Transcript

1
00:00:00,360 --> 00:00:03,300
- I love being a mom, obviously.

2
00:00:03,300 --> 00:00:05,420
But sometimes it's really hard.

3
00:00:05,420 --> 00:00:07,380
So, today's episode is all about

4
00:00:07,380 --> 00:00:09,160
making your life a little bit easier

5
00:00:09,160 --> 00:00:11,840
and helping you save money in the process.

6
00:00:11,840 --> 00:00:14,757
(electronic music)

7
00:00:25,640 --> 00:00:29,380
All right, moms, we know that
you are CEO of your household,

8
00:00:29,380 --> 00:00:31,040
and you make so many decisions.

9
00:00:31,040 --> 00:00:33,060
And some of you, I would consider,

10
00:00:33,060 --> 00:00:35,150
you're the banker of the household, right?

11
00:00:35,150 --> 00:00:36,950
Like, you do all the money stuff.

12
00:00:36,950 --> 00:00:38,370
So, in this episode,
we're going to talk about

13
00:00:38,370 --> 00:00:41,240
creative ways to save money
in your everyday life.

14
00:00:41,240 --> 00:00:42,770
Paula Faris is stopping by

15
00:00:42,770 --> 00:00:45,200
to talk things all working mom.

16
00:00:45,200 --> 00:00:47,140
And for all you women watching,

17
00:00:47,140 --> 00:00:48,390
I partnered with Women's Day

18
00:00:48,390 --> 00:00:50,730
to talk about some really
great beauty products

19
00:00:50,730 --> 00:00:52,830
that you can buy at drug stores for

20
00:00:52,830 --> 00:00:55,060
really inexpensively. It's great.

21
00:00:55,060 --> 00:00:56,600
Now, whether you're a stay-at-home

22
00:00:56,600 --> 00:00:58,300
or you work outside the home,

23
00:00:58,300 --> 00:01:01,100
we are all working moms.

24
00:01:01,100 --> 00:01:01,933
Yes.

25
00:01:01,933 --> 00:01:03,630
So, if you are a stay-at-home mom,

26
00:01:03,630 --> 00:01:05,200
this is so interesting to me,

27
00:01:05,200 --> 00:01:08,070
if you were put on a salary
based on everything you do,

28
00:01:08,070 --> 00:01:13,030
do you know you would make
close to $162,000 a year?

29
00:01:13,030 --> 00:01:15,620
It's insane, all the work that we do!

30
00:01:15,620 --> 00:01:17,830
So, there's so much that we have juggling,

31
00:01:17,830 --> 00:01:20,390
and things going on, and
let's just say that mom life

32
00:01:20,390 --> 00:01:22,340
can be a little cray-cray.

33
00:01:22,340 --> 00:01:24,100
And can we just talk
about some of the things

34
00:01:24,100 --> 00:01:26,598
they don't tell you
before you become a mom?

35
00:01:26,598 --> 00:01:29,598
(light piano music)

36
00:01:34,040 --> 00:01:37,300
Listen, being a mom is the best
job I have. Seriously, I do.

37
00:01:37,300 --> 00:01:40,460
I'm so thankful that I get
to be one, and I love it.

38
00:01:40,460 --> 00:01:42,980
I love the girls. I love having a baby.

39
00:01:42,980 --> 00:01:45,370
Like, it's great. I'm happy about it all.

40
00:01:45,370 --> 00:01:46,480
But just because I love it

41
00:01:46,480 --> 00:01:49,460
doesn't mean that things
are not hard sometimes.

42
00:01:49,460 --> 00:01:52,855
Yes. And there are just things
that people don't talk about.

43
00:01:52,855 --> 00:01:54,980
Let's just start out
with pregnancy, shall we?

44
00:01:54,980 --> 00:01:57,080
We have a lot we could cover here,

45
00:01:57,080 --> 00:01:58,940
and we won't get into a lot of it,

46
00:01:58,940 --> 00:02:00,890
except, let's just talk about your hair.

47
00:02:00,890 --> 00:02:03,670
I mean, my hair in pregnancy, I love.

48
00:02:03,670 --> 00:02:05,960
I do. My hair's amazing. I don't
know if it's the prenatals,

49
00:02:05,960 --> 00:02:08,140
the hormones . . . Who knows what's happening.

50
00:02:08,140 --> 00:02:09,190
But I love my hair.

51
00:02:09,190 --> 00:02:11,110
But then, after you deliver the baby,

52
00:02:11,110 --> 00:02:13,230
it all starts falling out.

53
00:02:13,230 --> 00:02:14,400
No one really tells you that.

54
00:02:14,400 --> 00:02:15,797
You think something's wrong with you,

55
00:02:15,797 --> 00:02:19,200
and you start just, like,
shedding, is what it feels like.

56
00:02:19,200 --> 00:02:21,830
Then, after you shed,
(laughs) a few months later

57
00:02:21,830 --> 00:02:24,360
you start getting all
this weird hair growth

58
00:02:24,360 --> 00:02:27,210
in places around your hairline

59
00:02:27,210 --> 00:02:28,590
that you normally didn't have hair.

60
00:02:28,590 --> 00:02:30,590
Like, all these little wispy
hairs start showing up.

