It's 2020 Counting Down To 2021

 Hi there,

You know that I am thinking to myself, how are you doing? I ask myself did I let go or did you? I couldn't continue to write for some years due to the changes I experienced now I know and understand you experienced changes too. Is it our fault? This is the question every human on earth is asking themselves. Along with why did some countries recover faster than the United States. As the ball bounces on 2021 what will you be doing?

This is what I am recommending. Don't know if it will help.

1.  A breath of reality. Step outside and wall around at least once a day. See that the world still exist.

2. Do your normal activities as best you can. If you meditate, do this. If you exercise, do this. Don't let the "Stay Home Stay Safe" order stop you from living your life. Don't let fear overtake you. 

3. It is important to have a happy and healthy mental and physical state of being within yourself. Maintain yourself and your health my keeping your daily routine and a healthy state of mind.

4. This New Years Eve, and holiday plan out your activities even if your staying home. If your staying home than plan different activities for yourself. Read, Write, Self Care, Watch a good movie, plan a bend watching tv moment or movies. Pre-order or make yourself a delicious dinner. Save your money and treat yourself like your important. The truth is you are the most important person in your life to yourself, it's true you have to be important to yourself. You are suppose to care about yourself. If you don't who will? You don't have to feel sorry for yourself. 

5. I understand that everything is different. Doesn't mean you are not loved. People still care about you and want to know how your doing. So stay in touch. If you are going out just double check your plan's and leave your itinerary with someone who can check to make sure your doing okay. It's always important to have people in your life, that make sure you are doing okay.

The streaming election should be over by now and the President of the United States elected into his/her position. I know really understand what that will do for our country and what a broken stream looks life. In the planet world a stream that is blocked or broken runs into another stream or river, making a new path. Who determines the way a stream flows on earth. Many factors. Therefore, I conclude that what ever happens with the "Presidential Election" had many factors, greater than one person.

What has happened to wedding, meeting and event planners is the reality that venues are fighting for their own planners to have business and make income for the venue. Blocking independent event planners made sense. However, it doesn't make money sense. Everyone scrambled to save their own business.





I reopened the boutique part of my business in the hopes of still having a business and not have to rely on government money. If you know one anyone shopping for jewelry for their event, I'd appreciate your referral to our website. It they don't see what they want, have them send me a photograph and I will try to locate something similar.  http://mkpurediamondevents.com

 Wishing you the best for 2021. Happy New Year!

5 Star Hotel Vs AirBNB






On what do I choose? I was recently asked this question? My reply, what is important to you? How intimate do you want to get with the location your staying in. 

There are several things to be aware of when traveling.



  1. Know where you are traveling to and why?
  2. When you know what you want to see stick to your itenary. Although locals may tempt you to walk off and do your own thing, not travel agencies do not recommend this for safety reasons.
  3. Do your homework , or research. Know what cities State, countries your visiting and for what reasons. Check their visitors website for things to visit.

Now what is the difference between a five star hotel and an air BNB.
Ask yourself; Do you like to float or be on solid ground? It's a lifestyle choice. Are you adventurous or not? Are you about meeting people or not? High risk taker or low risk taker?

  1. Most likely an air BNB is a owned and operated by the people who own the property. They may allow you to use their kitchen and grounds, they may not. Sometimes it is part of the house like a bedroom you rent out.
  2. Hotels 5 star hotels have their grounds well out mapped out. They usually have security on the property. The rooms are designed for the purpose of renting for a night or two or more.
  3. The airBNB might have been a residential estate and the owners decided to rent the rooms out when they need money.
  4. 5 Star Hotels have specific amenities. They provide a professional concierge who can help you with any or all travel arrangements. They know people who will help the days travel made easy, comfortable and safe.



Whatever, one chooses the goal is always to travel and return safely. Be sure to check with a reputable travel agency. There is now a magazine named Airbnb for those that prefer this way of travel. It's pretty interesting read and for this writer. I believe it's a lifestyle choice you'll have to make.

Cyber Security Check Up Time


Many things have changed in the world. Making sure you know the latest is important to business business Security and your personal overall safety.

