My Favorite Beauty Products

I absolutely love these products. I use these everyday!!!

My products

Mary Kay Make-Up Remover
This Make-Up Remover takes everything off so smoothly and without much effort. Just dab some on a cotton ball and start removing.  I promise you will adore the results. Your makeup will not be smeared over your face but removed!

Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Sweet Nectar
This lipstick is my favorite. It is creamy and the color doesn't really fade after application

Secret Scent Expressions in So Very Summerberry
This is my favorite flavor So Very Summerberry. You know I have to stay so fresh and clean I'm always on the go. I never worry about my deodrant not working and it has a berry type smell.

Hard Candy Walk The Line Liquid Eyeliner
This eyeliner comes in many different shades but I use the black. It stays on basically until you take it off. It is smooth and easy to apply.

L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes
This is the best mascara I have ever used. This mascara does not clump up in the bottle or on your lashes. It also makes your lashes look so full. I would recommend this to being your next bottle of mascara , you won't be disappointed.

This body butter Be Seduced by Victoria Secret speaks for itself. Its seduces. Yum

I know lately you've heard me say "strawbabies" and I know you are probably thinking well what exactly is that.

Well it's quite simple!

Strawbabies n. These are PinkStrawberries number one supporters. They are the beast behind PinkStrawberry. 
ex. PinkStrawberry loves her strawbabies!

Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum by Viktor & Rolf

Launched in 2005, Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum is a floral explosion, a profusion of flowers that has the power to make everything seem more positive.
Viktor&Rolf designed a bottle cut like a multi-faceted diamond for their fragrance. A symbol of the dream. It contains magical powers capable of harbouring the secrets of those wearing it.
Full-bodied and opulent, the Eau de Parfum explodes in a bouquet of sensations with its addictive floral notes which leave their trail, like a whirlwind that is distinctly couture. A millefleurs around the freesia, Centifolia rose, osmanthus and Sambac jasmine, supported by a background of patchouli.

I love Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf  this is my all time favorite. I bought some around Christmas time 2011 and I must say then it was sold out the only place I could find it was at the Lenox Mall in Sephoria. Big ups to Sephoria because they always have everything you need. I love Sephoria. Anyway, I know you get the point. But strawbabies when I tell you this perfume is O MY GOODNESS!!!!

I love everything about this fragrance even the commercials. They are soooo cute!!!!!!

I know you are excited because I was!! Give your self a treat go splurge a little on yourself. You won't regret it I promise I get soo many compliments when I wear this fragrance.

Head on over to and tell me exactly what you think about this fragrance strawbabies!!!

GOOD DEEDS by: Tyler Perry

Last night was the opening night for Good Deeds. Another impressive movie by Tyler Perry. I am a long time fan of Tyler Perry.  I went to the opening night of Good Deeds and I must say the movies I went to  was packed. First of all, I went to the 10:15pm showing. I bought the tickets at 5pm. I showed up at 9pm to get a nice seat. I must say that I was still like number 40 in line. While I was waiting in line at 9pm I saw the line start to wrap around. I got good seats but for those that came at 9:30 I'm pretty sure they rescheduled. The theater was packed.

The lady beside me in the movie must have cried the whole time. That really bothered me. I know that alot of people out here are having hard times. I understand that wholeheartedly but I must say I am soo blessed to not have experience many of the things that people have been through.I also am blessed to know my father in heaven that is a true provider and shield. He gives me all of my needs and honestly majority of my wants. He positions me to achieve and I grasp hold and climb through those windows and doors he opens for me. With that being said, strawbabies NO MATTER HOW HARD IT IS OR YOU THINK IT IS LOOK TO THE SKY, BOW DOWN AND TALK TO HIM. HE IS A GREAT LISTENER AND HEARER.

I sometimes go thru a typical day and count my blessings and smile because around 9am i loose count because I have received so much when I sometimes give so little. I get so overwhelmed at the thought of a starving child, a homeless mother and child. It also bothers me even more when I know those people have family that won't even lift a finger to help. Its sad and like she said in the movie SHAME ON YOU.  My family has always had my back, my friends alike  and  even if my family had nothing to give or help they made a way for me and mines. That's family and that's the things they do and you should too.

Arm Candy

I love Arm Candy. I actually have tons of arm candy. I looked arm candy up on the web. The meaning of arm candy is drum roll please!!!

arm candy. n. Slang. An attractive person who accompanies another to public gatherings but is not romantically involved with that person.

What!! O my goodness that is NOT my definition of arm candy. PinkStrawberry's definition of arm candy!!

arm candy. n. Slang. Bracelets of all sorts and shapes that make your arm look soo sweet almost eatable.

Examples of Arm Candy:

                                                                  Juicy Couture
                                                         Disney Charm UK
New Trend for HipHop

Chanel with Bling

Nicki Minaj arm candy

Nicki Minaj

The Square Bling

The Gold Cuff

It's always so fun to go out and find the perfect arm candy. The perfect candy could set your total outfit off. If it's the right candy some people will transition from your wear and zoom in on your arm.

A Beautiful Mess EP Brunch Hosted by Bryan Michael Cox

I recently had the opportunity to meet Torica. I was invited to "A Beautiful Mess" EP Album Release Brunch hosted by Grammy Award winning producer Bryan Michael Cox held in the Shula's Grill at the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead. I had an opportunity to preview tracks for her upcoming album. I must say I was truly impressed.  As you know I love my strawbabies and I love keeping you informed.  If you haven't heard of  Torica, I must say you are truly missing a treat. Let me introduce you to Torica.

Torica Cornelius, known simply as Torica, is a singer/songwriter born and raised in Columbia,
SC. As a child, Torica spent years nurturing her passion for writing and singing, while developing
the ability to capture the attention of others through her personality and voice. 
After spending weeks on the Billboard charts & receiving her first RIAA Gold certification, Torica went on to perform on national stages, like Jimmy Kimmel Live & Soul Train. You couldn't turn on MTV, BET, or VH1 without hearing thecatchy radio single or seeing the music video. It's very few people who can say they are Grammy-Nominated without ever having a record deal, but Torica can. She began to
emerge as a songwriter, penning songs for Snoop Dogg, Polow Da Don, Rick Ross, Jazze
Pha, and many more of music's biggest names.
Torica is currently prepping the February release of her new EP, A Beautiful Mess. She is on a mission to let the whole world hear her music.