61
00:02:30,590 --> 00:02:32,050
Like, it's crazy.

62
00:02:32,050 --> 00:02:34,880
And then, by the time
you get those tamed down,

63
00:02:34,880 --> 00:02:36,950
your baby starts eating solid foods.

64
00:02:36,950 --> 00:02:39,600
And then you start to
learn how to cut food,

65
00:02:39,600 --> 00:02:42,530
and that you will be cutting
food for your children

66
00:02:42,530 --> 00:02:44,980
for years and years to come.

67
00:02:44,980 --> 00:02:47,020
This is, like, one of the quirky
parts about me being a mom,

68
00:02:47,020 --> 00:02:48,950
is, like, I freak out about choking.

69
00:02:48,950 --> 00:02:50,223
Like, choking's not my thing.

70
00:02:50,223 --> 00:02:52,790
I don't do food and all that, so like,

71
00:02:52,790 --> 00:02:55,540
I would puree my kids' food
until they were 12 if I could.

72
00:02:55,540 --> 00:02:57,850
But I'm always obsessed
with cutting their food.

73
00:02:57,850 --> 00:02:59,467
And I just remember
thinking the other day,

74
00:02:59,467 --> 00:03:00,677
I'm going to be cutting their food

75
00:03:00,677 --> 00:03:02,870
for a really, really long time.

76
00:03:02,870 --> 00:03:04,110
Yeah, it's true.

77
00:03:04,110 --> 00:03:07,327
But listen, it's great work
that we get to do as moms,

78
00:03:07,327 --> 00:03:08,160
and I love it.

79
00:03:08,160 --> 00:03:10,720
But there is one thing
that I have learned

80
00:03:10,720 --> 00:03:12,710
when it comes to being a mom,

81
00:03:12,710 --> 00:03:15,140
is to work on yourself.

82
00:03:15,140 --> 00:03:18,620
Yes, it's so important to stop
and take time for yourself.

83
00:03:18,620 --> 00:03:21,570
And I know, for me, one place
that I've had to work on a lot

84
00:03:21,570 --> 00:03:22,540
is contentment.

85
00:03:22,540 --> 00:03:24,053
And that's one of the reasons I wrote

86
00:03:24,053 --> 00:03:26,260
The Contentment Journal.

87
00:03:26,260 --> 00:03:28,710
It's to spend time every single day

88
00:03:28,710 --> 00:03:31,070
walking toward contentment in my life.

89
00:03:31,070 --> 00:03:34,110
And the importance of
journaling, you guys, is so huge.

90
00:03:34,110 --> 00:03:37,430
Writing things down, so not
that you just remember things

91
00:03:37,430 --> 00:03:38,460
when you go back and read it,

92
00:03:38,460 --> 00:03:41,420
but also, it's amazing, subconsciously,

93
00:03:41,420 --> 00:03:43,520
what comes out when you write things down.

94
00:03:43,520 --> 00:03:45,660
So, if you've not checked out
The Contentment Journal,

95
00:03:45,660 --> 00:03:46,493
make sure you do that.

96
00:03:46,493 --> 00:03:49,010
You can click the link in the
show notes to get your copy

97
00:03:49,010 --> 00:03:51,210
or to start reading for free.

98
00:03:51,210 --> 00:03:53,810
All right, another area
that I'm trying to improve

99
00:03:53,810 --> 00:03:56,370
is finding new ways to save money.

100
00:03:56,370 --> 00:03:58,350
Yes, this is so important.

101
00:03:58,350 --> 00:04:00,770
And you guys are so amazing,

102
00:04:00,770 --> 00:04:02,540
so I went into my Facebook community

103
00:04:02,540 --> 00:04:05,570
and asked you all the ways
that you are saving money

104
00:04:05,570 --> 00:04:07,170
in your life right now.

105
00:04:07,170 --> 00:04:09,680
And we got some really great responses.

106
00:04:09,680 --> 00:04:14,017
Emily says, "Shopping at
Aldi saves us a lot of money.

107
00:04:14,017 --> 00:04:16,720
We even buy our diapers and wipes there."

108
00:04:16,720 --> 00:04:19,397
Alyson said, "Online
grocery order, for sure.

109
00:04:19,397 --> 00:04:22,337
I double up on paper
coupons and e-coupons,

110
00:04:22,337 --> 00:04:24,877
and I downloaded the Ibotta rebate app.

111
00:04:24,877 --> 00:04:26,327
I like to see how much my total is

112
00:04:26,327 --> 00:04:27,517
before I place the order.

113
00:04:27,517 --> 00:04:30,140
It helps me stay within budget."

114
00:04:30,140 --> 00:04:32,077
Ellen says, "Ebates.

115
00:04:32,077 --> 00:04:34,007
I order baby formula, cat food,

116
00:04:34,007 --> 00:04:36,997
and a handful of other
essentials from Walmart

117
00:04:36,997 --> 00:04:40,027
through the Ebates app,
which is a 5% cash back

118
00:04:40,027 --> 00:04:44,700
on all purchases, and free
shipping for the bulk orders."

119
00:04:44,700 --> 00:04:45,533
I love it.

120
00:04:45,533 --> 00:04:47,720
So many fun, little ways
to save money, you guys.

121
00:04:47,720 --> 00:04:49,250
Take advantage of that.

