A Vegansaurus Giveaway: Tofu, cookbook, and THE MOST AMAZING SHORTS EVER! »
So, last week, we were invited to The Plant Cafe to enjoy a delightful lunch prepared by Nasoya and Kim Barnouin of Skinny Bitch*. The lunch was to celebrate Nasoya’s unleashing of its new website, Nasoya’s Tofu U. It’s actually super-adorable, and aimed at making tofu cooler, which frankly, tofu needs. Tofu is the Urkel to Bacon’s The Fonz. Does that make sense? Anyway, it’s totally rad and adorable so check it out!
NOW, for the exciting part! We’ve giving away a Nasoya gift pack that includes a copy of Kim’s JUST-released Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook; three coupons for free Nasoya products; a you-won’t-be-embarrassed-to-wear-it American Apparel Tofu U t-shirt, a Tofu U rucksac (best word ever), and most importantly: THESE AMAZING SHORTS WHICH CAN BE WORN SERIOUSLY OR IRONICALLY AND ARE 100 percent MIND-BLOWING AWESOMENESS:
So if you wanted to go as Lt. Dangle for Halloween, you wouldn’t have to buy a costume because GIRRRRL, those shorts are ALL you need! If that pair of shorts were a man, I’d already be pregnant KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING. NEITHER DO I.
For a chance to win all this awesome shit, let me know what you’re gonna be for Halloween. Or your favorite fatty bitch recipe. Or a number between 1 and 2 million. WHATEVER! I’ll pick the winner with random.org anyway! Contest ends, let’s say, next Tuesday, Oct. 26. Okay, good luck!!
*As we all know, I am ill pleased with the whole Skinny Bitch thing, but Kim’s cookbook is good, with lots of healthy recipes and beautiful pictures. Also, when I asked Kim about Skinny Bitch being so super fucking gross she said that she knows you don’t have to be skinny to be healthy and that it’s a marketing thing and she’s moving toward a Healthy Bitch brand which I think is rad SO YEAH THAT’S MY STORY.
Le Canot Rouge Giveaway! WIN SOME AWESOME SHIT RIGHT NOW! »
Le Canot Rouge is the super-fucking-cutest stationery ever, featuring designed and created by a lovely vegan lady named Laura (CAN I GET A WHAT-WHAT FOR HOT VEGANS NAMED LAURA??). It launched at the National Stationery Show in May, where it was really well received, and the store known for everything insanely adorable and adorably insane, Anthropologie, picked it up. Go on vegan stationery company making it happen with the bigwigs!
Laura describes her designs thusly:
The stationery features charming animals of the woods that I’ve anthropomorphized-–not wearing clothes or anything, ‘cause that would just be silly, but doing things like riding a bicycle, carrying an umbrella, or using a rescue ring. The intention is to, in a gentle, quirky way, allow people to realize that animals have their own lives, and should have their freedom, choices and rights without us humans bestowing these upon them at our choosing (or not).
So as not to damage the very ideas I want to support, Le Canot Rouge prints exclusively on process-chlorine-free, Forest Stewardship Council-certified, 100 percent post-consumer recycled-fibre paper because the medium IS the message. The paper manufacturer purchases enough Green-e certified Renewable Energy Certificates to match 100 percent of the electricity used in its operations.
And the reason for launching Le Canot Rouge? So I can help make a change: 10 percent of Le Canot Rouge’s gross sales (rather than some watered-down ‘net’ business) is donated to animal welfare causes.
So cute and awesome and responsible and wonderful! I want to make out with that other Laura. I’ll tape it and it’ll be like watching Inception but the porn version. BOOM CHICKA WOW WOW (how do you type that?).
ANYWAY, your Vegansaurus and Le Canot Rouge is giving away a complete set of the animals to one lucky winner. VERY AWESOME.
TO WIN, you must do TWO (really really easy) THINGS:
1) fan their page on Facebook (the website will be up and running soon! but not yet!) AND THEN:
2) comment here and say that you favorited their page. EASY-PEASY. If you don’t have Facebook, it’s okay! You can still comment below to win because we love you like that.
A winner will be chosen at random* next Friday, Sept. 17.
*FULL DISCLOSURE: I will choose the person I find most attractive. Note to self, MAKE SURE TO ENTER!
LAURA M IS THE WINNER! Girlfriend, email me and I’ll get you your shirt!
It’s a Vegansaurus giveaway, y’all!!!!
