Hayley with her mum
“I’ll never forget when my mum met her granddaughter for the first time, just minutes after my daughter was born. The look on my mum's face was one of pure joy, and her expression was so full of love. It was incredibly special having the three generations together, and I know the feeling I had in seeing that moment will stay with me for the rest of my life." – Hayley D’Onofrio, Beauty Director.
"When I was very young my mum would meet me at the school gate with a homemade chocolate milkshake. It was the perfect treat after having spent most of a hot summer's day running around the playground!” – Lulu Custance, Fashion Office Assistant.
"I have so many amazing memories with my mum, but as two women who love to shop, eat and explore galleries, our two-week trip to New York definitely rates highly!” – Natalie Mell, Fashion News Editor.
"Standing beside mum at my sister's wedding a few weeks ago and seeing her teary-eyed with pride meant so much. Angel is literally her maiden name - she gives so much back to others and the community, so it was lovely watching her get pampered and enjoying that special day with family!" - Tamara Davis, Deputy Editor.
“I remember being quite young and watching my mum get ready for work and then trying to copy her outfits. My mum has always been my biggest inspiration and best friend. I loved Saturdays most of all because my mum would take me with her to work (she owns a salon) and I would play with beauty products all day. I felt very grown-up and special.” – Arielle Tsoukatos, Digital Content Editor.
“I have a lot of great memories of my mum from my wedding, but one of the best was undoubtedly the day I chose my dress. The minute I walked out of the changeroom, my mum’s eyes lit up. It was a really special moment, made all the better by the champagne we downed in celebration afterwards!” - Kate Moffatt, Digital Content Manager.
