New Video & 2018 So Far

Hello everyone,

I am writing to you all today in a freezing office and with another cough drop in my mouth. Yesterday morning I woke up with the back of my head throbbing and found that to be very peculiar. I remember rising up from my bed to take a drink of water and realizing that my throat felt odd. I pretty much spent all day yesterday in bed and was probably asleep most of the time. The only productive thing that I did was edit my latest YouTube video which is now up on my channel. Originally I was going to do a voice over in this video, but with my voice sounding super ridiculous right now, I refrained from that idea and decided to put some music in the background instead.

I was originally going to continue my closet series with my skirts, but it’s been so cold  everywhere that I decided to do a scarf video instead! I wear all of my scarfs differently which you will see in this video. I feature all my scarfs and the different ways that I like to tie and wear them!

2018 has started off on a sick note, but I am trying not to let this prevent me from working on what I want to accomplish! I also want to thank anyone who has subscribed to my YouTube channel. I have 24 followers now! I can’t wait to see that family grow. I also want to thank all 72 of you that have subscribed to my blog and have allowed me to vent about things and gush about others! To anyone feeling sick since we are in flu season, I pray for you to get healthy soon. Keep washing your hands, cover your mouth when you cough and sneeze, stay hydrated, and call into work if you must! Get your rest and watch my latest YouTube video and be sure to check out my other videos as well and subscribe to my channel!

Closet Series: My Shoes

Okay, I mentioned on here that I was going to do a closet series in one of my previous posts. If you are new here, this means that I am going to be doing a series on my YouTube channel where I show viewers exactly what is in my closet. I am dedicating videos to focus on a specific collection of clothing or accessories, so I started off this series by showing you my shoe collection!

Being a fashionista that is actively on the lookout for current fashion trends, but on a budget at the same time, I tend to hold onto a lot of my items for several reasons. First off, trends from the past always have the potential to come back. Secondly, if my items are in good condition and fit well still, why would I toss them unless my personal style has changed? Lastly, I just love having several options and pieces to work with!

I am going to put my latest YouTube video on here to show you all my shoe collection. Just a fair warning, I have A LOT of shoes. In fact, this video is almost 20 minutes because of all the shoes I have! I encourage all my followers on here to subscribe to my YouTube channel, especially if you love fashion! Other than my love for fashion, I have a deep love for music, so I added some music that I really love to the background of this video, including a song from a young, local artist here in my hometown! Always support local businesses and local music. By doing so, you are helping someone’s dream get that much closer to them! I hope to see you all subscribe to my YouTube channel 🙂

Thank you for reading and Stay Stylish!

Rebecca Minkoff: Guitar Pick Hinged Cuff Review

Rebecca Minkoff is a fashion designer with her own global brand where she sells apparel, jewelry, handbags and even footwear for women just to name a few things. The CEO, co founder, and brother to Rebecca, is Uri Minkoff who has his own line of men’s accessories. I had never heard about Rebecca Minkoff until my father gave me one of my Christmas gifts which was Rebecca Minkoff’s Guitar Pick Hinged Cuff bracelet in gold.


My father and I both love music. We both get really passionate about new music and classic tunes and introducing people to new music. So when my father saw a bracelet with a guitar pick that said Love on it, he purchased it for me.  I can go on and on about spending the majority of my childhood in the CD room listening to my dad’s CD collection and any albums that had interesting artwork or an interesting band name, but I want to dedicate this blog to reviewing this product.

First off, this isn’t something that I asked my father to get me for Christmas. He told me that he was shopping for my mom, when he saw this bracelet and thought of me (my heart is melting right now) and he himself had never heard of Rebecca Minkoff. He found the bracelet inside a department store, but it can also be found on her website at

I LOVE the bracelet. My initial reaction when I saw it was to put it on! I removed the tag and clipped on the bracelet on my left wrist. I grew curious about this new brand that I went straight to her website to look at more things. If you sign up with your email, you can get 15% off your first purchase!

As my day had progressed on Christmas, I was super happy to show off my bracelet when I noticed a problem…

The $58 bracelet’s clip was not getting the grip it needed to stay on very long.

