Light. Camera. Fashion.

Meet Good Morning Texas host Alanna Sarabia, the co-host of our Best Friend Party at Kendra Scott this week. You're invited!

Good Morning Texas host Alanna Sarabia is co-hosting our Best Friend Party at Kendra Scott this week—every guest gets a $25 Uchi gift card! RSVP below to sip champagne with Alanna—but, first, get to know the television personality's local loves. 

For Girl’s Night Out you usually suggest…
Somewhere for dinner that is great for people watching. The Rustic, Moxie's and Happiest Hour are always prime places for that. 

Or, for a girl's night in, go-to show or movie.
Queer Eye, La La Land, and Marvel movie.

Fave pamper spot?
I frequent MiniLuxe for my nail needs. They give the best massages too! (And brow shaping!)

Favorite song for a spontaneous dance party?
Vivir Mi Vida- Marc Anthony. Probably the only Marc Anthony song I enjoy. It’s just so catchy! When Love Takes Over by David Guetta or Starlight by Muse. 

Best spot for cocktails with your girlfriends?
Midnight Rambler at The Joule - great speakeasy spot that's hidden in the basement of the hotel. Or Scout inside The Statler hotel - they have bowling, people.

Where do you go to catch up over coffee?
Honor Bar in Highland Park Village has a great atmosphere. I like to visit especially when it’s good patio weather.

Three words to describe your personal style?
Evolving, comfortable and unpredictable.

Best place in town for an Instagram post?
Trinity Groves has a killer view of the Dallas skyline.

How do you relieve stress?
Write it down. I sit down at my electric piano and play until I lose track of time. Or sit in silence and pray.

Best thing about your job.
What I do doesn’t feel like a job. Instead, it feels like I get to play storyteller, send people's messages and inform viewers on what’s happening in their backyard, and it just happens to be on television. I get to interview big celebrities and small. I meet local and national entertainers, singers, authors, movers and shakers, entrepreneurs, you name it, but the best part is taking those conversations deeper so that the audience can know them on a more personal level. Oh and, some of the best chefs come on the show and I get to taste their delicious creations... lol. Food!

Hardest thing about your job?
Fixing my hair ;)

Tell us some things we'd be surprised to learn about you...
I have three brothers. I advocate for animal shelters. I was Miss San Antonio and a NBA Dancer. I love long drives in silence. Skiing is my favorite thing to do EVER. I’m learning more about my faith everyday. I get weak around warm chocolate chip cookies. And if I’m not at work, the gym, or running around town, I’m likely in a movie theater with popcorn for one.

Along with the founder of The Inspried I Ashley Griffin, Alanna is co-hosting our Best Friend Party at Kendra Scott West Village. Your party favor is a $25 Uchi gift card - bring your gals!

Wed, Jan 23, 6 - 8 p.m. // Kendra Scott West Village 
RSVP for you and your bestie!
