Farewell to my Blogger

It's not like I have been regularly posting here anyway. Well, whatever. Anyway, I have been slowly working my way back to the world of blogging, vlogging, social media, and a few other online other endeavors. With that said, I am permanently saying farewell to my blogger . . . TRUE URBAN QUEEN. Please visit me at my new home . . .

The 3 Things I Need to do - Starting Now

I have been stuck. Like a jeep in a ditch of mud. And not just stuck for a day or two. This has been going on for quite a minute now. And I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. I have had enough of spinning my wheels and going no where. So, I had to come up with a list of things I need to do to propel myself forward. In this post, I will share the top 3 with you. 1. Get out of my own head: I am buried in my thoughts. Sometimes, I wake up with my head already filled and racing with my, "what are you doing" thoughts. Like, I tell myself that I am going to accomplish this and in less than 30 seconds, I have filled my head with haze and confusion. Thoughts from being alone to being too old. From being (fill in blank) to being (fill in the blank). My planned counter actions are to wake up every morning say a prayer, list the things I am grateful for, do yoga, and meditate. Throughout the day, as I find myself being drawn into my head, I will pause, inhale, release, and

I am an Awesome Planner

Yes, I am a creative and awesome event planner. That is confidence, my friend, not ego. However, this post is not about planning an event. I have become one of those 'planner people'. You know the type. A planner/calendar, some stickers, colored pens, and even, washi tape. Now, I have always been a person who likes to write everything down. Even in this day and age of cellphones, I am a die hard pen to paper to-do list maker, appointments written on calendar, and mental note to written notes type of woman. So, I have always keep some sort of planner/calendar in my purse. Yet, I was always unsatisfied and looking for something better. A different writing system. Then I read about keeping a bullet journal. A bullet journal, for those who are unfamiliar, is a combination of keeping a planner with dates and a journal for thoughts. That is the best short description I can give. If you go on Youtube and type "bullet journal" in the search bar, you will see exactl

Have You Met Reina?

If you follow me on Instagram @trueurbanqueen then you already know who Reina is. She is the mannequin that stands in my living room. That's right my living room. You should make your space your own and in my home she reps my creativity, love of fashion, and fabulousness (No spell check that is a word). I also, have a purple wall and curtains but that is for another post on another day. Anyway, once a month I change Reina's outfit. Last year, each month, I posted her outfits on Instagram. This year I haven't. Not sure why, she has been stuntin'. HAHA. Also, last year, I dressed her to complement the month we were in. So, last year in July 2016 she wore this: This year, I am doing something different. I am using 2 yards of fabric and without sewing, I am creating 12 different looks. Same fabric each and every month. Her outfit for July 2017 looked this way: Just a fun way to decorate my home, show my personality, and get creative. What are some ways that you

Sharon M Rainey on Youtube

That's how you find me. Sharon M Rainey on youtube . I have dabbled with Youtube on and off. And once again, I am on again. This time instead of rambling - even if it was only a few videos- I am going to focus on what I do. Events, crafting, and sewing. My goal is to eventually get a better camera for recording and some lighting to fix the lighting issues. However, they say start with what you got and just begin. So, I am. Again. I plan on on sharing the videos where I create something here on the blog. That way I can pin (Pinterest) the photos. Well, that's all I got. Do you create videos on Youtube? The video I am sharing in this post is the intro to my channel video.

Consistency and Creativity: Let's Take a Tour

I have decided that besides being more consistent blogging here, I am going to start sharing more posts on my creative side. So, that means I will be sharing my hopes, dreams, goals, business plans, business lessons, and business growth. As well as my crafting, sewing, and decorating projects. Plus, factor in inspiration and motivation posts. This all means (in a nutshell), I will be sharing a whole lotta bunch of awesome stuff. And what better way to kickoff my "once again I am going to be consistent and blog three days a week" pledge than to share photos on my new home office/sewing room/crafting space.

Where Did Queen in Heels Go?

Hola. Hello. How is it going? I am going to use this post to answer a question. The question that I have been asked quite a few times by quite a few folks. "Why did you take Queen in Heels down?"
