Hey everyone! Well.. I can tell you one good thing about not having a facebook. I get stuff done when it comes to blogging again. Facebook has always been a huge distraction for me so maybe while its gone Ill be able to keep up with my blog posts lol. Especially since the Heat Wave Event is coming up soon and I know ill have a TON of goodies to show you then.

A few weeks ago I was approached by one of my good friends Kilolo. She came to me asking if there was anything from her store that I thought I would like to blog. I always am so excited when people come to me asking me to blog their stuff so I couldnt pass this up. After browsing her store I seen this new release which is the “Ali Mermaid Dress.” It comes in a few different colors to choose from, but my eyes went straight for the white. Im not sure if it was because it just reminded me of something very simple and chic or the fact I thought it would be a gorgeous simple wedding dress. It reminded me of something you would see a girl getting married in on a beach somewhere tropical. It just looks very lightweight and flawless to me. It took me foreverrrr to find somewhere to take the photos for this place. I even got help from my friend Allen. Finally I came across this gorgeous Wedding Venue. I loved the petals on the floor and the starfish with the candles. Its very beachy and pretty.. yet simple. Here recently Ive just been loving the simple things in life. Even when it comes to my clothing in SL. Weird for me huh? lol. Dont think this is just a wedding’ish type dress either. It comes in other colors and is very fitting for all kinds of formal occasions.  Truth came out with his hair called “Lala” right after I was sent this dress to blog and I thought it went perfect with it. A nice, cute, updo.. you can never go wrong. I paired it up with some simple jewelry and tadaaa.. a beautiful bride was born lol.

I hope you all enjoy this post :) And I hope youre having a wonderful day. Until next time..

Hello my loves! I woke up this morning to a ton of texts and questions as to what happened to my facebook. Some even thought I went as far to blocking them and that wasnt the case at all. As a lot of y’all know now my Facebook got deleted this morning. I don’t think anyone reported me, yet I could be wrong. Im not really sure. It never gave me the chance to choose from the photos or anything. My guess is that Facebook just finally after almost three years caught up with me and deleted my account due to it not being a ‘real’ person. I’ve taken all the actions that I can take to get it back. I submitted my Drivers License, but as most of you know.. my rl name is Jaden and my last name sure isnt Cordis so I’m not sure what will happen. The only thing I can bank on is the fact I do have a album of real life photos, my account says im from Kentucky and I have a Kentucky Drivers License, and the fact that my birthday is the same.

All of this leaves me very sad.. mostly because Ive always tried my hardest to be kind to everyone and make people smile at random moments when I knew they felt as though they couldn’t. What makes me sad is the fact a lot of the people Ive seen this happen to are good people. People who dont try to hurt anyone and doesn’t use Facebook as a way of being malicious to others. Yet.. the ones that do.. they seem to still be around. Makes absolutely no sense to me. Now not only is my Facebook gone, but all my memories are gone with it. Yeah sure I could just create a new account.. put my photos up that I still have on my computer on there and start fresh. It wont have the memories on it like my old one did. The laughs, conversations, photos, smiles, all my videos I would randomly upload, my rl photos.. all of that is gone. Pictures I can upload again.. but ill never be able to recover those memories I had on there. Not only is my Facebook gone but also my facebook like page I used for this blog. It makes me feel as though my blog will plummet if I dont have a way of facebook to share my links. Now if I didnt have sponsors I wouldnt care.. but I feel as though since I do have these amazing sponsors I should be able to share these links on fb to reach more ppl. Then again I dont know.. some bloggers have flickr and no facebook and that works right?

With all that being said.. Im not really sure if I will make another facebook account. Although.. its been 6 hours and Im already like “what the crap am I gonna do with my time now that I spent on facebook?” Haha. Sad when this happens you think like that. I just used Facebook as a way to talk to everyone and keep in touch with them. I barely talk to anyone on Second Life anymore, most of it is done through messages on facebook. I did however create a account on Avatar this morning. Which is basically a SL version of Facebook. Im not sure if anyone is on it but I am on there. Im not really sure if Ill even keep it going to be honest. I might just use it for my blog posts.

Im just confused right now. Maybe this is a blessing? Maybe? Im not sure. Blah.. I was complaining about recently on my Time Hop that it was showing me things from this time last year I could care less to see. Maybe this was Gods way of saying “Nope.. thats enough Jaden. Ill no longer allow you to see these things and be reminded of the hurt.” *shrugs* I dont know.. Maybe this is my way of being told I need a break from the facebook part of SL. Sometimes I think we get wrapped up in the petty drama on our fb and it takes the fun out of what Second Life was before everyone kept in touch 24/7. Maybe this will help me get back to what it used to be and find fun in it again.

