A Day In The Life: Alexa LeConche

Every once in a while while scrolling through Internetland we'll stumble across a lady who is living her best life - who is authentically herself, bringing joy to the world, and whose love for Candelles shines so brightly we can't help but be pulled in and want to know more -- that's exactly how we feel about Alexa LeConche. 
Alexa is a Connecticut based lifestyle blogger, her blog She's Glitter and Gold is a source of daily inspiration in the areas of beauty, personal style, and travel and we just can't get enough!
We wanted to get to know more about Alexa - what does a typical day look like in her world?  We are so excited that she was willing to share exactly that with us!

6:00 AM – Wake up before Viktor and the pups to get a 45 min spin session in.  My favorite part about this (when I actually do wake up) is that I barely remember it happened so it’s like, a sneaky workout before my brain is fully awake. 

7:00 AM – Head back upstairs where Aubrey is eagerly waiting for me.  She’s an 11 year old malamute and definitely an early riser – however the only reason she doesn’t sleep in is because she wants to get her walk in so she can have some breakfast.  When I come back in from my walk with Aubrey, Norm finally gets up.  He’s a 3 year old rescue mix, and in typical younger child style he slowly wakes up, stretches, and meanders down the stairs to go out. 

 7:30 AM – After both pups are walked, I feed them and start making breakfast for Viktor and I.  Typically it’s sautéed onions + sunny side up eggs on an everything bagel for both of us.

8:00 AM
– Finally start getting ready for work.  This usually consists of playing some music on my record player while I do my hair and makeup. 

8:30 AM – Change into work clothes, make Vik and I lattes.

8:45 AM – Head off to work. 

9:00 AM – Arrive at work, go through my emails, and get ready for today’s cases.  I work in a courthouse so every day is different as far as the case load, but it helps to read through them in advance. 

9:30 AM – Head into court, most days it’s virtual from my desk which is great. 

1:00 PM – Finally time for lunch!  I have an hour lunch break so I usually head home to visit Aubrey + Norm and let them out.  After I walk them, I make all three of us smoothies.  For the pups I add varied cut up fruits to give their lunch an extra crunch. 

2:00 PM – Back at work, and usually heading back into court for the rest of the afternoon.

5:00 PM – Back at home and so grateful for it.  This is when I typically light a Candelles candle (9 times out of 10 it’s Amber and Vanilla or Sweet Vanilla, they’re my favs and just smell like home to me).


5:15 PM
– Walk + feed Aubrey and Norm dinner. 

5:30 PM – Head back downstairs for my second workout… that sounds like I’m overachieving but I promise it’s more like the “weight” component of my workout for the day.  I only break it down into Abs, Legs, or Arms.

6:30 PM – By the time I come back upstairs the wax has pooled and the house is flooded with my favorite scent.  I heat up some dinner and settle into the couch to watch Netflix and relax for a bit while I eat. 

7:30 PM
– Head upstairs to shower + do my skincare routine. I also bring my candle upstairs so when I get out of the shower my bedroom smells nice and fresh!

8:00 PM – Climb into bed to watch another episode or two on Netflix or read.  I’ve been big into crime novels lately but sometimes I need a Netflix break in between books!  

10:00 PM – Finally shut everything off, blow my candle out and head to bed (the earlier I fall asleep, the more likely I am to wake up for spin the next morning!) 

We absolutely loved getting a peek into Alexa's world!  If you've enjoyed this and want to connect with her, be sure to follow along with her on Instagram @alexaleconche and check out her blog She's Glitter and Gold.