122
00:04:49,250 --> 00:04:50,810
Find those ways because, again,

123
00:04:50,810 --> 00:04:53,030
it's money back in your pockets.

124
00:04:53,030 --> 00:04:55,170
All right, another thing that
I need you to think about

125
00:04:55,170 --> 00:04:58,160
when it comes to your
family is life insurance.

126
00:04:58,160 --> 00:04:59,570
That's right, I've said it before,

127
00:04:59,570 --> 00:05:01,940
but you are usually the
CEO of your household,

128
00:05:01,940 --> 00:05:05,380
so getting term life
insurance is a priority.

129
00:05:05,380 --> 00:05:07,720
You and your spouse need to be covered,

130
00:05:07,720 --> 00:05:09,840
even if you're the one that stays at home.

131
00:05:09,840 --> 00:05:11,750
So, for those of you working,

132
00:05:11,750 --> 00:05:15,690
you need to get 10 to 12 times
equal your annual income,

133
00:05:15,690 --> 00:05:17,720
and for those stay-at-home moms or dads,

134
00:05:17,720 --> 00:05:21,500
we recommend getting a
$500,000 policy on you.

135
00:05:21,500 --> 00:05:23,710
Now, life can be really busy with work,

136
00:05:23,710 --> 00:05:25,370
taking kids to school, making dinner,

137
00:05:25,370 --> 00:05:28,040
household chores, like, all the things,

138
00:05:28,040 --> 00:05:29,880
so the last thing you want to do

139
00:05:29,880 --> 00:05:31,650
is put something else on your to-do list.

140
00:05:31,650 --> 00:05:34,800
But I personally recommend
using Zander Insurance.

141
00:05:34,800 --> 00:05:38,330
And I can tell you that they
help make things super easy.

142
00:05:38,330 --> 00:05:40,700
They walk with you through
every step of the process,

143
00:05:40,700 --> 00:05:43,810
shop all the top carriers
to find the best rates,

144
00:05:43,810 --> 00:05:45,830
and to make sure you're
getting exactly what you need

145
00:05:45,830 --> 00:05:47,120
for your family.

146
00:05:47,120 --> 00:05:48,680
So, go to zander.com today

147
00:05:48,680 --> 00:05:51,160
and make sure to get this taken care of

148
00:05:51,160 --> 00:05:53,400
and checked off your list.

149
00:05:53,400 --> 00:05:55,270
All right, coming up next is Paula Faris,

150
00:05:55,270 --> 00:05:58,650
and she stopped by, and we
talked all things working mom.

151
00:05:58,650 --> 00:05:59,775
So, check it out.

152
00:05:59,775 --> 00:06:03,200
(music)

153
00:06:03,200 --> 00:06:04,890
Paula, thanks for being here.

154
00:06:04,890 --> 00:06:06,620
- Thank you for having me.
- This is so fun.

155
00:06:06,620 --> 00:06:09,470
- We have been talking
about this happening

156
00:06:09,470 --> 00:06:10,950
for at least the last four weeks.

157
00:06:10,950 --> 00:06:12,530
- Yeah, I mean, it's
been a super long time.

158
00:06:12,530 --> 00:06:13,890
- No, we, you and I met,

159
00:06:13,890 --> 00:06:16,100
you were in New York City, we connected,

160
00:06:16,100 --> 00:06:17,550
I feel like we're soul sisters.

161
00:06:17,550 --> 00:06:18,930
- It was like,

162
00:06:18,930 --> 00:06:19,940
we're sisters from another
mister or something.

163
00:06:19,940 --> 00:06:21,100
Like, I mean, it just, yeah.

164
00:06:21,100 --> 00:06:23,290
- Basically, we're sisters.
- [Rachel] It's true, I know.

165
00:06:23,290 --> 00:06:24,730
Those people that you just sit down with,

166
00:06:24,730 --> 00:06:26,037
and you're like, oh yeah, we can just,

167
00:06:26,037 --> 00:06:27,960
we can start talking everything.

168
00:06:27,960 --> 00:06:29,830
- Everything, but I'm the older.

169
00:06:29,830 --> 00:06:31,570
- The wiser, we'll say that.
- I don't know about that.

170
00:06:31,570 --> 00:06:33,230
But definitely older.
- The elder. (laughs)

171
00:06:33,230 --> 00:06:35,360
- Yes, I am your elder.

172
00:06:35,360 --> 00:06:37,400
- Okay, so Paula, people that don't,

173
00:06:37,400 --> 00:06:38,640
are not familiar with you,

174
00:06:38,640 --> 00:06:39,830
you're a GMA anchor.

175
00:06:39,830 --> 00:06:42,240
- I am. I anchored weekends for four years

176
00:06:42,240 --> 00:06:44,170
with my co-anchor, Dan Harris.

177
00:06:44,170 --> 00:06:47,140
And then I was doing The
View for three years as well.

178
00:06:47,140 --> 00:06:49,570
And now, after last year,

179
00:06:49,570 --> 00:06:51,613
last year I stepped away from weekends

180
00:06:51,613 --> 00:06:53,600
because I just wanted to
work Monday through Friday,

181
00:06:53,600 --> 00:06:55,016
my schedule was so crazy.