I just wanted to let yall know I have done everything I can do to recover my page. Im just not sure if its going to work or not. And as for my sponsors.. Im still going to be blogging they just wont be shared on facebook and will only be shared on flickr for now. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Hopefully Ill be back before long.. and I may even make a new facebook page at some point. I just dont know when that will be.

Yall have a good week and Ill see ya soon <3

Afternoon Yall.! <3

While taking the photos for this outfit last night I had the hardest time finding a beach to do it on. At first I wanted a waterfall scene and I found one, did the photos and then realized while editing them that it just looked so shitty lol. Then I decided to find another beach. Finally found one I liked and what do I do? Instead of taking the pictures with some kinda scene in the back ground I just said screw it and jumped in the water. After changing the windlight settings about a hundred different times, I decided on this one. I loved just the simplicity of it. Nothing flashy.. no big sunset, no big fluffy clouds.. just me and the water. I thought it was rather fitting with this post because Im not showing off much. Just me in a bikini with some water on me and wet hair lol. I mean.. when youre in the pool or ocean or even a lake thats basically what you look like right? lol.

Anywho onto the outfit.. this is a bikini from Twenty13. It came in three different options to choose from. One was very patriotic, another was very rainbow and colorful. Then this was the watermelon look and I loved the pink with the polka dots so I chose it. The hair is from Lamb and was available at C88 last round.  Im sure they have put it in the store by now, but if they havent more than likely it will be there sooner rather than later. There is a lot of ‘wet’ hair looks out right now, Im not sure if they were going for that look with this hair, but to me it looks kinda wet.. dont’cha think? lol.

Anyways I hope you enjoy this post! And always until next time..