Did you know that meeting and event planners have to know and understand many things one of them is cyber security and our security workshop is coming up therefore, I thought I'd share some security tips I've learned.

1. Have one credit card where all your on-line payments are billed to. Don't use that card for anything else. Don't link it to another accounts. This will help you know the minute a one hacks into your account. 

2. Keep passwords in a safe place.

3. Unsure of someone, have to take a Taxi, Uber, Lift and your in a strange town. Photograph the car and Driver and email to a safe person. Most of the time these things are just fine. Incase your safe person has information and will act appreciately. Personal safety.

4. In Business for yourself? Make sure you have the appropriate software in your business location. Have the place inspection for anything that can carode your software or hardware. leaking roof, building electronics, entrance, security.

5. Have a safe place for all your paperwork. The important thing is that you have it backed up. If you have it backed up on memory cards or cd than make sure your computer can still operate the softwares. Otherwise you need a paper version.

That's it for my thoughts. As always personal safety matters. Like, subscribe, tell a friend. Disclaimer on contact page.

Honor in Defeat? Is there?

Hi there,

The battle is over. I am defined. 911 lets say...like New York. That how it feels. Truly I say to you, no bible or man can heal the wounds of this woman. I have tried many distractions. Blogging. Writing has always been a form of therapy for me and I love expressing myself through word. Here is my last story. Will it make a living for me as my children hoped. I doubt it now. Since 2003 I have been posting on this blogspot.com. First as MK Productions Meeting and Event Planning Services then as MK Pure Diamond Events and Diamond Glamor Girls my favorite gossip. I also had two other ones while I worked at a hotel in Carlsbad, CA. Men Get Wed, Woman Get Wed.  Today was the final hit. I have to admit defeat. My divorce was finalized. Oh my! God zero. Big fat $0 admited defeat!

Here’s an account of events I have never shared, leading to this day. The Lord hates divorce and I believe this is true. More he hates evil.

I love what I do and if your a woman, you know balancing a growing family and aging parent is difficult working two employments to help with things is even more difficult. However, the income helped pay the expenses of two growing children and they helped by picking some of my household responsibilities. They also at the age of 18 become employees.

In 2009, two friends called and asked for employment. Remember the old saying never mix business and friendship that’s true. The first friend I was able to help through her divorce and abuse from her husband. She needed money. My husband and I helped her start a new life.

The other friend by a mutual preacher. Asked for employment. I didn’t have any to give, so I made the mistake of inviting to a couple of conference so he could meet others who would help him he claimed he was a AV person. My business employees AV people we don't keep them on payroll. I introduced him around. -n the hopes he'd find employment. One in San Diego no luck for him then one in Los Angeles. I was sexually harrassed (now this will go to count maybe) Due to the fact he won’t stop. I had to advice the police in three counties. He still drives by. I have now been advised by an attorney to peruse civil matter in court.

This lead to divorce. Under medical care trying to stop him. My thought was if I told the therapist and doctors what he was doing they could help. In trying to help me my oldest child Dustin Kamon died in 2014. Still my ex and I tried to stop the lies online. To no avail. .y preacher tried. It left me without enough funds to support myself so I moved in with my mom and her husband. Yes I say her husband because I was already married when she called me and said I got married. Therefore, once your parent surprises you with getting married, he's just her husband. Vegas wedding.

With that being said my children both tried to stop the constant lies online and internet. Since that has not worked and all he wants is for me to be worked so others can make money. My attorney has advised me to stop all social medica for a while. It’s not making me a living anyway. Therefore, it is with much regret to inform you. I will no longer be posting on this account and due to this man following me I have to close my social media for a while. Yes, I mean following me in real time.  As of a few days ago he did it again as I got off the fwy.

It is against the law to stock, follow a woman or sexually harass her on-line for self pleasure work her for money in a form of slavery. To all those that follow. Thank you for your support. I regret the advice of my children on how to make a living on line didn’t work. God bless and remember no matter what happens in your life. God is good all the time.

John 8:32 then they shall know and the truth shall set you free.