182
00:06:55,016 --> 00:06:56,480
- So were you working seven
days a week at that point?

183
00:06:56,480 --> 00:06:58,570
- There would be some moments

184
00:06:58,570 --> 00:07:01,120
between anchoring weekends,
and doing The View,

185
00:07:01,120 --> 00:07:02,280
and other projects.

186
00:07:02,280 --> 00:07:04,440
I would go stretches of 21 days straight,

187
00:07:04,440 --> 00:07:05,727
and it came to a point where I was like,

188
00:07:05,727 --> 00:07:07,450
I can't do this anymore.

189
00:07:07,450 --> 00:07:08,677
And you know, I've really felt like,

190
00:07:08,677 --> 00:07:10,617
Okay, God. You wanted me
to, I feel like you wanted me

191
00:07:10,617 --> 00:07:13,520
to do this, but why is
everybody getting my leftovers?

192
00:07:13,520 --> 00:07:17,230
So, it kind of came to a point
where I went to management,

193
00:07:17,230 --> 00:07:20,750
they have been so, they
worked with me beautifully.

194
00:07:20,750 --> 00:07:22,740
They said, you can work
Monday through Friday.

195
00:07:22,740 --> 00:07:27,470
- Yes. Okay, so I'm curious,
just as an ABC consumer,

196
00:07:27,470 --> 00:07:29,550
between weekends, The View, and GMA,

197
00:07:29,550 --> 00:07:31,790
like, what's your sweet spot?

198
00:07:31,790 --> 00:07:33,600
Like, which one do you enjoy the most?

199
00:07:33,600 --> 00:07:38,030
- I loved GMA weekends because
we truly were a family,

200
00:07:38,030 --> 00:07:40,160
and it's really hard to replicate that,

201
00:07:40,160 --> 00:07:43,320
where you feel like your
teammates have your back,

202
00:07:43,320 --> 00:07:45,890
and they champion you,
and they advocate for you,

203
00:07:45,890 --> 00:07:47,900
and that you can trust
them. It's very rare.

204
00:07:47,900 --> 00:07:49,766
And so, that was one of the difficulties

205
00:07:49,766 --> 00:07:51,475
walking away from the weekends.

206
00:07:51,475 --> 00:07:53,730
I was walking away from a family,

207
00:07:53,730 --> 00:07:54,720
my second family,

208
00:07:54,720 --> 00:07:57,010
and I knew that I would probably never

209
00:07:57,010 --> 00:07:59,550
replicate that sort of
work environment again,

210
00:07:59,550 --> 00:08:02,710
but, you know, my real family
is most important to me,

211
00:08:02,710 --> 00:08:04,770
so that was the reasoning behind that.

212
00:08:04,770 --> 00:08:05,950
- Which is husband and kids.

213
00:08:05,950 --> 00:08:07,007
So, how long have you been married?

214
00:08:07,007 --> 00:08:07,840
- Thank you for clarifying.
(Rachel laughs)

215
00:08:07,840 --> 00:08:09,149
Yes, my real family
- That is the family

216
00:08:09,149 --> 00:08:10,400
she's talking about.
- Husband and three kids.

217
00:08:10,400 --> 00:08:12,030
Yes, we are college sweethearts.

218
00:08:12,030 --> 00:08:14,410
But we've been married almost 19 years.

219
00:08:14,410 --> 00:08:16,170
- And then, you guys had—
- The rest is history.

220
00:08:16,170 --> 00:08:19,200
We have three children. We
have a daughter and two sons.

221
00:08:19,200 --> 00:08:20,430
They're 11, nine and five.

222
00:08:20,430 --> 00:08:21,480
- Oh, my gosh.
- Yep.

223
00:08:21,480 --> 00:08:23,570
- Okay, so tell me like, though, now,

224
00:08:23,570 --> 00:08:25,550
because your schedule,
is it pretty consistent?

225
00:08:25,550 --> 00:08:26,383
- No.

226
00:08:26,383 --> 00:08:30,250
But it is a little nuts. My
kids are super understanding,

227
00:08:30,250 --> 00:08:33,010
and I am very present with them.

228
00:08:33,010 --> 00:08:34,150
- Yes, that's what I want
I want to talk about,

229
00:08:34,150 --> 00:08:35,989
is, like, so how do you do it?

230
00:08:35,989 --> 00:08:36,822
Because I hear that.

231
00:08:36,822 --> 00:08:38,600
People think I'm busy, and I travel some,

232
00:08:38,600 --> 00:08:41,530
but I'm like, that's
nothing compared to your job,

233
00:08:41,530 --> 00:08:44,345
and having to be there early
mornings, and all of that.

234
00:08:44,345 --> 00:08:45,920
So, if you're talking to a working mom

235
00:08:45,920 --> 00:08:47,233
and they ask, so, how do you do it?

236
00:08:47,233 --> 00:08:49,255
- Well, I think you just,

237
00:08:49,255 --> 00:08:50,790
first you have to give
yourself a lot of grace.

238
00:08:50,790 --> 00:08:53,500
You can't be everywhere,
and you can't do it all.

239
00:08:53,500 --> 00:08:55,790
I say, you can't lean
in, you just hang on.

240
00:08:55,790 --> 00:08:57,750
You literally hang on,
and you enjoy the ride,

241
00:08:57,750 --> 00:08:58,950
and you love your kids through it.