Hello Beautiful People! <3
Last night I had an absolutely amazing conversation with someone. It gave me that hope I was needing. It showed me not to give up on stuff. It made me believe in so much again. Showed me that sometimes people are brought into your life at just the right time when you least expect it, but its those people…they are the ones who will stay with you a lifetime. Showed me that sometimes even we don’t give ourselves enough credit and that sometimes even when we think we see and know our worth.. to others when they describe your worth and how they see you.. its so heartwarming and sometimes emotional. I know Ive made a lot of mistakes in my 27 years of life but all Ive ever wanted out of life was that when people think of me or talk about me they say “Yes.. I know Jaden.. shes an amazing friend. Shes MY friend.” I try my hardest to stay true to people and always be kind. To listen when someone needs a shoulder to cry on or just a friend to laugh with. I try my hardest to give the best advice I can give to someone. I keep promises, and secrets, and sometimes I may be brutally honest in the end its only because I love and care about them so much. If I care about you, you know it because I put 110% effort into our friendship. Sometimes in life I believe we take a lot of things for granted.. be it friendships, our partner.. family.. we take those people for granted because we believe they will never leave us. All I want to say is.. dont. Dont take those people for granted, dont take your family for granted because you never know when you will wake up and they wont be there. Dont take friendships for granted because those people are our chosen family. The ones brought into our life for a reason. Those people are the ones that help us through our darkest days, the ones who hold our hand and guide us, showing that there is in fact light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes you just need a little patience walking there and no one wants to walk that road alone. Dont be one of those evil, malicious people who when youre walking that path.. you look to your side and you see no one standing beside you. I want you to be able to look at your side and see the ones who care about you the most. You dont have to have a 20, 30, 40 friends walking beside you. All you need is a couple who will be there to pick you up when you fall, dusting you off saying “cmon.. just a little bit further.. you got this.” And when you cant walk anymore they pick you up and carry you. Those people are once in a lifetime type people. Those people are the ones thats the hardest to come by these days, but those people are the ones you hold onto the longest and dont let go of. Those people are the ones you dont betray, dont hurt, always love. Those people are the ones who matter the most. I for one can say I am absolutely hands down one of the luckiest girls in the world. Actually.. Ill go ahead and say I AM the luckiest girl in the world because I know when I look to my side I have a few pretty extraordinary people walking beside me. They are honest, kind, loving, trustworthy. I want you to be able to say “No.. IM the luckiest, Jaden… not you.” because thats what friendships should feel like. Everyone should feel the luckiest because you are. If you have those kind of people in your life you ARE the luckiest because those people are SO hard to come by. All in all I just want to say that right now even though times may be hard, situations in your life may be really difficult you will always get through them with good people by your side. You can never get through them alone. Dont think you can. Ive been that person, Ive been the one who thought I needed to lie on the ground by myself and cry and cry thinking that the next day it would be better, when really I just fall asleep to wake up even more depressed than I was the day before. Ive been there, I know.. I know what rock bottom feels like. Everyone’s rock bottom is different from the next persons. Your lowest low you may think is lower than someone elses, but its not. Were all battling our own demons in this world. So just be kind to one another. Sometimes the smallest gesture leaves the biggest impact on people. Sometimes its exactly what they needed at that exact moment. It might not seem like much to you, but you just reaching out could might possibly save them. Be a good friend, be a good lover, be a good person and the world will shine just a little bit brighter because youre here. Be that one in a million someone was looking for. Being on Second Life I see so much hostility and hatred for one another and its really depressing to me. Now Im not a saint and im not saying I havent had my fair share of words with people, but why? Why do we do this? This is Second Life and I dont care how much you want to say your real life is so amazing that you just had to get a second one. No.. no that is not why we are here.. we all are here because it was probably boredom in the beginning.. something kept us here though. Were all battling our own problems and demons in our real life or we wouldnt continue to stick around. Then we meet incredible people who we can relate to and it seems as though everything for those few seconds in the world is fine. We get lost and forget about how crappy our work day was because we have these amazing friends to lean on. Be one of those amazing friends.. be kind and loving and be that person that whenever someone sees you sign in they get excited and they want to spend time just around you because you light up a room. Ive said this once before and Ill say it again. Second Life can be the most lonely place on the planet if youre alone.. but you dont have to be in a relationship to make it incredible. Surrounding yourself with loving friends make it amazing. And without friends to help us get by each day what do we have left? Second Life is our escape from reality. When things get rough you can sign in and be, do, or go practically anywhere you want to. Wanna go to the Grand Canyon? They have it. Want to spend a night in Vegas, Hawaii, Cali, New York, Hawaii? You can do all those things and it can be so much fun if you have the right people around you. Just be the best you that I know you can be. I know Second Life isnt full of rainbows and puppies all the time, its extremely hard to find someone you can trust 100%. Ive met my fair share of just evil people and that makes me sad. Evil people who have something going on in real life so they get on second life to take it out on others, evil people who think they are better than everyone else and find a need to throw it in your face all the time. Evil people who pretend to be something or someone they arent and mess with your emotions on so many levels. Evil people who continue for years to try and make someones life just absolute hell by cyber bullying them to the point they just want life to end. Evil people who act like they care and with a smiling face listen but have that knife behind their back just waiting for you to turn. Evil people who take advantage of your kindness and have no conscience screwing you over in the end. I dont understand that at all. Why do you want to be someone like that? These are all things Ive seen in Second Life. Things Ive witnessed or heard with my own ears. Why on earth would you want to be remembered as someone like that? It really breaks my heart. All in all this post is just me venting about friendship and how others see you. And how much I know you can shine even if youre a little reserved, sometimes you just need to let your hair down and go with it. Sometimes I know we give up on hope because so many people let us down. We give up on hope for humanity, love, being happy. Its hard, I know.. like Ive said Ive been there. Last nights conversation with a friend was such an eye opener for me. What sticks with people is how you make them feel when they are around you. How much you make them laugh, or be it the simple things like just spending quality time with you not even saying a word. The smallest gestures.. the random hugs or kisses. Those things stick with people and if youre the best you that you can be… well then you will never be alone. The best thing about Second Life is you dont have to be the prettiest, the skinniest, the fastest, the strongest.. or even the bravest to be the best you, you can be to someone else. No one cares about the outside appearance of you. Its the inside they see, they talk to, they laugh with. Thats what matter and thats what people will remember about you. Ill leave you with this.. The human spirit is not measured by the size of the act, but by the size of the heart. That really is bittersweet, isnt it?

 

Also.. today would have been my grandpa’s birthday if he were still alive. I dedicate this post to him because I would like to thank he’s very proud of the person I have become. Happy Birthday, Pap! I love you and miss you more than words could say. I know youre probably having an amazing birthday in heaven. I hope youre spending it fishing with my other grandpa and grandma. Tell them I love and miss them both too. ♥
