Random Post: Motivation And Losing Weight.

Hello there!
I was sat staring at the telly, all alone as Toms at work, and bored. So thought why not write a blog post? Trouble was I hadn't prepared anything and hadn't taken any photos of my products yet.. then I realized that the whole reason I started a blog in the first place was because I wanted somewhere to share anything and everything. Even if I was writing for the hell of it!
I'm afraid this is a abit of a random, moans and groans post! 
First thing that seems to be pissing me off is my motivation levels. Does anyone else want to do so much, and has so much to do, but you can never seem to muster the energy to do it, and instead you just sit there staring at the telly all doing sweet FA!? Yeah. That's me.
This seems to be slowly ruling my life and I need to stop this before it really starts, but I don't know how. If any of you guys have any suggestions please get in touch!
Secondly, I cannot seem to stick to this diet. Or any kind of workout routine. Its really bugging me because I would love to lose about a stone in weight and completely tone up, and I just cant seem to stick it. I'm thinking of joining a slimming world group as there's one setting up right near me... anyone have any feedback on slimming world? From what I cant gather people seem to get results with it. The reason I'm thinking about joining a specific group is that then perhaps I will become more motivated and more determined if I know I've got like a weigh in every week or whenever. I dunnoooo... I need guidance and advice!
I'm really sorry at such a random moany post but I just needed to get it out, and who knows! Maybe even writing this will help me get back into perspective. Here's hoping.

Review: Nivea Express Hydration Primer

Nivea Daily Essentials Express Hydration Primer - £5.00
Hiya Guys!
Back with a review for you now, of something that has been around for a little while now (and I did actually purchase when it first came out so the pictures aren't true to how much I've used now!).
This product really interested me when I first saw it as for one, its a primer, and I've never used a primer before, and two, because it is also a moisturiser for dry and sensitive skin - which is me! And for £5.00 for these two things I couldn't really not say no.
I'm glad I did as I have now used it all up, and thought it was a lovely product, as with all of Nivea's products
(I'm a bit of a fan!), however I'm not entirely sure of its primer-qualities. I didn't particularly feel that it help made my make up stay on any longer than normal, and seeing as I've never used a primer before, I couldn't really tell that I was using one then.
On the other hand, I felt it was a great moisturiser, and was absolutely lovely to use in the hot weather we've been having, as it felt like a cool gel, rather than a cream. It did seem to do a good job at keeping my dry skin at bay.
On the whole I'd give this product a 6/10. It was a good moisturiser, but seeing as I wanted a primer really I'm not sure if I'd buy it again.

Update: I know its been a while!

Well jeez Louise, it's been a heck of a long time since I sat an wrote anything on this blog.
I'm not going to sit and apologise and ramble on about where I've been and why I haven't blogged in a life time. I guess things just all got to hectic and when push came to shove, this was the last thing on my mind. 
So, after pondering and pondering and signing in, I realized when reading everyone else's posts, and seeing all the great YouTube videos, that I do really miss doing it. I decided to get a blog in the first place to have a somewhere to write about anything and everything, weather or not anyone reads it. Also to do with the fact that I like reading about beauty bits and bobs, and getting ideas and sharing things with other people, and that's the reason I want to start a fresh.
I really want to learn a lot more about the technical side of things to do with blogging, for example, how to create a better looking blog, something I'm proud of. The same also goes for my YouTube channel too.
I'm also starting a diet, and keep fit program in my life at the moment, as I've just become to unhappy about the way I look. I think restarting my blog will help me maintain that too!  
Those are my goals, and hopefully this time I will achieve them.
But that's my little opener before normal blogging resumes :)
