Acorn Squash Soup YUM YUM YUM!!!

 A yummy low carb dish that is easy to  make and will satisfy your hunger! I stumbled upon this wonderful vegetable in a lovely gift basket, and didn't know what to do with it. So it just sat on my table lol just today i decided to try and cook it, I've heard of squash soup  so i took to Google to look for a recipe.

Two Squash, 1 stick of butter, 2 onions and 1 packet of Goya chicken bullon
 I Set my oven to 350 and started to cut my squash into halves and removing the seeds.

After cutting one onion in half i took one half and cut it into four. Adding them into my squash halves with a tab of butter and half a garlic clove in each. I seasoned with salt and black pepper.
Let roast for an hour
I have a cup of tea as my squash is roasting in the oven at 350. The last ten minutes i dice the rest of my onion and one whole

 and added them to a medium pot with a stick of butter and let them glaze for ten minutes then added my chicken broth

As that is simmering i take my squash out the oven letting it cool

 . I removed the skin by taking my spoon and running it around the sides and just scooping out the squash.

I added the squash to the pot and took my stick blender and blended  until smooth.

My soup was amazing the squash has a nutty taste to it a little sweet naturally Very savory.
I added some crushed red pepper and some sour cream delicious!!! I hope you try this out you'll love it.

L.A. Girl pro HD Concealer swatches !

So i picked up a few things I've been wanting to try out. I searched for reviews on these products from Youtube to blogs and couldn't find a decent one, so alas i make my own. 
 I'm going to break this haul down into different posts starting with the concealer so this won't be one super long post.
Concealer, primer, lipstick OH MY! lol

Lets start with L.A. Girl Pro HD concealer I picked up five shades of this awesome product. This concealer is amazing it's a complete dupe for Makeup Forever's HD concealer for less then a fraction of the price WOW!

Left to right: Warm sand, Toffee, Creamy Beige, Warm honey and Fawn.
Smudged to show coverage and consistency.
 The consistency of this concealer is impeccable definitely full  coverage, Blends like a dream  and once it sets it doesn't budge! A little goes a long way. 
The applicator is not the best 
The only con to this incredible product is the applicator. Not my favorite thing at all it just seems unsanitary to me. The brush is attached  to the tube so once you use it make sure to get all the product off the brush before closing .

I think this is five bucks of glory if you haven't tried this product yet give it a go you'll love it! Just click here > Pro-Conceal . 
Let me know your pro's and con's on this concealer ,or if you have a better dupe!