If I could give this bracelet five stars, I would have. But for a $58 bracelet, you would think that the clip used to secure it around your wrist was a better quality. I would put on my jacket, it would snap off. I would raise my hand, it would snap off. I would shake someone’s hand, it would snap off. Unbelievable and definitely unacceptable.

When I told my father, he had told me that someone had left a review of this same bracelet with the exact same complaint. I am going to review it on Rebecca Minkoff’s website and say the truth. The truth meaning that the bracelet is beautiful, but really needs a better way to secure itself around your wrist. The part of the bracelet that I’m referring to is the one circled below.


My father was able to take care of this issue by securing the clip together, and tapping it gently with a hammer to flatten the little ball point so that the clip wouldn’t break away from it so easily. Although the solution was a simple one, customers should not have to do this at all. Especially for $58 worth.

The items in her site are overpriced, but she does have an under $100 section and an under $50 section. Jewelry and accessories are the most affordable options on there. Never be afraid to give an honest opinion or experience about something new. I love that Rebecca Minkoff is a young fashion designer who made her dream happen, so the least I can do is be honest with her about my first impression of one of her products so that her company knows what they need to pay more attention to.

I love my bracelet, just not the hassle. Always remain grateful and do not be afraid to give new things a try!

My Christmas and Future Collection Series

Is anyone already dreading all that after Christmas clean-up?

I am currently looking at my closet and wondering how I am going to clean it all out, but I missed blogging and now that the struggles of Christmas shopping and preparations is over, I am back and ready to share some new and exciting things that are happening!

First off, for those of you that celebrate Christmas, I hope it was merry!

My family made some homemade tamales and it is no wonder so many people would rather buy them instead! It is a lot of work…

Christmas came and went. I am happy to say that I got what I truly needed this Christmas which was a new laptop! My old one would not charge at all. It would stay on 0% and shut off if it was unplugged. The service was slow, and it caused major set backs in a lot of my videos, but I am happy to say that I have a new laptop that will hopefully be more reliable in the years to come. I spent a lot of time with family that I hardly get to see and I enjoyed every second of it. I have been eating so many tamales, but I am going to get back on that workout grind!

My last YouTube video was Last Minute Gift Wrapping Hacks, that I uploaded Saturday and I am currently working on my collection series which is where I pretty much dedicate a video to showing all my shoes, or all my skirts, dresses, scarfs etc…

I got two new pairs of shoes this Christmas, so with that said, I am going to kick things off with my shoe collection! If you are interested to know more about what exactly I have in my closet, you will definitely want to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see my collection series that I am going to have. You can find me on YouTube at AlamoCitySara

I got 248 views on my Rainy+Cold Day Outfits video which is wonderful! I’m so glad this is being useful for some style inspiration! Aside from this video, my Emperor Kuzco Costume Tutorial video still has the most views at 377 views! Be sure to give it a thumbs up if you like what you see and subscribe to me! Take a look at my rainy+cold day outfit video if you missed it right here:

I will get my next video up asap, but in the meantime I want to know what you all got for Christmas because I would love to hear all about it! Be sure to always remain grateful for what you have and to just be good people! We only have about a week left of 2017 so make it count!

Stay Stylish 🙂




Last Day of School Outfit + Future Plans


I know many of you hear these words when someone has had enough of whatever is going on and are really frustrated. HOWEVER…I am actually saying this in total happiness and joy because I have officially completed the Fall semester of 2017! I can finally focus more on my personal endeavors for the next two weeks, which means I will hopefully have some more YouTube videos posted on my channel for you all to see as well as more blog posts on here. I still post daily on my Instagram account which you can find at: alamocitysara

I miss writing on here and I know that I haven’t been as active as I have in the past, but with the workload of being a full-time student out of the way, I know this will change. I have only received one final grade which was a 97 in Business Communication. I am still waiting for my other grades, but as soon as I get them, I will let you all know. With that said, I want to take a moment to congratulate anyone who may be graduating this year! I personally do not know anyone who is, but for those all around the world who are…


Although I am done with school for now until Spring, I wanted to show you guys what I wore for the last day of school. I wanted to end this tough semester on a good note, so I wore my power color: Red!


