✨RESPECT YOUR LASHES✨ Did you know lashes only grow 1cm every 2-4 weeks⁉️ It's so important to keep what you have! 🧖‍♀️The leading causes of lash loss are harsh, heavy mascara formulas and the aggressive removal of eye products. Fight back with La Roche Posay Toleraine mascara which is micro -arrested providing volume without weighing them down, and nourishes with ceramides.

hey girls! so you’re thinking of getting a brazilly wax, or maybe you’ve had one before and you’re just looking for a little help in reducing the discomfort. believe it or not, you 100% can do a few things at home to help the service run a little more smoothly (pun absolutely intended 💁‍♀️) . . 🔸 exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! using products such as PFB Vanish, a Merben bikini brush or a scrub, exfoliate your brazilly area the night before your wax. this will rid the area of any dead skin and allow the wax to pick up the hair easier - meaning a smoother end result and less pain for you! ♥️ . . 🔸 wear loose, comfy clothing - no tight pants (we don’t want a Ross from Friends in his dates bathroom moment!) this will allow the area to breathe and remain unrestricted after your wax. 👖 . . 🔸 take an otc painkiller like Advil or Tylenol an hour or so before your wax to help take a bit of the edge off. 💊 . . 🔸 if it’s your very first time and you’re feeling a bit nervous, book in for our brazilly virgin service. we tell you when to breathe, walk through each step and take even strips side to side so if you need to tap out, you won’t be left lopsided 😘

The future is filled with endless opportunities. As we enter spring, we enter a new life, new growth, and new beginnings. I am excited to start the next phase of my journey as I move to Halifax to start a new chapter in life with my partner, Steve. The growth of The Cure is also endless, as I’m focusing on providing you with products and brands that carry purpose and intention, I am also growing The Cure brand. I can’t wait to share more with you. I’m always reminding myself that change is a good thing! . . . #halifaxnoise #halifaxlookbook #cleanbeauty #loveyourself #naturalbeauty #ecobeauty #yyz #healthyskincare #healthyskin #cleanliving #naturalingredients #springequinox

Have you ever paused for a moment and wondered who you are impacting with your purchase? It’s something we don’t always do. I’ve become much more conscious of this since we started our family fundraiser but I must say, before that I was quite guilty of many quick purchases. I’ve learned though, when you choose to buy local- you’re choosing to support the faces you see. When you choose to buy a product from Deeply Aware, you are supporting the smiles on these 4 faces. Your purchases directly impact our family and we are so grateful you have chosen to support us. Each purchase goes entirely to paying for our kids sports. Hockey, baseball, swimming, track and field-they have all of this because you decided to support local! Thank you! Thank you so very much. From the bottom of our hearts✨ . If you’ve been following us you know we love to give back to you as well! We are only a mere 50 followers away from 1000. And once we hit our milestone we are doing our biggest GIVEAWAY yet!✨ . Supporting local doesn’t have to mean purchasing our products. We understand that everyone has different taste, and not everyone can afford it- but a simple share of our website, tag of a friend or follow on instagram, or Facebook can go a long way in helping us grow! Thank you!🙏🏼 . 💎Please swipe through to see some of our healing stone products and shop online at our website in bio!💎 . ✨www.deeplyaware.com✨ .

This Cormorant chef knife has seen some shit. All of our knives are made from high carbon steels that will develop a beautiful patina as acids in the food oxidize the surface.

Good morning beautiful Gods and Goddesses. This super moons energy has been so revealing, and brought up a lot of old self limiting beliefs. Feeling very connected to spirit and my guides lately, and when my mind begins to chatter spirit is quick to send me an eagle reminder which I am very grateful for. Our crystals have been doing a 2 week cleanse in our window, capturing the sunlight and moon light. They are super charged. Sometimes our crystals really need a good reset. It’s so powerful once you put them back to use.. the difference is unreal!🙏🏼💎 . ✨www.deeplyaware.com✨ • • • #jewelry #picoftheday #likeforlikes #healing #healingstones #crystals #crystalhealing #healingcrystals #macramejewelry #onlineshopping #meditation #healing #shoplocal #likeforfollow #shoponline #necklace #local #followforfollowback #crystals #healingcrystals #spiritual #metaphysical #deeplyaware #awakening #fullmoon #halifax #halifaxnoise #madeinhalifax #novascotia

Sticking with Shirreff Hall, that Andrew Cobb masterpiece. What’s your favourite detail about this splendid building?

Felt really springy yesterday when I went out to see what was around. This Common Loon was one of the many many birds that were out enjoying the sun. Not only was there a greater abundance of birds, but some key indicators were there: I spotted my first American Robins of the year (a classic spring migrant) but many of the birds I did see were well on their way in their transition to their summer plumage. Feels good! I did a little more research on the Common Loon after I took some of these photos and found some really cool information. These birds are truly meant for water and not much else. Except for in the breeding season, these birds spend all their time in the water. Their legs are very far back on their body, which makes them perfect for paddling and diving, but terrible for walking on land, where they are very clumsy. Unfortunately, when these birds get on dry land, their only option is to walk. Loons can’t take off on land, and require tens of metres of water which they literally run upon to get to the right state for flight. Sometimes Loons will spot roads and mistake them for rivers, landing and become stranded, not able to take off. Finally, the most interesting adaptation in my mind is something that goes against a pretty clear rule for all birds. Rather than the normal hollow bones that allow birds to fly by reducing their body weight, Loons have solid bones. This lets them sink below the water when they dive for fish, crabs, and other prey types. I love how well adapted the Loon is to its specific niches, and how useless it turns out to be in pretty much any other situation. Evolution at its finest!
