When the World feels Unbearable…

Today was one of those days. You know those days that feel exhausting. Not so much physically, but emotionally and mentally draining. Yeah, those.  Between reading articles of children being separated from the parents at the border and seeing a horrible video of a young man’s lifeless body, I had to find some way to retreat from the woes of this world. I know that everyone’s coping mechanisms are different but if you’re in need of a little help inRead more

It’s Our Blogiversary!!

Today is special to me. Not just because its Tuesday (which is great) but because it’s June 5th.  Four years ago today, I published my first blog post here on Queen to Queens. In that post, I wrote: “This blog was named ‘From Queen to Queens’ because my middle name, ‘Raanee’ means queen, and I believe that all women are queens in their own right. Everything I post is coming from my heart, to all of you.” It’s been a longRead more

My Fave Looks from the Met Gala

  The Met Gala is an annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Each year, the Gala incorporates a theme that attendees can follow for their wardrobe looks. (just think of it as a big and expensive Halloween party for celebrities) This year’s theme was, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”. Attendees used the theme to bring their own interpretations to life and below are some of my favorite looks from this year’s Met.Read more

Practicing the Pause

You may have noticed that the month of April was pretty slow for me. I didn’t post a blog entry, I barely posted on Youtube, and I wasn’t as active on my social media platforms. My birthday was last month and for some reason I felt different about this one. I didn’t have a big party and I didn’t go out because I wanted the opportunity to practice the pause. Life is happening all around us but in the times thatRead more

Monday Motivation: Just START

Happy Monday! Today, I’m dropping some knowledge on you from a king of comedy, Steve Harvey.