My mom thinks that I am obsessed with plaid and you know what? She’s absolutely right! Especially red plaid! Black and red just go so well together and I just love wearing these colors. More than half my closet consists of these two colors together and I wouldn’t want my wardrobe to be any other way. A lot of those who have red hair refrain from wearing red clothing because they think it will be a bit of an overkill, but in my book I strongly disagree.

To quote Sheryl Crow’s lyrics, “If it makes you happy, it can’t be that bad!”

Everything in this outfit are pieces that I’ve had for at least two years. The plaid top is from Macy’s and the brand is Material Girl. You cannot see it in this picture, but on the back of this blouse where my shoulders are, there are black sequins! Sequins are a must in your outfit if you plan on going out on New Years Eve!

My leather skirt was on clearance at Express. Still a shopper on a budget here! The tights are from Target and the flats are from Shoedazzle. I’m due for a new pair of black flats now that I think about it. I also want to bring up the fact that when I woke up yesterday morning, I had no idea what to wear. When in doubt, go for one of your go-to outfits or keep your outfit neutral with a pop of color. This will give you an effortlessly cool look for the day.


  1. Loved Ones

Other than my fashion endeavors, I plan on spending some time with loved ones. I get so busy with work and school that it is always a struggle for me to make time for everyone I care about that does not live under the same roof as I do. I struggle with the fact that I spread myself too thin because I try to make time for everyone. So even though I am looking forward to spending time with friends, I am also going to challenge myself to continue to put myself first.

2. Fitness

I am also going to try to focus on my fitness during these next two weeks. I am a runner, but I hate treadmills. I only want to run if it’s in the great outdoors, but if it’s cold outside, I am not going to want to leave my warm house! I also rely on the gym on campus and at work to help me stay active and fit, but if the facility is closed, so is the fitness center! Let’s not forget the fact that my hardcore Mexican family is going to be making a ton of tamales and all these other goodies and I cannot say no to food!

3. Reading, Writing, Drawing

When I am not drowning in homework or focusing on fashion and I get some time to myself, I am usually doing one of these things. I am going to be reading a few books, starting with The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and Save Me From Myself by Brian Welch, (Korn’s former guitarist). I’ve read Welch’s book before, but I want to read it again! The Night Circus is a book that I started reading, but never got to finish. I already have these two books on hold at my local library.


I hope that anyone who is a student enjoys their free time as well as all hard-working employees who are getting some free time during the holiday season. I hope everyone gets to have a great time and enjoy themselves. While not on here, you all will now know what I will be up to!

Thanks for reading and stay stylish!

Texas Weather.

There are many interesting things in this world, but one thing that never fails to interest me is the weather in Texas. You may have heard locals and visitors agree that the weather here is definitely bi-polar and I’m here to declare that statement to be entirely and brutally true.

Earlier this week I was able to walk out of my house wearing heels, a pencil skirt, a sheer tank-top and a blazer. I was a little more dressed up than usual because my 15-18 minute PR presentation was that day and one of our requirements was to dress in business-like attire. I did not take a picture of me in this outfit unfortunately, I was so overwhelmed with all the requirements needed for the presentation and thinking about how there will not only be the class watching, but a panel of 7 judges total watching and asking questions at the very end. My class normally runs for almost 3 hours and I am not kidding when I say this, but I was at school until almost 11 p.m. on that day because of all the presentations, questions and certificates being handed out. So no picture was taken of my outfit on this day.

Tuesday was cloudy. It was cloudy, but chilly in the morning and eventually that chilly wind turned into humidity. I needed to bundle up a little bit more on this day with some tights underneath my skirt, tall suede boots, and a long sleeve top. In the middle of the day however, I wanted nothing more than to take off my tights because I got too warm.

Wednesday it started to rain and the temperature dropped down to 41 degrees. Us Texans can withstand 100 degree weather and we are used to a much warmer environment, so when it drops below 50, we are FREEZING over here. I know this temperature is not a big deal to anyone who lives up north, but to the south, it’s a bit shocking to say the least. Thursday was even colder and still rainy so I was inspired to shoot a video on what to wear on a cold and rainy day. There are 3 outfits that I filmed and I hope to get this video up early next week.

