Giveaway! Wax Buffalo Candles for You and Your Bestie

This post is written in partnership with Wax Buffalo.  

Update: This giveaway is now closed, but it's still a great post, so keep reading! 

Between work, volunteer opportunities, wedding planning, the blog, and keeping my home from looking like a tornado has come through, it has been a crazy, crazy year so far - probably one of the busiest I’ve ever had. But I’m not here to whine because I know women everywhere are in the same boat as me, AND on top of your work ambitions, community organizing, and side hustles, so many of you are also working double, triple overtime to make sure your kids are provided every opportunity to follow their dreams, and, like, stay alive. My hat is off to you crazy gals - I truly don’t know how you do it.

I know that everything we’re doing is worth it, but at the same time, I think we forget to take care of ourselves in our efforts to ensure that everyone around us is well taken care of. We forget that making others happy and ignoring our own bliss isn’t sustainable. We have to make sure that we’re taking some time to unload some of the stress and just chill out. We deserve it, and we need it.

A night off looks different for all of us. I know for many of my friends, it’s putting their feet up with a glass of wine and a good book. For others, it’s working through a new piece at the piano. And girl - do whatever you need to in order to feel your shoulders relax, heart rate go down, and lose track of the hours that have passed because you’re so immersed in your good time.

Scent is a powerful tool that can help enhance our me-time. Whether a night off means getting those creative juices flowing or sinking into the couch cushions, my friends at Wax Buffalo can help you set the tone for your evening. I ran into their products several years ago at a local artisan event and haven’t looked to any other candles since.

Wax Buffalo candles are created with American-made soy and the best essential oils. They’re hand-poured, small-batch, and the most beautifully branded candles you’ll ever come across. (Seriously, any time I have one out and a guest doesn’t know about them, they ask where they can get one.) The scents are incredibly unique, and I use different ones for different occasions. And to top it all off - the company is owned and operated by one of the most hard-working, boss-babes you’ll ever meet. Needless to say, I was over-the-moon when she agreed to team up with me.

The Giveaway

EDIT: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! 

We at With the Specs and Wax Buffalo want to give you and your bestie a jumpstart to the relaxing nights that you deserve by sending each of you a pretty Wax Buffalo candle. Whether it’s sending the hubbie and kids out for a movie and ice cream or committing to stop checking email, it’s time for you to and your gal pal to take a break.

While these candles would make an AMAZING Mother’s Day gift, in my last post, I put together a guide for Mother’s Day gift choices (all of which would pair great with a Waxy B). Check it out here.