242
00:08:58,950 --> 00:09:02,590
But I try to be very present
with my kids when I'm with them.

243
00:09:02,590 --> 00:09:04,510
And I put the phone away,

244
00:09:04,510 --> 00:09:07,080
and I try to carve out something special

245
00:09:07,080 --> 00:09:08,510
with each individual child.

246
00:09:08,510 --> 00:09:11,490
And, for me, it's just
letting them know that

247
00:09:11,490 --> 00:09:13,390
they're always going to be my priority.

248
00:09:13,390 --> 00:09:16,020
I'm not always physically there,

249
00:09:16,020 --> 00:09:17,770
but they're always in my heart,

250
00:09:17,770 --> 00:09:19,380
and they're always my priority.

251
00:09:19,380 --> 00:09:20,213
- Yes.
- [Paula] I think,

252
00:09:20,213 --> 00:09:21,390
so you just have to pick and choose.

253
00:09:21,390 --> 00:09:22,460
You can't be at everything,

254
00:09:22,460 --> 00:09:25,650
so just pick and choose and
create a conversation with them.

255
00:09:25,650 --> 00:09:27,567
Say, okay, if I can only
go to a couple of these,

256
00:09:27,567 --> 00:09:28,817
where would you like,

257
00:09:28,817 --> 00:09:30,590
which ones would you like me to go to?

258
00:09:30,590 --> 00:09:32,670
And don't project the guilt.

259
00:09:32,670 --> 00:09:34,740
Don't tell them how guilty you feel.

260
00:09:34,740 --> 00:09:37,260
My kids, I've talked to
them on many occasions,

261
00:09:37,260 --> 00:09:39,400
I'm like, oh, I just wish
I could quit and stay home.

262
00:09:39,400 --> 00:09:40,737
And they're like, no,
we like that you work,

263
00:09:40,737 --> 00:09:44,530
and you kind of have a cool
job, and you do fun things.

264
00:09:44,530 --> 00:09:47,030
And I think they're proud
of me in some respects.

265
00:09:48,310 --> 00:09:50,840
But yeah, just keep an open conversation,

266
00:09:50,840 --> 00:09:53,210
be honest with your kids, and have fun,

267
00:09:53,210 --> 00:09:54,143
and carve out special time.

268
00:09:54,143 --> 00:09:55,180
- I think that that's
a good point, though,

269
00:09:55,180 --> 00:09:56,778
don't project your guilt on them.

270
00:09:56,778 --> 00:09:58,600
Because I feel like sometimes,

271
00:09:58,600 --> 00:10:00,037
as a working mom, you think, like,

272
00:10:00,037 --> 00:10:02,200
oh, my gosh they're
struggling, and all this.

273
00:10:02,200 --> 00:10:04,510
And yeah, there might be
seasons where it's harder,

274
00:10:04,510 --> 00:10:06,410
but I remember, specifically,
I don't know why.

275
00:10:06,410 --> 00:10:07,570
God's, like, given me this memory

276
00:10:07,570 --> 00:10:08,403
that's just stayed with me.

277
00:10:08,403 --> 00:10:10,460
Like, I remember before the
first book tour my dad went on.

278
00:10:10,460 --> 00:10:12,170
I was in, like, late middle school.

279
00:10:12,170 --> 00:10:13,630
We had a big family meeting,

280
00:10:13,630 --> 00:10:16,290
because back then, they went
like six weeks at a time.

281
00:10:16,290 --> 00:10:19,030
It was just like
this huge chunk of time

282
00:10:19,030 --> 00:10:22,210
he was going to be away, and
it was like this big reveal.

283
00:10:22,210 --> 00:10:24,400
They're talking about all
the logistics and all this.

284
00:10:24,400 --> 00:10:27,350
And I genuinely love my dad. Like,
we have a great relationship

285
00:10:27,350 --> 00:10:30,070
with my family. I'm so
thankful. I love them.

286
00:10:30,070 --> 00:10:31,610
But I remember thinking
late middle school,

287
00:10:31,610 --> 00:10:35,470
I was like, okay. I'm
fine. You're okay, Dad.

288
00:10:35,470 --> 00:10:36,303
- Yeah.
- Do you know what I mean?

289
00:10:36,303 --> 00:10:39,470
I could almost see, like,
the guilt on him, you know?

290
00:10:39,470 --> 00:10:41,186
And so, I always think about
that memory where I'm like,

291
00:10:41,186 --> 00:10:42,610
you're going to be okay. It's okay.

292
00:10:42,610 --> 00:10:45,810
- I think just, in this climate,
the messages that we get

293
00:10:45,810 --> 00:10:48,300
as working moms is, you
know, it's perfection,

294
00:10:48,300 --> 00:10:50,850
and it's striving, and you
feel like you have to do

295
00:10:50,850 --> 00:10:53,506
everything and accomplish
every little thing.

296
00:10:53,506 --> 00:10:54,339
- Yes.
- [Paula] And I'm like,

297
00:10:54,339 --> 00:10:58,200
it's just, sorry, it's not
a really great message.

298
00:10:58,200 --> 00:11:00,420
At least for me, it
doesn't apply for my life.

