TODAY we celebrate with champagne, of course!

Not only is it Friday and I am excited to have a productive weekend full of checking things off my wedding to-do list. This week was also extremely good to me. For all of you new to ADOD, you can find out a little more about me here and thanks again for stoping by.

I have always been proud of the town I grew up in; this week the spotlight has been on sunny Arizona. All of my friends and family are enjoying a little golf and football (and lots of added traffic) this weekend. While, I wish I could be there, this is my second weekend at home in a row (which is a rarity these days) and I really could not be happier.  We will probably be hopping over to our favorite dinner spot for date night, if the weather is nice, enjoy a few drinks at The Rustic, and to top it off we will be celebrating a good friends birthday. Pretty much sums up my perfect weekend.

To make your weekend even sweeter, Rocksbox is giving all ADOD readers a month free subscription. Just use the code: ALIXOXO until tomorrow! If you have never heard of Rockbox, it is pretty much my new obsession.  How it works: sign up and fill out the style survey.  Once you complete the survey, you can add items to your wish list (I am a huge fan of Loren Hope and Gorjana). Rocksbox will then send you a package with three items for you to use as long as you want. Once you are finished, you can either buy the piece at a discounted price (I mean a major discount) or send them back in to receive another box full of jewels. Isn’t that genius? I think yes!


White Blazer / GAP White Burnout Tee / Flare Jeans (old/love this pair) / Black Pumps / DVF Cheetah Clutch (Sold out)/ Celine Sunglasses / Gorjana Geometric Drop Stud (c/o) / Jules Smith Micro Disc Necklace (c/o) / J.Crew Bracelet / Saftey Pin Ring / Catbird Rings / Dana Rebecca Lauren Joy Necklace 

Happy Weekend loves!

Morning are kinda my thing.

It’s my time of the day where the house is still quiet, the dogs are running around in our backyard and I can enjoy my coffee without interruption.  Without fail, my morning routine is consistent to say the least. I wake up between 6:30-7:00, depending on if I hit the snooze a few times, hop in the shower, and head straight to the kitchen to make my first cup of coffee.  I head to my desk to press publish on my post for the day (or let’s be honest: I sit on the couch with the TODAY show in the background), check social media, and sip my coffee while I check out my favorite sites and respond to emails.  After cup number one, I continue to get ready for the rest of my day.

I would say I am somewhat of a coffee snob, I always have been, because life’s too short to drink bad coffee, right? So when my friends at Nespresso sent me over their new Nespresso VertuoLine, I couldn’t wait to try their new American full cup of coffee + authentic espresso maker. I am normally a latte kind of girl, but sometimes I just want to be able to sip on a cup of regular coffee, so needless to say I am completely obsessed.  Did I mention I am on my 2nd cup already? It is perfect for a little extra energy at about 2pm (or 10am if you are like me), especially because you can make a single cup in an instant.

What’s your morning routine look like?