It’s a saucy red t-shirt in a women’s large (but this is American Apparel large so think, about a size 00). I got this as a gift but it doesn’t fit and I’m not planning on losing a full person anytime soon so MY REFUSING TO LOSE IS YOUR GAIN. If you’re a big fat fatty too (or a dude) (or a big fat fatty dude), you could totally cut this up and wear it as bra top or patch on your jeans or as an loincloth. Whatever, you’re gonna love it.
For a chance to win, put your age in the comment field. If you don’t know it, just put a number. ANY NUMBER. Winner will be chosen sometime next week and it’ll be totally random unless my bestie enters and then she’s totally winning. AT LEAST I DON’T LIE TO YOU!!
p.s. the shirt doesn’t smell like smoke or dog. TOO MUCH. I kid, it’s clean. ish.
Wednesday Giveaway: get $50 of FREE supplements and groceries from iHerb! »
Tune out the iTablet/iPad/iWhatever that Apple is sending everyone in a tizzy over today, and win $50 of free stuff from iHerb! And no, iHerb isn’t an online medical marijuana delivery service, you big stoner; it’s a discount supplements retailer that sells practically everything. Every brand you can think of, like Now Foods and Twinlabs, and even some of the more obscure items, like vegan glucosamine. Best of all, they have fast shipping, so if you live in California, their free ground shipping will get your supplies in two days at the most.
I went over to Whole Foods to compare prices, because let’s face it, not all of us are lucky enough to have awesome co-ops like Rainbow nearby, and that sometimes means Randian nutjob John
Galt Mackey gets our money. (I’m a Rainbow loyalist myself, but there’s only one Rainbow and a zillion Whole Foods.) Sure enough, iHerb was cheaper by an average of 20% on the supplements I compared. My usual Twinlab B12 dots were $19.49 at Whole Foods, $10.24 at iHerb.
iHerb also has a secret grocery section with baking ingredients from brands like Bob’s Red Mill and Arrowhead Mills. So if you do a lot of baking, you can load up on supplies once, then reorder everything again as a standing order once you’re about to run out. I’d love to see iHerb set up an automatic subscription like Amazon’s Subscribe and Save, but this will do in the meantime.
But none of that really matters because listen up: you’re going to get $50 of free stuff from them just by answering a ridiculous contest question, which I am just now thinking up. OK, here goes. All you have to do is post the answer to this question:
In the movie The Stöned Age, what kind of car do Joe and Hubbs drive?
Then I’ll pick someone at random who answered correctly. And yes it’s pot-themed because it’s iHERB, get it?? I’m just killing myself with the dad jokes over here. Go ahead and cheat by looking at IMDb, I won’t know the difference, and you’ll impress everyone with your encyclopedic knowledge of mid-’90s coming-of-age cinema.
You can also get another $5 off by checking out with coupon code BUY123. So even if you don’t win, use that same coupon at checkout and save $5 anyway! Fuck yeah free stuff!
Thursday Giveaway, Sluts: Matt and Nat Bag! It’s CLOSED, SLUTS! Marisa is the winner! Great name, hot chick, win win win! STAY TUNED FOR MORE CONTESTS & SHIZ! »
It’s a back-to-school giveaway, bitches! This brand-new, large-and-in-charge (it’s 14” by 14” with a 6.5” shoulder strap!), fancy-ass Matt and Nat “Big Drop” Bag is perfect for lugging books to class, or putting all your shit in for overnights (slut!). This bag is marketed toward women, but we’re not about boxes here at Vegansaurus so go on, girl. Er, “girl.” This bitch retails for like $175 so even if you hate it, you can sell it on eBay. Depression 2.0, people. Let’s GET RICH OR DIE TRYING.
From the official Matt and Nat description (so it’s all sales-y):
Contrast stitching, brushed metal accents and a boxy shape give the Big Drop from Matt and Nat its distinctive style. Great for work or weekend shopping trips, this roomy bag is made of all-vegan materials and features a durable man-made body, dual front exterior pockets, and a convenient zipper closure.
TO WIN, type your name in the comments. We’ll pick a winner randomly soon…it’ll probably be the name I like the best or the person I find most sexually attractive. Or we’ll use random.org. Whatevs. So leave a comment now or never know the glory of a stylish vegan bag and be doomed to wander the aisles of Payless alone for the rest of your days, knowing that you have aligned yourself with Star Jones, which is totally fucked. Does that sentence even work? Not sure, don’t care. Good luck!
