International Rabbit day is a fabulous occasion that everyone should embrace, and I mean everyone, because Rabbits are so frikkin adorable.
The purpose of such a day is to promote the protection and care of Rabbits, both domestic and wild alike and to reflect on how we can look after these beautiful little bunnies. Thousands are subject to animal testing and having their coats used as fashion accessories, in this day and age we’re firm believers that this needs to be stopped.
So please take some time today to reflect on these joyous little bundles of fluff and think about all that they bring to our lives…Where would we be without the Easter bunny I ask? Eggless is the answer. We’d have no chocolaty goodness delivered to us on the special occasion of Easter, just think about that for a moment will you.
Here are some charities to check out if you love Rabbits as much as us.
Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund
Fairly Beloved Rabbit Care – Adopt single or bonded pairs of Rabbits
Fat Fluffs – Another adoption website based in Henley in Arden
If you’re not convinced about how awesome they actually are, here are some fluffy facts that are sure to change your mind

Whenever a global sporting event is held in your backyard it’s hard to not get caught up in some of the excitement…well unless you absolutely HATE sport – in which case you won’t even be reading this! So for those of you who are and can’t wait for the Rugby World Cup 2015 to kick off, whether a hardcore fan or a newbie (like me) here’s our bite-size-easy-to-digest guide to who’s playing, where and when!
As everyone knows by now, this evening Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will become the longest reigning monarch, overtaking the incredible Queen Victoria who is her great great grandmother. Through turbulent times our Queen has stayed Steadfast, Constant and Dutiful – words used by the BBC to describe her. Although a large portion of her kingdom is believed to no longer support the Royal Family, a survey conducted by Sky showed that actually 70% of her kingdom does still love and support them, a great figure in our view! In times where the world sometimes seems to be falling apart, they are what keep our country real and grounded, if we lost them I fear the whole country could perhaps fall apart. In the words of Queen Elizabeth II herself “Whatever life throws at us, our individual responses will be all the stronger for working together and sharing the load” hear hear maam!
So to celebrate I (the PR girl/ absolute lover of the Queen) pick out some favourite photos of Her Majesty to celebrate and share what I absolute adore about her and why I am so incredibly happy to be celebrating the longest reign today.

Today is Read a Book Day, a day to celebrate all things book-related. Whether you’re an avid reader or not, this day is the perfect excuse to pick up a book and read. It doesn’t even have to be a novel! There’s plenty of fascinating non-fiction out there, from history books to biographies. According to a survey last year, 84% of Brits have books in our homes and these days many of us read eBooks via our smartphones or tablets. All of which is very good news, as reading is supposed to make us happier and more empathetic!
Pancakes are for life, not just for Shrive Tuesday, they are easy to make for quick breakfasts, great for small meals or a light snack, fantastic after working out (especially our banana pancakes below) and lastly they are scummy as a dessert! But are you a coeliac or gluten-intolerant and sigh when everyone around you starts raving on about pancakes? Well, stop right there, and turn that frown upside! Just because you can’t eat gluten or dairy, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy one of the best loved foods of our nation, here at FMAG there are a few of us who are gluten, dairy and sugar free so in honour of the Bake Off celebrating intolerances we are sharing our favourite pancakes recipes!
We know, we know, when you’re a kid all those ‘Back to School’ signs in shops would always put a dampener on your ‘woohoooo we’re free for the summer’ moods – especially when you’d see them barely a week into your summer holidays!

We’ve got some cool things for students of all ages, whether you’re going back to school or off to University! Oh and we’ve also included a few things for parents sighing in relief at getting back to normality!