Then, just when I thought that the weather couldn’t get more cold….

San Antonio, Texas got snow on Thursday night. This image is what my backyard looked like last night when it was snowing. Here I am at 21 years old and this was my very first time experiencing snow. My family was mesmerized by the beauty and the abnormality of this happening in a city deep in south Texas. I got to kick the snow, step in it, write my name in it, look up and stick my tongue out like a kid, and my mom even threw a snowball at my back while my dad recorded it. It was the best day ever this year.


This image is one of our cars and seeing it covered in snow was pretty neat. I enjoyed seeing all the little kids and their families walk out of their homes in disbelief that it was snowing. No one saw this kind of surprise happening. The last time that it snowed in my hometown was in the 80’s, when MY parents were kids!


This is how crazy Texas weather is. In one week, I got to wear various types of outfits because of the weather. I went from wearing outfits like the one of me shown below earlier this week, to stepping outside looking like Kenny from South Park!


Here we are on Friday and most of the snow is already gone. The sun was shining when I left my house around noon and there was warmth once more in the great outdoors. Now it is the evening and it is cold, but not as cold as it was 24 hours ago.

I hope you guys enjoyed reading about what the weather has been like here in Texas and although it was shockingly cold to a lot of us, I enjoyed it the best I could because I know that anyone living in California could’ve really used this snow and rain that we got. Especially with all the fires that are happening over there and destroying a lot of homes and tourist attractions. Please take a moment and send some positive vibes or prayers there way because these fires need to be put to an end already. While we are here  bundled up or living peacefully in our homes, someone else is going through something troubling because they may lose their homes. Firefighters have endlessly fought to protect their state and it would be appreciated if any of you who have read this far will take a moment to recognize the tragedy that is occurring and send the best wishes their way.

My Thanksgiving Break and Thanksgiving Day Outfits

I have been enjoying my week off from school the best way that I can and at first, it was really hard to unwind. I am never one to procrastinate and to not think about priorities first, but I had to change my priorities from work and school and into some fun!

I’m not going to lie, I remember leaving school on Tuesday and eager to go spend some time with my girlfriends. I felt a million times better when I showed up to my friend’s house and saw my two best friends in the world relaxing and looking at some notes. These two have been in my life for a very long time and even though I couldn’t spend the other night with them due to my late PR class, I was ready to make it up to them by taking them to see Justice League.

We went to a nice theater and the first thing that caught my attention was the Gelato. I didn’t hesitate to try some samples and eventually have a serving in my possession. Oh, and we also got a large popcorn. Pretty sure I am going to see the photo that was taken by one of my friends on Facebook sooner or later!

The rest of the night was pretty laid-back. We went back to the house and watched Dancing With The Stars. I was fortunate enough to have tortellini for dinner and didn’t even have to worry about cooking anything! As much as I wanted to stay up later, I still had to report to work at 8 a.m. the next day. I was the loser who went to bed early and the loser who had to wake up by a little before 6 a.m., but I was thankful to at least have a job. My shift flew by and I soon found myself back with my friends to run some errands and prepare for our early Thanksgiving dinner.

While cooking, we watched the movie Annabelle….scariest movie I have ever seen man.

Fast-forward about 3 hours and we were finally eating! The rest of the night went by smoothly and after having so much fun, I realized that I had been way overdue for girl time. So there you have it, I am thankful for my best friends in the whole wide world. No matter how busy I get, I know where to find them when I really need them and they’ll never dismiss me.

Onto the outfits on Thanksgiving day…


This first outfit was for Thanksgiving lunch. Oh yeah, it’s not just dinner over here! Everything in this outfit is from Forever21, but the belt is from Target.

For Thanksgiving dinner, I got a little more elegant.


Before anyone asks about the skirt, it’s actually a dress! This entire outfit is from Target. The necklace is from the store, The Impeccable Pig.

I hope you all liked these outfits and if you actually read this whole blog, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.  I want to just say a big thank you for all my followers on my blog because this morning I reached 70 followers!

I am thankful for everything in this life so far and not a day goes by without me taking to time to give all that I love some recognition. You guys are the best!

Give thanks and stay stylish!