299
00:11:00,420 --> 00:11:01,730
I just think it's not about leaning,

300
00:11:01,730 --> 00:11:03,730
it's about just hanging
on and enjoying the ride

301
00:11:03,730 --> 00:11:05,730
and giving yourself the
same amount of grace

302
00:11:05,730 --> 00:11:07,140
that you give other people.

303
00:11:07,140 --> 00:11:09,550
You have to give yourself plenty of grace

304
00:11:09,550 --> 00:11:11,280
for the mistakes that
you're going to make.

305
00:11:11,280 --> 00:11:13,060
I tell, one of the greatest gifts

306
00:11:13,060 --> 00:11:14,740
that I have given my children,

307
00:11:14,740 --> 00:11:16,790
someone encouraged me to do this,

308
00:11:16,790 --> 00:11:19,530
is the gift of admitting when you're wrong

309
00:11:19,530 --> 00:11:20,830
and saying, I'm sorry.

310
00:11:20,830 --> 00:11:23,317
My kids know I'm not perfect,
and so when something, well,

311
00:11:23,317 --> 00:11:25,600
I'm sorry. I'm not perfect.

312
00:11:25,600 --> 00:11:27,890
And just creating that conversation—

313
00:11:27,890 --> 00:11:29,510
- That's so good.

314
00:11:29,510 --> 00:11:30,530
- [Paula] —that we're human.

315
00:11:30,530 --> 00:11:33,810
We're flawed, and it's
okay to make mistakes.

316
00:11:33,810 --> 00:11:34,773
Mommy's going to make mistakes,

317
00:11:34,773 --> 00:11:35,650
and you're going to make mistakes,

318
00:11:35,650 --> 00:11:36,820
and guess what, we're
going to love each other

319
00:11:36,820 --> 00:11:37,750
despite those mistakes.

320
00:11:37,750 --> 00:11:38,900
We'll love each other more.

321
00:11:38,900 --> 00:11:40,620
And you learn from the mistakes.

322
00:11:40,620 --> 00:11:42,960
- Yeah, that's
so good and so true.

323
00:11:42,960 --> 00:11:45,300
Just gives you permission, just
to take a deep breath, moms.

324
00:11:45,300 --> 00:11:47,330
You're good, even if
you're a stay-at-home mom,

325
00:11:47,330 --> 00:11:49,950
you're working just as much, if not more.

326
00:11:49,950 --> 00:11:52,300
I sometimes think with
those stay-at-home moms.

327
00:11:53,460 --> 00:11:55,640
Okay, so you launched a new podcast,

328
00:11:55,640 --> 00:11:56,473
which is so great, Paula.

329
00:11:56,473 --> 00:11:59,040
- I'm excited. I have to
have you on the podcast.

330
00:11:59,040 --> 00:12:00,270
- [Rachel] I will. I'll come on.

331
00:12:00,270 --> 00:12:01,103
- Please do.

332
00:12:01,103 --> 00:12:01,936
- Yes, because it really is,

333
00:12:01,936 --> 00:12:03,087
it's fascinating. So talk about that,

334
00:12:03,087 --> 00:12:04,000
I want to hear.

335
00:12:04,000 --> 00:12:04,910
- Yeah. We just launched it.

336
00:12:04,910 --> 00:12:06,520
We're on season two,

337
00:12:06,520 --> 00:12:10,292
and it just came out of
my own personal faith.

338
00:12:10,292 --> 00:12:13,660
I'm a believer, but I know
that we don't give people,

339
00:12:13,660 --> 00:12:15,780
at least from a mainstream
platform, mainstream media,

340
00:12:15,780 --> 00:12:18,140
we don't give them an
opportunity to talk about faith

341
00:12:18,140 --> 00:12:20,790
in the capacity of what they believe

342
00:12:20,790 --> 00:12:22,290
and why they believe it.

343
00:12:22,290 --> 00:12:23,610
We'll cut that sound bite out

344
00:12:23,610 --> 00:12:26,793
because, you know, it's too
spiritual. It's too religious.

345
00:12:27,920 --> 00:12:30,810
But faith is so important,
whatever faith you may be,

346
00:12:30,810 --> 00:12:33,220
it's so important. It's
the bedrock and foundation

347
00:12:33,220 --> 00:12:34,210
of so many of our lives.

348
00:12:34,210 --> 00:12:35,870
So I wanted to give people an opportunity

349
00:12:35,870 --> 00:12:37,520
to talk about what they believe and why,

350
00:12:37,520 --> 00:12:40,130
and how it gets them
through the bumpy times,

351
00:12:40,130 --> 00:12:41,900
and the highs and the lows.

352
00:12:41,900 --> 00:12:45,670
I just want to have really respectful,

353
00:12:45,670 --> 00:12:48,021
engaging conversations with people.

354
00:12:48,021 --> 00:12:49,050
- I think it's so good.

355
00:12:49,050 --> 00:12:51,920
That's powerful, and when it
changes your life completely,

356
00:12:51,920 --> 00:12:53,173
and the way you view,

357
00:12:54,150 --> 00:12:56,050
that's the lens you
see everything through,

358
00:12:56,050 --> 00:12:56,900
so I think that that's awesome,

359
00:12:56,900 --> 00:12:58,223
that you're digging into
peoples' lives in that way

360
00:12:58,223 --> 00:12:59,340
- Thank you.
- and having

361
00:12:59,340 --> 00:13:01,310
that conversation, it's so good.

