“When I properly grow up I want to be just like my mum,” says the 27-year-old. “But even if I’m half as good and as much fun as her, I’ll be delighted!”

And yesterday Jennifer gave her mum, Karen a sneak preview of the Mother’s Day event she’s hosting at intu Braehead.

Along with fashion guru, Julie Hannah and the mall’s personal shopper, Victoria Martin, Jennifer will present Ladies Day Out, on Saturday, March 25 and Sunday, March 26, between noon and 5pm.

Julie and Victoria will be sharing their expertise on creating the perfect capsule wardrobe, showing off the latest spring and summer outfits along with make-up demonstrations from top brands, including Benefit and over six sessions each day.

The free event takes place in the lower mall outside Boots store and early birds who reserve their seat online have the chance to win a Ladies Day Out Goodie Bag at the noon, 2.30pm and 4pm shows.

Jennifer describes how her mum has influenced her life: “My mum is pretty much my go-to person when I don’t know what to do. She’s one of my best friends and we get on really well.

“She always gives great advice, very understanding, but also straight-talking and encouraging.
“After I received my law degree I decided I wanted to go into media instead of becoming a lawyer and my mum understood that I was following my passion.
“It was quite a scary option because at the time, I didn’t know how it would all work out for me.
“But my mum supported and encouraged me all the way and she was right because it has worked out well for me so far.”

Jennifer added: “We should be nice to our mums every day of the year, but it’s nice to have a special day for mums. After all, they’ve spent every day looking after sons and daughters.”

Marketing manager at intu Braehead, Christine Macdonald said: “We’re not just celebrating Mother’s Day on one-day but all weekend.

“Our Ladies Day out is a great way of giving your mum a special treat by bringing her along to find out the latest in fashion and make-up trends.”

Log on to www.intu.co.uk/braehead <http://www.intu.co.uj/braehead>  to book your place at the Ladies Day Out.

Wilma’s on the Rockies after winning intu contest

WILMA Annan is feeling on top of the world after her dream of visiting The Rockies in Canada just came true.

Wilma Annan after receiving her Win Your Dream Award.

Now there will be plenty mountains high enough for the cleaning supervisor at intu Braehead after she swept to victory in a national competition for staff run by the centre’s owners.

The 67-year-old from Hunterhill, in Paisley, was voted tops by intu in their Win Your Dream initiative, which is open to thousands of staff working in all the company’s 14 shopping centres throughout the UK.

The initiative celebrates employees across intu who have gone above and beyond to deliver the intu brand promise of making people smile, whether to intu’s 35 million customers, its tenants and members of the public.

Wilma won her £10,000 dream trip to Canada – where she will also visit nieces she hasn’t seen in 13 years, in Toronto.

She said: “I’ve always wanted to go on tour in The Canadian Rockies after I’d seen the fantastic scenery on television and in movies, but I thought I would never have been able to afford it.
“It will also be great seeing my nieces again after so long.”

Every year staff at intu are asked to write down what their dream prize would be if they won a quarterly award worth £1000 and also what their big wish would be if they go on to win the national Win Your Dream prize worth £10,000.

Staff are nominated by colleagues for going the extra mile in their jobs and each centre has a monthly prize of a £50 intu Gift Card with the winner qualifying for the national quarterly prize.  The quarterly prizewinner then goes on to compete in the national Win Your Dream title.

Wilma travelled to London for the finalists’ lunch at The Savoy hosted by intu’s top executives, and she admits she couldn’t believe it when her name was announced as the national winner.

Wilma said: “I was flabbergasted, but I was over the moon and for once, I was lost for words.
“It’s great that the company are rewarding staff with the fabulous prizes in the Win Your Dream competition. I don’t know of any other company doing anything as big as this.”

Wilma had already won a trip to Benidorm she had chosen as her dream prize in the quarterly round of the competition.

Gary Turnbull, intu Braehead’s general manager said: “Wilma has been one of the unsung heroes at intu Braehead and she’s been here for more than 17 years since the centre opened in 1999.
“We’re delighted that Wilma’s dedication to her job and to our shoppers has now been recognised. The Win Your Dream contest is just one way the company shows how much they appreciate their staff.
“She might be heading for The Rockies, but Wilma is one of the rocks that the foundation of our success is built on.”
