Do you Love Sharing a Coca Cola? #CBias

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client.

Coca Cola seem to be everywhere at the minute especially as people are trying to collect a bottle with their name on (has anyone found Ashleigh by any chance as we can’t seem to find it anywhere?) so what better time is it than to show you how me and Ash share a coke on our days out and nights in together.

Ash was home early on Saturday from work as it was so hot he decided to take some flexi and instead of working till 11 came home at 6, poor guy then found I had planned to drag him to the supermarket all for a good cause of course to get working on my Collective Bias® shoppertunity.

TescoWe often end up at Tesco as it’s just so convenient and most often has all the things we need under one roof (and probably a few things we don’t need that fall into the trolley as well).

Coca ColaEverywhere we looked around the store there seemed to be offers on coke from 3 for £5 on 2 litre bottles to £1 each on 1 litre (to have a nose through all our photos pop over to my G+ and have a nose through this album).

Coca Cola Most of the time I don’t pay attention to just how big the selection of coke in our local Tesco’s is, but it has this whole area in shot dedicated to it, so much coke so little belly space!

Coca ColaAsh’s Coca Cola of choice is always the big 2 litre bottles, while I went for the more sedate glass bottles which allowed me to pop them in the fridge for a nice cold one at a later time.

Once the shopping was over ‘family time’ could start – we have always tried to dedicate time on all of Ash’s days off that is ‘us time’ sometimes it’s just lounging around on the sofa with a good movie, other times it could be time shopping or a trip to the cinema, this weekend we decided to perhaps go for our busiest one yet, but to start it off we went with a slow sedate (haha) game of Disney Monopoly.

Disney MonopolyI shall admit it – it was my choice of board, and Ash (aka Peter Pan) was in his most commonly found place jail at the time I took this picture – he seems to be forever managing to roll just enough to hit the ‘Go To Jail’ slot, though he is also adept at taking all my small change *sniffs*. One thing about us and Monopoly is we never seem to manage to finish a game – they go on for hours and we end up just going round and round with no winner in sight so after we decided it was a draw we retreated to a night of Supernatural!

Sunday brought a new day and after popping out for a while (post on that to come) we headed back home let the Guinea Pigs out in the garden and grabbed a nice cold coke each.

Coca Cola glass Bottles Coke Oh and don’t worry Sal was around to keep up company as well.

SallySpending time with my family always lifts my mood and makes me feel so much happier and content; to me it really is one of the most important parts of the week, and one I definitely couldn’t go without.

What’s your favourite way to spend time with your family?

    I always thought that Coke out of one of those glass bottles makes it taste so much better. And as always I love photos of your pup!

      There’s something lovely about watching a film on the sofa – I found it too hot to go to the cinema on Monday so we stayed at home and cranked up Blink Box lol x

    I love spending time with my family too. Movies are a nice way to spend together time. But the best is just sitting around doing nothing, having seemingly idle conversation that’s usually quite meaningful. We used to play scrabble and pictionary but that isn’t happening much these days.
    No soda though. Or hardly ever.

  4. Amy   •  

    Aww, such great photos! I was hoping you’d say that you found a bottle with your name on it! We do a lot of things with our family time–board games, evening walks, cooking and eating together. So blessed.

      That sounds lovely – we have a garden for the first time and I do love being out there :) x

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      That sounds really nice – I love it when Doc Whos on a Saturday we always gather around for that as well x

  6. Kim   •  

    We aren’t a pop (as it’s called in the United States Midwest) drinking family. :)
    Family time is me, my husband and our cat. It’s usually spent watching movies, reading (with the cat howling for attention) or picking a neighborhood in Chicago to explore. Great pictures of all the Coke!

    I’m more of a Pepsi girl when I drink soda. But yes, spending family time is so nice.

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      I think it’s nicer as a treat as it’s something special isn’t it :) x

  10. Suzi Satterfield @ Cloth Diaper Addicts   •  

    Oh, how I miss those glass bottles! When we’re having family time, though, there’s always a coke in my hand. Actually, there’s just plain always a coke in my hand. :-)

    I have an addiction to those coca cola glasses. I absolutely LOVE them

  12. mommasbacon   •  

    I am definitely a Coke over Pepsi gal! I love a Mexican (Cane sugar) coke with breakfast tacos here in Austin. You can’t go wrong there. Of course, I can’t have Coke now with gestational diabetes, but hopefully it passes so I can have the occasional treat again! I miss it!

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      Ohh that sounds nice – I’ll have to see if we can get them over here. I hope you manage to enjoy a nice one again sometime soon :) x

  13. Felicia   •  

    I suddenly feel like having a Coke, haha. I love the ones in the glass bottles. Somehow they just taste better. Either way, my favorite way to spend time with my family is watching movies together. It’s just easy for me to relax that way.

      Hope you got to have one ;). It’s a lovely way to spend time I think – you get to enjoy the time watching it then dissect it after as well lol x

  14. Virginia   •  

    Game night is always fun! Although my 5 year old gets mad when I beat her. lol Movie night is awesome as well!

  16. Kinga Regulska   •  

    I have coca cola way too often, its definitely one of my favorite drinks :)

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      I’ve never really got into ginger beer – but then as long as its cold in this weather I’ll try anything lol x

  17. Alia   •  

    I LOVE Coke, but really try hard not to indulge very often at all. We don’t keep it in our house (because it wouldn’t last!)..but I LOVE Coke! I even visited the Coke Museum when I visited Atlanta some years ago. It was great!

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      They have a coke museum ok I need to go and look around that, that would be so cool! x

  18. Rosey   •  

    I like game time too, and going places w/the fam. :)

      Oh no that doesn’t sound good at all! What do you enjoy playing instead? x

  19. My favourite way to spend time with the family is to cook and then share. Enjoying food and drink together is something really special to me, despite the fact we do so each night.
    In regards to sharing coke … my favourite are cans or glass bottle.
    Happy to spare an extra one to share but certainly not share a drop from my can or bottle LOL Something I have felt since I was a teenager ;-)

      Haha have to agree with the sharing, my can / bottle is MINE lol.

      I wish I could cook better – I can make an ok cake but that’s as far as my talents go x

      • Hussy London Housewife   •  

        Cooking and baking are two very different things. I am useless at making a cake ;-)
        Glad I am not on my own with the Coke selfishness ;-)
        Thank you Sarah

          • Hussy London Housewife   •  

            Deal ;-)
            xx

  20. Claire Appleton   •  

    Great post! There is nothing better than quality family time! We love coke in our house too, we also really enjoy playing monopoly, we’ve just bought the new electronic one :)

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      It’s great isn’t I think we could so often over look it as we have other things to do :) x