362
00:13:01,310 --> 00:13:02,810
- Thank you, my sister
from another mister,

363
00:13:02,810 --> 00:13:03,820
or another mother.

364
00:13:03,820 --> 00:13:05,440
- It's so true. Oh my gosh.

365
00:13:05,440 --> 00:13:06,670
Paula, thanks for coming on.
- Thank you.

366
00:13:06,670 --> 00:13:07,990
Guys, check out her podcast.

367
00:13:07,990 --> 00:13:09,460
Make sure to go and subscribe to it.

368
00:13:09,460 --> 00:13:11,555
And thanks for being here.
- Thank you.

369
00:13:11,555 --> 00:13:14,472
(electronic music)

370
00:13:18,640 --> 00:13:19,710
- Wasn't Paula fun?

371
00:13:19,710 --> 00:13:21,450
I mean, seriously, one of
my favorite things in life

372
00:13:21,450 --> 00:13:22,930
is connecting with other moms

373
00:13:22,930 --> 00:13:25,010
because we can learn so
much from each other.

374
00:13:25,010 --> 00:13:26,510
So, this week, I want you to reach out

375
00:13:26,510 --> 00:13:29,730
to another mom in your life and
give her some encouragement.

376
00:13:29,730 --> 00:13:31,960
All right, it's time to
share some beauty products

377
00:13:31,960 --> 00:13:34,260
that will save you money
on your morning routine.

378
00:13:34,260 --> 00:13:37,003
So, check out this fun segment
I did with Woman's Day.

379
00:13:40,900 --> 00:13:42,250
Hey guys, I'm here in New York

380
00:13:42,250 --> 00:13:44,230
at Woman's Day's headquarters

381
00:13:44,230 --> 00:13:46,020
with the beautiful Pia Velasco.

382
00:13:46,020 --> 00:13:49,300
And she is going to walk us
through some great beauty finds

383
00:13:49,300 --> 00:13:52,240
because she is actually
the Associate Beauty Editor

384
00:13:52,240 --> 00:13:53,260
here at Woman's Day.

385
00:13:53,260 --> 00:13:54,410
So, thanks for being here.

386
00:13:54,410 --> 00:13:55,250
- Thanks for having us.

387
00:13:55,250 --> 00:13:56,100
- Yeah, it's so great.

388
00:13:56,100 --> 00:13:57,730
So, great value awards. You can find

389
00:13:57,730 --> 00:13:59,820
all these beauty products at a drug store,

390
00:13:59,820 --> 00:14:00,653
which I love,

391
00:14:00,653 --> 00:14:02,510
which means they're super
inexpensive, you guys.

392
00:14:02,510 --> 00:14:04,730
And, actually, each product is under—

393
00:14:04,730 --> 00:14:06,050
- It's $17 or less.

394
00:14:06,050 --> 00:14:07,480
- Yes, which is so fantastic.

395
00:14:07,480 --> 00:14:08,910
Okay, so walk us through some of these

396
00:14:08,910 --> 00:14:09,870
because this is so fun.

397
00:14:09,870 --> 00:14:11,500
- Well, what's amazing
about all the products

398
00:14:11,500 --> 00:14:13,630
is that they either have multiple benefits

399
00:14:13,630 --> 00:14:15,300
or you can use them in different ways.

400
00:14:15,300 --> 00:14:16,700
So you're really getting
a bang for your buck

401
00:14:16,700 --> 00:14:18,300
whenever you purchase
one of these products.

402
00:14:18,300 --> 00:14:19,540
- All right, first one.

403
00:14:19,540 --> 00:14:21,880
I'm spotting the foundation.
- Right.

404
00:14:21,880 --> 00:14:22,940
- I love foundation.

405
00:14:22,940 --> 00:14:23,910
- [Pia] So this is great.

406
00:14:23,910 --> 00:14:27,250
So this is the Neutrogena
Hydrating Foundation,

407
00:14:27,250 --> 00:14:28,920
and what's wonderful about it is that,

408
00:14:28,920 --> 00:14:30,670
since it is in a stick, you can take it

409
00:14:30,670 --> 00:14:31,690
anywhere you want to.

410
00:14:31,690 --> 00:14:33,900
It's no fuss, no mess.

411
00:14:33,900 --> 00:14:36,740
It glides on perfectly
for seamless application.

412
00:14:36,740 --> 00:14:38,020
- And I love it because it's on the go.

413
00:14:38,020 --> 00:14:38,910
- It's on the go.
- Right?

414
00:14:38,910 --> 00:14:40,530
Like, the one I use, it's like, liquid,

415
00:14:40,530 --> 00:14:42,100
and I have stuff, like, all over my hands

416
00:14:42,100 --> 00:14:43,210
and it's, like, all the mess.

417
00:14:43,210 --> 00:14:45,070
But this is so portable, and it's great.

418
00:14:45,070 --> 00:14:46,300
- [Pia] It's portable. It's great.

