Hip, Hop, Hooray! The second most wonderful time of the year is here! For those of us who have given things up for Lent, the struggle is nearly over, and the time for gorging is upon us! If you’re looking to eat as much chocolate as one person can physically manage in one day (as I am) FMAG have got the best tips around, to help you in your quest for consumption!

The girlies here at Find Me A Gift would love to say we rule the roost at our headquarters, I’m sure the men would argue but we do really!
We always feel empowered on International Women’s Day, but why? Why don’t we feel empowered all the time? We are women, we are amazing, our bodies are incredible, our minds are capable of incredible things, and our hearts can withstand being mothers. So, we should always feel empowered, and we need to shout about it more often, even if we feel bulldozed at times, taken for granted or undermined, we should stand up and say “Hey I am a woman and I am frickin incredible!!”
So, we asked a few of our wonderful women at Find Me A Gift who empowers them and why? It certainly helped us to realise how amazing we all are, so hopefully reading this will help you feel fabulous about yourself too!
I’ll start… by day I’m a PR butterfly by night and weekend I’m a crazy mountain biker, it’s a hobby I took up with my partner Tom, who I regularly kick the ass of I hasten to add! But I get it; men staring at me while I’m covered in mud and sweat on my bike, they look as if I shouldn’t be there, well where should I be instead? I compete in long distance cross country rides and I NEVER have to queue for the ladies’ loo at the start, but all the men queue for ages – I mean where else do you see that? We ALWAYS have to queue, this just shows that although women’s cycling is growing it is still a male dominated sport. I have men riding at me, taking me out downhill and then almost falling off their bikes when I pass them on a climb! What do I have to do to prove I should be there? Anyway, why do I put myself through 100km rides? Because it’s an adventure, I get to go places and see sites that not many would bother climbing up to see, I get to be in nature for hours at a time and often won’t see a car for hours, I also feel great – strong and fit.
Therefore, my super hero woman of the moment is Anna McNuff! Chosen by Rhian.
It’s Mother’s Day! And we’re all getting mushy about our mums at FMAG HQ. We thought this would be a good time to have a think about our favourite mums of the animal kingdom (and looking at cute animal pictures just happens to be a massive bonus!).