I was asked why I always use words from the Bible:Here is my best answer.

When a child is born male or female. The do not know. It is the responsibility of the parents to teach.   Roman's 15:6  For them to learn sovereign, for the person of: one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Have you heard the song and I don't know the name of it. God is Sovereign, Sovereignty of God. The lyrics "baby, your Sovereign..." .That is the battle. Many do not want to acknowledge the voice of God within. It is supposed to be to help the person, become better. Not make them pay for someone else's sins! Jesus Christ already did that for all of us. Therefore, we can live an individual life knowing that Jesus Christ already paid for all my sins. Making humans a sinner saved by grace. 

This offends some. That why we as humans are called to forgive. That is why we are called to humanity.

Not The Usual Blog



Hi there, Reader;

I was thinking about all the employments I have had through out my my life time. I started working when I was 12 or 13 years old. I wanted extra money for some things and my parents didn’t think I should have it. I asked them if I find employment and get paid can I have it? I found this magazine with all types of things for sale. I wrote the owner of the magazine and asked him if I could try selling some items. He said, yes. That started my skills as an entrepreneur. I walked door to door in my neighborhood sold what I could. I sold items to friend and family and managed to save up for whatever it was I wanted. I don’t remember the item it was. It was the fact that I could do it without asking my parents for money.  Once I earned the money I needed I just stop selling.

Prior to that I had gone to the local pharmacy and deli to see if they would hire and employ me. They respectfully declined stating the laws of the state wouldn’t allow them to hire child labor laws. I quickly went to school and remember asking my teacher if they would allow me extra time in the library. He gave me extra credit if I wrote a paper about it. Growing up biligual English and Spainish I would always mess up on the grammar and I hated writing. However, I was looking up information and I thought I would why not. Child labor laws, I was shocked to find out what it meant and how people take advantage of children. That started my career and ended up being part of my major in college. Who knew that studying the abuse of children in the past would lead to a fofilling life as a director of children’s program. Opening up several schools for private industry as well as church affiliations.

One simple thing in childhood can influence a discover and love that is unexpected, rewarding and challenging. This has lead to a love of writing ( I shared this story in another blog.)  As I got older and learned the difference between writing a paper for school and writing for an audience. I discover the words we write don’t always sound the same to others. That’s what writing the schools newsletter taught. I had parents, who would always ask me questions. What do you mean? Are you tring to say this or that. Sometimes I would say, No I am trying to say exactly what I wrote. Other times I saw their point of view. Either way through the discussing of my writing I become more confident in who I am. What does that have to do with meeting and event planning. I have written a blog on this platform since 2003. The first one was under the name of MK Productions Meeting and Event Planning. Not until recently have I thought about what I have learned throughout  the years I have learned. It all started with receiving an email from another blogger about making money at blogging.

In five years of blogging time she has surpassed my earnings as a teacher, event planner and blogger. She is now teaching other how to blog and selling her knowledge for a price.  Do I covet that ability. I would be a liar if I didn’t say yes. Multiple streams of income. I read. I knew of affiliate programs and how they worked however some how my blogs just didn’t make enough sales. I know I can sale things with my logo and print things and sell them. I just keep thinking. To some degree. Blogging has been a way of expressing what I learned. Now here are these bloggers telling other bloggers. Look at me I’m making more money than you. Please don’t misunderstand me. I usually make fun of people I respect and am all for them leading me to greener times. Does this mean it is time to change my blog. Blogging style? That is what I am asking you, the reader. Without you there is no blog. No story to tell. No one to help no one to hear my stories....read my stories. Do I write about how to make money blogging? Do I keep on keeping on?

Fragrance



Hi there,

It’s that time of the year when all the men are thinking what do I get. What do I do? Should I ask the secretary or personal assistant to purchase that one gift that only I should be purchasing. Then the flip  side is she isn’t my mother so why should I purchase or acknowledge her in anyway.  I laugh at that thought, mainly I would have to say there isn’t a married woman that doesn’t think of herself as her husbands mom. Not literally, however if your married long enough there is at least one moment in time the person married to you has become your mom to help you succeed. That’s love.

