Lighthouse-Cinema-Wellington-1

For our latest date night we went on a trip to the movies (and let’s be honest – it doesn’t get much better than that!) My quirky city is home to a whole bunch of independent cinemas, and you know what? I’ve never been to any of them! …really not the best effort for living in Wellington for almost 3 years -_-)

I wish I could say that I’ve finally remedied this, but sadly no. We showed up to this beautiful cinema (the Light House, if you’re wondering), took some snaps, before heading inside to watch Spectre… And then we found out that it started half an hour ago! Never one to be deterred, we popped to the supermarket to grab some popcorn then ventured home to rewatch Pacific Rim – my all time favourite movie!

Despite our semi-unsuccessful cinema trip this was the perfect time to put my DAILIES TOTAL1 contact lenses to the test. I was staring at the screen for a whopping two hours – in between handfuls of popcorn, obviously, and i found that the contacts worked brilliantly! No dry eyes, no excessive blinking, which means my eyes were happy. And let’s be honest, happy eyes equals a happy, happy Jo.

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 atwww.morecontacttime.com

  1. You should definitely go back to the Lighthouse Cuba, it’s a nice little cinema. I also live in Wellington and I have a suggestion for a colourful shooting location. The Council has just repainted the steps on Masons Lane (off Lambton Quay) in three cheerful shades of green. Check it out! Keep up the good work with the blog.

    • Thanks HEAPS for the heads up! I used to live on the Terrace (good ol’ uni days) so used to go up the steps pretty often. I’m yet to see their makeover though – I suppose that’s a mission for the weekend! :) x
