Hello! I am vegan and I like saving money. I know veganism can be expensive and even a little daunting when you first look into it, so I aim to find deals and savings for products and places that offer vegan options! I will mainly look at 'vegan' things like plant milks, with some accidentally vegan items.
I will go by The Vegan Society's definition of vegan, including products with palm oil and parent companies. If you don't want to buy these, fair enough :-) https://twitter.com/VeganMagpie
Hello! Popular marshmallow brand Freedom Mallows have recently launched in Sainsbury's and are currently on offer! Until 12th December you can get the mini mallows and regular vanilla mallows for £1.50! This is in store and online.
The mini mallows are particularly good in a hot chocolate (I like to heat up chocolate oatly milk as my hot choc!), so good for winter!
Hello! Bulldog skincare is currently having an offer where selected products are buy one get one free in Boots! This is in store or online. Bulldog have a range of products which are aimed more towards men, however, as a woman, I can also confirm their products are great for all! Below is a picture just to show a little idea of what products they sell.
I cannot find an end date for this offer, so it'd be worth checking online if the offer is still on before heading out to buy anything (or just shop online!).
They also have 3 for 2 mix match on Bulldog giftsets. Very nice!

With 30% off, this makes the cookbook a nice comparable price to other online retailers, especially as this has free postage when ordered from Ms Cupcake! The merchandise does have postage costs though so do consider this before ordering.

Hello! It seems the UK has fully embraced black Friday, which whilst it means an annoying amount of pop ups and adverts, can also mean it's a good time to stock up on a variety of items you use frequently!
The first I have to tell you about is The Body Shop's black Friday offer. This is a code (19806) which gives you 40% off 'hundreds' of items, as well as free delivery when you spend over £5.
NOTE: Not everything in The Body Shop is vegan, so if you're unsure, either double check this list: http://www.alienontoast.co.uk/2016/11/the-body-shop-vegan-product-list (not my list, thanks alien on toast!) or give it a miss until you can be sure.
Hello! Luxury nut cheese makers Tyne Chease have an offer running at the moment which may be good for certain festivities coming up which I won't mention again yet...
Tyne Chease are definitely premium chease makers and as such, this may not be the cheapest offer I've ever shared with you. But they are also lovely and popular, so I feel many of you would want to know about this!
For a Limited time, you can buy a trio giftset for £20.00 instead of £24.85! This features their smoked, cashew truffle and Ethiopian spice varieties. They can be frozen where they last for 3 months, otherwise they will last 1 month when refrigerated. There is postage to consider, for me in England, with just the trio giftset, it was estimated at £3.40. So I guess in a way you can consider this offer free postage plus a little off which is nice!
As another little note, they also have a lovely selection box for £18.95 which has mini 20g portions of 10 types of chease. Depending on why you would like some, this may be a more suitable option for you!
Hello! Linda McCartney is usually on an offer somewhere, however this recent offer on their sausages at Tesco is one of the better ones! Until 21/11/2017 you can get a pack of 6 of their regular sausages for just £1.00! This offer is online and in store. Now might be a good time to get a few packs if you want them ready for Christmas (I'm sorry!)
That's the only item in the range on offer this time...for now...
Hello! This post is about Boot's meal deal, where you get a sandwich, a snack and a drink for £3.39. There are two vegan sandwiches in this meal deal, including the new festive parsnip fritter one, as well as the Louisiana cajun fritter! Obviously, it is cheaper to just make a sandwich at home, but the sometimes you can't or you just don't want to.
Today I got the new sandwich, plus a quite expensive graze snack box and a drink, meaning I saved £2.05 compared to buying each item separately. There is quite a lot of choice in terms of drinks and snacks as it includes everything from flavoured water to full bottles of brands such as coca-cola or fanta (I know this brand is not for everyone, just as an example), as well as quite a few crisps and interesting nibbles such as these graze boxes (I got a dark chocolate cherry tart one with pecans, dried fruit and dark chocolate buttons in, very nice!). This is the first meal deal I've bought that actually felt worth it, plus the new sandwich is really good!
So if you need a reasonable meal deal, this is a good one to pick!
Hello! I'm here to tel you that Sainsbury's now stock Freedom Mallows!!
This is not a post about any offer on them, however it can help save you money as they are a little cheaper than elsewhere. They are being sold for £2.00 a pack with the mini mallows (mallow bites) and larger vanilla mallows being available. Often this are sold for around £2.50 a pack, so if you buy them often, this could help save a fair bit! Good for hot chocolates, baking, most things you'd want a mallow for really.
I appreciate people like to buy from independent stores, so this post may not be of interest to everyone.
Hello! Lovely still quite new Seitan joy bringer Love Seitan have an offer for this week on their half blocks of seitan! You can choose your 4 flavours from their different varieties and pay £20.00 instead of £29.90! What's more...FREE POSTAGE! Woohoo!

Groupon offer: Usually I add about checking places such as vouchercodes for extra offers on your Ocado shop. I still recommend this! However right now Groupon are also selling codes which allow you to save extra money on your shop! These go quickly, however currently you can get £40 to spend plus free 3 months delivery for £29, or £60 to spend plus free 6 months delivery for £44! This offer only appears to be available until midnight tonight!
If you haven't used Groupon before, very simply sign up, buy and pay for a voucher on the groupon site and they will email you a code which you then use on Ocado as a voucher/coupon. The value will then be taken off your shop! Just head here for Ocado Groupon vouchers: https://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/ocado-groceries-smart-pass They only have a limited number of codes to give out so often they sell quickly for places such as Ocado.
