Even though we know moms deserve to be celebrated and recognized every single day of the year, we especially like to pamper them around Mother’s Day. To help you make the mom in your life feel extra special this year, we’ve partnered with L'Oréal Paris for a luxe Mother’s Day Giveaway.

From now until May 1, 2019, enter to win the ultimate Mother’s Day gift — a fully stocked beauty package containing a L'Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Shampoo, EverPure Moisture Conditioner, Rosy Tone Face Moisturizer, Rosy Tone Eye Brightener, Voluminous Mascara and a Colour Riche Lipstick. In addition to giving away all of that product to three lucky winners, two grand-prize winners will also receive a $75 gift card to purchase flowers for Mom — just don’t forgot the card and get ready for the tears!

Need some inspo for what to say? Ahead, our editors shared what they love most about their mom and the responses will really have you feeling the love.


Dawn, Senior Editorial Director

Through every up and down, my mom is a rock. She’s honestly the strongest person I’ve ever met — whether she’s dealing with something in her own life or helping one of her kids get through something on their own. Need a pep talk to get out of a rut? Call my mom.    

Lindsey, Content Director

Between my mother and my mother-in-law, I’ve been blessed with two incredible mom figures in my life. I admire my mother’s tenacity and refusal to give up no matter how hard the circumstances and my mother-in-law’s ability to take on any task with ease. They are some of the strongest women I’ve ever met and have given me the best examples to follow when it comes to raising my own kid.

Marisa, Associate Editor

My mom is the most loving person in the world and thus, she’s taught me to love with all my heart, too. She can’t go more than two hours without reminding me and my dad how much she loves us, which is adorable but also, for the sake of transparency, slightly weird at times (sorry, Mom).

Alanna, Associate Editor

I admire my mom's wisdom and keen intuition — she always knows what's up and is a prophet in her own right. She’s taught me to look at the world with perspective, to always push myself to my maximum potential, and she works harder than anyone I know. Hopefully one day I’ll hold a crystal ball with as much tact as she does, but for now, I’m so lucky to have her to lean on.

Tembe, Associate Editor

My mom has always been my biggest champion and has never been afraid to do her own thing. To say she’s led by example is an understatement — and I’m comfortable in my skin because she taught me to see myself as beautiful, worthy and capable from the start.

Jessica, Assistant Editor

My mom brings so much joy to everyone around her and I think that’s my favorite thing about her. It’s rare to see her not smiling — especially when she’s surrounded by her family — and the simplest of things make her so incredibly happy. Her laugh is infectious, and she never takes herself too seriously, which is something I strive to emulate.

Jillian, Social Media Editor

Ever since I was a kid, my mom always encouraged me to be myself and try new things. She’s never been afraid to take risks, and I’ve carried that same gumption with me my entire life. If it wasn’t for her instilling that confidence in me, I’d be a totally different person. I couldn’t be more grateful to have that influence in my life.
