Final Hours of Notorious Sales!

We're in the final hours of Notorious sales! We're closing in on being able to write a $25,000 check to the ACLU Women's Rights Project, in addition to all the money we were able to donate to Democratic Senate campaigns across the country. We've heard from lots of you that you are getting these to give as gifts and one of you reached out to ask for a card to include with an explanation of the AMAZINGNESS that is this candle. As we're all about making making gift giving as easy as possible, we created our very first download for...

Costumes for when You’re Fresh Out of Fucks

Costumes for when You’re Fresh Out of Fucks

Last week, we brought you a long list of Halloween costume ideas based on Less than Ladylike candles. As we were brainstorming, we realized that we had a million ideas for our best-seller: Fresh Out of Fucks.  So we decided to give them their own blog!  Obviously, there are many television characters that are the epitome of the Fresh Out of Fucks aesthetic. So let’s start there! Judge Judy: Our favorite daytime courtroom judge could not care less about the drama you are bringing to her show. She has no fucks left to give for people who try to start...

(Really that last thing is pretty much everyone’s favorite thing about Halloween.) As we get older, however, the appeal of costumes like slutty nurse, slutty bee, male pregnant nun, or….whatever this is...wears off. (For the first two, I just googled “nurse costume” and “bee costume” because the patriarchy is strong with Halloween. But that’s a blog for another time.)

It’s the Hygge-ist Time of Year

It’s the Hygge-ist Time of Year

It’s that time of year again. In Ohio, the leaves are changing. The temperatures are dropping. And cohabiting couples everywhere are entering into another standoff over “who turned on the damn heat again?? ISN’T THIS WHY WE HAVE 1,000 BLANKETS??”  It’s time to indulge in the over-marketed, slightly misunderstood Scandinavian concept of “hygge.” If you believe the hype, chunky knit blankets, thick socks, and a roaring fire is all you need to ride out the winter months with nary a care. Candles have become a key part of the hygge-aesthetic. Their cozy glow illuminating your cozy scene for that perfect...

Where the Money is Going

Where the Money is Going

Thanks to all of you fucking wonderful people, Less Than Ladylike Candle Co. has donated $26,000 $34,500 to Senate campaigns across the country. We're also on track for a $20,000 donation to the Women's Rights Project at the ACLU! We never expected the overwhelming response to this idea and this product. We were unprepared for the outpouring of love and support for RBG and her legacy. But we are LOVING every minute of it. Because of the massive amount of donations we’ve received, we’re running into a wonderful problem: too much money to give away. We’ve expanded our donation list...
