Roxy-Cinema-Wellington-1

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).