If you don’t believe me here are some sample:

  1. You didn’t want to go to work and wanted to take a what I call a mental health day. You didn’t want you boss to know so you asked your wife to call work for you.
  2. You didn’t want to visit mom for a holiday, blamed the wife, kids or family. She heard you didn’t argue and carried the blame for you.
  3. You asked her not to do something, it reminds you of mom. Bad childhood memories.
  4. You asked her to massage your neck and shoulders after work. They hurt and your stressed out. You taught her exactly what you like stating that’s how mom did it.
  5. You like your cloths in a certain way or the laundry folded a certain way. She does it why? It pleases you.  Why? That’s how mom did it.
  6. She makes certain recipes that are just like mom made. However, she never makes it good enough. You just don’t want to be married to mom.
  7. The coffee in the morning has to be a certain brand. Breakfast placed a certain way. That’s just what you grew up with.
  8. You don’t want her or anyone else to know how much the smells of childhood bring back memories you love. This might be mom.
Therefore, this year as I was thinking what to purchase my own mother I went on a hunt for the scent of my youth. I would smell her frangrence when I was a child. Not a hug or a touch just when she walked by. I would think that’s mom. I walked into the fragrance department and thought. How lovely it smelled. Like flowers, feminist, style and elegance. It was definitely a day for men to be shopping for all the sales people smelled of fragrance from spraying it all day. 

I thought to myself. Do my own children remember my frangrence? Does my husband? Now my ex. If he does this is the time for me to use it. Just joking. I enjoy the thought that when you plan weddings one of the most thought about moments is what will the frangrence be. If too strong it will overwhelm the guest if too little it will go unnoticed. Therefore, I say to all husbands, sons, lovers, boyfriends purchase your girl a fragrance that will forever remind you of each other. For there is one thing we know in the world, love saves. Even if you din’t have the best wife, mother or lover, the frangrence will serve as an alarm and you can rung. Just joking! It really is a way of showing how much you care.

A Wedding Planning Session



I plan weddings. I plan meetings! I plan event! I do love what I do! What is it that honors a man? God? What is pleasing? What is good? We are good in our own eyes, however is good, good?

Years ago my sister wanted me to plan her children's weddings. I prayed, thought, pondered and because I run a business I asked her how much she w*s willing to pay me. She then explain she wanted it for free. At that point I respectfully declined which angered her.

Here is the thing. If it cost $35, OOO est.to plan a wedding times three. Honestly I couldn't afford it. Her and her husband needed to be willing to pay for her own children's wedding. I offered advice, however that wasn't good enough. She wanted free things. Decor venue, food. I can't afford it, I said. Items to start their household. The anger grew more intense and that's when I learn driving with the cell phone on isn't a good thing. I'd receive angry phone calls. Stressed out mother of the bride or groom yelling at me to give her things. Cell phones today let people know their driving. I wish there was a button you could turn the phone off and still use the other apps. Like music and maps.

What I think is most important is parents understand it is their responsibility to pay for their children's wedding. No one else unless they offer. The event planner doesn't ask grandma for money for or aunty Flo. We have a contract with the parents of the bride or the bride and groom. That is usually the  case. The couple about to get married  if they are responsible enough to desire to get married they are responsible enough to pay the vendors they want to plan it. We don't have an abundance of free items to give you for your wedding , event. We have them when our vendors give them to us. Then we pass it forward. 

Here is what I recommend. Take time and figure out some goals or dates you want things to happen. How much money you want to spend. How much money you can afford from each paycheck. Then you have the beginning of your budget. Life lessons are difficult sometimes, take time to learn them. If I would of had the money and all the free things she wanted I would have given it to her. I didn't.

What is it Opera says: " you do the best you can with what you know. When you know better you do better."

Can't afford a wedding planner? I have a new service I'm providing . You can purchase an hour, thirty minutes or even fifteen mintues and we can Skype, Google chat or whatever way we pre-arrange on your appointment day. Charges apply. Visit website and book appointment today.
