Welcome to PinkStawberry. Glad you finally made it to our blog. I started this blog to share my ideas and inspirations. I would also like to share new ideas for life's celebrations. I love to travel, entertain and party. But most of all I love my family and friends. My life is busy with my three wonderful kids and dog Biggie. But to top it all off I am loving my life and every little precious memory is worth celebrating. I love design, interior decorating, parties, social gatherings, weddings or any other small etsy reason to get together and have fun. So..... Enjoy life Carlynn

Ebay Fashion Vault

Hmm. Strawbabies!!! The name in itself was enough for me to just get on the edge of my seat and sweat until I knew what this was all about. Apparently Ebay has a Fashion Vault. The Fashion Vault is an online auction of designer and exclusive items from designers and brands sold by exclusive people.  The auctions are only hosted by sellers who have established relationships with both the designers and brands.  Events are only held for a brief time and sell out quite quickly.  You can purchase items such as branded clothing, shoes and accessories. This was like an epic find for me. Can you believe it?  Ebay, teamed up with designers and brands now to bring you haute couture.  Yeah, I believe it and I have the proof in the pudding!!!

After revealing her marriage and recent pregnancy to the world, Tiffany Evans wanted to take some time to speak with her fans. On Sunday, July 15th she hosted an intimate Tweet & Greet/Listening Party at the World Class Event Center in Atlanta where she discussed her personal life and forthcoming EP, “Take 1.” Evan’s new entertainment company, Little Lady Entertainment, partnered with AH Entertainment, Sapphire Ink PR, Red Bull Energy Drink, My Star Access, Little Cuties Bite Size Delectables, Vitamin Water, and SEPHORA to produce “The R&B Experience.” The room was filled with fans, media, and other supportive artist that enjoyed a few exclusive tracks, including her newest single, “If You Love Me.

I had an awesome time and connected with some new bloggers and friends. Tiffany was a treat to meet. She was a very awesome person and I wish her the best with her career.

Caress Daily Silk

I know I get a little fancy sometimes but my absolute favorite of all time body wash actually comes from Walmart. It is called Caress Daily Silk.  The flavor is White Peach & Silky Orange Blossom. I learned about this body wash back in my Army days. After I came out of the field. I mean using baby wipes and being attacked by bugs and all other sorts of creatures. Including humans too. This was my relaxer and calmness in the storm. I love the smell and how it feels, I mean everyone has there all time favorites and this is just one of mines.

Barry M

Geesh, Strawbabies I found some more cute fingernail polish for the summer.  The brand is Barry M. I didn't know a thing about  them until now and what a treat!!!   Barry M is UK's #1 fashion cosmetic company. It was created in 1982 by Barry Mero. To date it has over 400 different colors. Pretty colors to be exact. I just feel in heaven to see the many colors. I ran over them, while looking at what's hot in London. I mean the Olympic games are coming up and I know a couple of my strawbabies are heading across the pond or already are permanent on the other side of the pond. So, why not attend or stay tune in style. UK style. I really slept on them and their polishes. Sooo till next time try a little nail candy and let me know what you think!

Yellow, Tangerine & Flirty Fuschia

These neon colors are definitely in too. Just plain HOTT!!!!
