.
  5. Reheat 45-60 seconds.
  6. Spray the cupcake liners with nonstick cooking spray.
  7. Adding cream or milk over the top after warmed is very yummy!
  8. If you are gluten free, make sure you are using certified gluten free oats and baking powder.
  9. If you don’t have the stevia packets or powder only liquid, here’s the conversion chart.
  10. I used a 1/4 cup to fill each muffin and the extra batter I had was about a half cup and I “topped” off some that looked smaller.

We had a great time at bridal pilates last night with Jessica from Core Essentials Pilates! The Fabulous Frock girls were a little tired from a busy day of appointments and not too excited about having to work out at the end of the day but we had so much fun- all of us were just talking and laughing while working out-perfect!


We have seven more classes for this first session and we’d love to continue doing it. After a few sessions you can definitely start to see and feel results- trust me,
we’re definitely a little sore today!

Here are just some of the benefits:

-balance
-helps put focus on your breathing
-working out promotes clear skin
-prevents future injuries
-tone and build long, lean muscles without bulk
-reduce stress, relieve tension, and boost energy through deep stretching
-restore postural alignment
-increase joint range of motion
-improve circulation
-offer relief from back pain and joint stress
-enhance mobility, agility and stamina
-improve the way your body looks and feels

Come next week (and the weeks after). We promise it’s a great workout but fun too! There are so many other benefits that can help get you physically and mentally prepared leading up to your big day!
