The Week That Was… Cherry Coke, Ikea, Washi Tape and Reese’s

January 18, 2013

It has been a flurry of activity here this past week, we’ve been out at some point every day – even yesterday’s yucky temperature day of 41 degrees. Yuck. So here are a few photos to share today.

Cherry CokeForgot to share this with you last week – over Christmas I made a discovery… Cherry Coke Zero in Australia! Yippee! This is one of my favourite treats and loved being able to have it when in the States last year. I have seen it in Coles and Woolies and it’s a Limited Edition so get some if you want to!

Santa Train

Santa JarPopped into Target and found a Christmas aisle with marked down goodies. The above Santa Train was filled with a huge bag of marshmallows which were gluten free, got that for $2.88. The Santa is very cute and I plan on re using him every year and he was $1.88.


IkeaWe also went to Ikea – love going there.

Ikea Living RoomI love the look of this displayed ‘living room’

Ikea Kitchenand the matching ‘kitchen’. Just gorgeous!

Ikea CoffeeI also love that I can have a coffee for free as I am an Ikea Family member. Anyone can join!

Washing UpOur dishwasher blew up during the week, so annoying! The upside is Little Man (who is 7) is happy to wash the dishes… wonder how long that will last for.


Post BoxI also got myself a Post Box… well it’s exciting for me.


Fresh FoodLove the colours of fresh fruit and veg


SAMSUNGHaircut time


Wasabi Tape on USBIf you house is like ours, we have usb drives all over the place. I wanted to think of a way to ‘name’ them so one, we knew who’s it was and two, we knew what was on it. I had seen washi tape on other items all over pinterest so I thought maybe washi tape would work… and it does! Just write on it with a pen (I used a fine point permanent marker but I am sure a pen would work?) You can get washi tape from stationary/crafty stores. (saw some in Typo and Big W)

Mini Reesesand to finish the week… look what I spotted at Woolworths! Bags of Miniature Reese’s and Hershey’s – yum! This bag was $3.98.

Thanks for reading, hope you’ve had a great week.

Little note as usual: I was not asked or paid to mention any product here, even Ikea – I just love the place!

    I love the sales after Christmas & other events. You can pick up stuff for next to nothing sometimes.

      I admit I am always keeping my eyes peeled for such bargains, hope you got some good bargains yourself.

    Sounds like a fun (and successful) week. We had lunch at IKEA the other day and I thought of you when Amy & I shared the most amazing gluten free dessert :-).
