Easy-Peasy Winter Soup feat. Butternut Pumpkin, Sweet Potato & Carrot



Winter is finally here! And while it's still all bright blue skies and sunshine where we are, the temperature has started to drop and there's nothing more satisfying than hot homemade soup on a cold winter's night.

My favourite thing about making your own soup is it's pretty much fail proof. Take this recipe for example, I googled a few standard pumpkin soup recipes to look for tasty flavour pairings, threw it together in about an hour totally winging it and the first time was a complete hit! It was so tasty and easy I thought I'd share it here with you guys :)

In part 2 I've grouped together the cooler toned purples and blues out of my batch of goodies. All these shades have either a blue or sea green or purple base and most have a gorgeous duochrome shift.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics Haul - First Impressions & Swatches Part 1 - Warm Purples

A while back I hauled the Aussie indie makeup site Femme Fatal Cosmetics. Then life happened and the ridiculous amount of swatches I needed to do got put on the procrastination pile lol.

But I finally got the time to swatch these babies for you guys and give you my thoughts/first impressions. As this was a haul, I ended up buying 20 mini eyeshadows plus I received 6 samples, so I've broken this into 3 posts to get through them all!
