It really, really doesn’t take much encouragement for me to expose my inner nerd – especially when it comes to Lord of the Rings. Gosh I love Lord of the Rings (way to live up to the New Zealand stereotype, Jo!) So you wouldn’t believe how excited I was to go to the Roxy – an art deco style cinema which has been lovingly fixed up over the last few years by Sir Peter Jackson himself. And if that’s not enough, there is a giant statue of Gandalf lurking right outside – *squee!*

I was pretty busy the entire day – totally taking advantage of the cheap Christmas bus fares and zipping from one side of town to the other. By the time we decided on a place for dinner (a super cute fish, chip & burger shop next to the ocean) the sun was beginning to set. I wore my DAILIES TOTAL1 lenses and had nothing but a positive experience. My eyes felt good; I wasn’t blinking too much, and my vision didn’t fog up – even though it was a particularly long day (am I the only one who can’r sleep this time of year? Christmas is just way, way too exciting).

This post was in collaboration with DAILIES TOTAL1, but (of course!) all opinions were my own. If you want to purchase the contact lenses head into your nearest optometrist for a fitting. Or alternatively you can find out more information at www.morecontacttime.com