419
00:14:46,300 --> 00:14:47,520
And what you can also do,

420
00:14:47,520 --> 00:14:48,550
it's a little trick,

421
00:14:48,550 --> 00:14:49,700
that if you want to go a little,

422
00:14:49,700 --> 00:14:51,060
a shade a little bit darker,

423
00:14:51,060 --> 00:14:53,300
you can actually use
it to slightly contour.

424
00:14:53,300 --> 00:14:54,133
- Oh, very nice.
- [Pia] And then just

425
00:14:54,133 --> 00:14:56,490
blend it in very seamlessly.
- Yes, so beautiful.

426
00:14:56,490 --> 00:14:59,480
Okay, so Neutrogena Hydrating
Foundation Stick, you guys.

427
00:14:59,480 --> 00:15:01,340
Great value. I love it.

428
00:15:01,340 --> 00:15:03,360
All right, I'm spotting,

429
00:15:03,360 --> 00:15:04,660
what is this, a lotion?

430
00:15:04,660 --> 00:15:05,840
- [Pia] So that is a moisturizer.

431
00:15:05,840 --> 00:15:06,820
- [Rachel] Moisturizer.
- [Pia] And what's really

432
00:15:06,820 --> 00:15:08,010
wonderful about this is that

433
00:15:08,010 --> 00:15:09,860
it's also an SPF, which is wonderful.

434
00:15:09,860 --> 00:15:11,200
And it's also moisturizing your skin.

435
00:15:11,200 --> 00:15:12,860
But what I really love the most about this

436
00:15:12,860 --> 00:15:14,620
is that is also has a treatment serum

437
00:15:14,620 --> 00:15:15,550
inside its formula.

438
00:15:15,550 --> 00:15:19,900
So, what that means is that
it's formulated with Vitamin B3,

439
00:15:19,900 --> 00:15:21,630
which is basically a powerhouse ingredient

440
00:15:21,630 --> 00:15:22,790
for brightening dark spots.

441
00:15:22,790 --> 00:15:23,903
- [Rachel] Okay, beautiful.

442
00:15:23,903 --> 00:15:25,870
- It's a wonderful anti-ager.

443
00:15:25,870 --> 00:15:27,400
- I love it, so nice.

444
00:15:27,400 --> 00:15:29,670
All right, Dove Shower Foam.

445
00:15:29,670 --> 00:15:30,950
- [Pia] So, what I love about this,

446
00:15:30,950 --> 00:15:33,540
and what everybody really,
really goes to this one for,

447
00:15:33,540 --> 00:15:34,550
is that it's a three-in-one.

448
00:15:34,550 --> 00:15:35,790
It's your go-to product.

449
00:15:35,790 --> 00:15:37,680
So, it's your body wash,

450
00:15:37,680 --> 00:15:40,130
but it comes out as a
foam, so it's really fun.

451
00:15:40,130 --> 00:15:41,900
- And I'm assuming it's
probably lotion, too,

452
00:15:41,900 --> 00:15:42,880
considering it's Dove.

453
00:15:42,880 --> 00:15:43,990
- Yes, it is.
- [Rachel] Moisturizer.

454
00:15:43,990 --> 00:15:45,690
- So it has an ingredient
called glycerine,

455
00:15:45,690 --> 00:15:47,520
which is extremely moisturizing.

456
00:15:47,520 --> 00:15:48,710
So you can just wash your body,

457
00:15:48,710 --> 00:15:50,920
you don't have to put body
lotion on when you're done,

458
00:15:50,920 --> 00:15:52,440
and you can just walk out.

459
00:15:52,440 --> 00:15:55,210
And you can use it as a
shaving cream as well.

460
00:15:55,210 --> 00:15:56,043
- Oh, nice!

461
00:15:56,043 --> 00:15:57,810
- [Pia] Yeah, so it really
is your three-in-one,

462
00:15:57,810 --> 00:15:59,680
everything you need in one bottle.

463
00:15:59,680 --> 00:16:00,513
- [Rachel] All right there.

464
00:16:00,513 --> 00:16:01,740
All right, mascara.

465
00:16:01,740 --> 00:16:03,240
We love our eyelashes, ladies.

466
00:16:03,240 --> 00:16:04,540
- Who doesn't?
- Yes.

467
00:16:04,540 --> 00:16:05,500
So, CoverGirl.

468
00:16:05,500 --> 00:16:06,579
- [Pia] CoverGirl.
- [Rachel] Yes.

469
00:16:06,579 --> 00:16:07,550
- [Pia] So what's great about this product

470
00:16:07,550 --> 00:16:09,690
is that it's lengthening, it's defining,

471
00:16:09,690 --> 00:16:11,290
and it's volumizing,

472
00:16:11,290 --> 00:16:12,700
which is wonderful.

473
00:16:12,700 --> 00:16:13,840
But apart from all of that,

474
00:16:13,840 --> 00:16:16,280
it also doesn't flake,
and it doesn't smudge.

475
00:16:16,280 --> 00:16:17,113
- So good.

476
00:16:17,113 --> 00:16:19,730
- So you really get these
beautiful lashes all day long.

477
00:16:19,730 --> 00:16:21,760
- The fact that is
doesn't flake is the best.

478
00:16:21,760 --> 00:16:22,593
- You will love this one.

479
00:16:22,593 --> 00:16:23,426
- Okay, I can't wait.

480
00:16:23,426 --> 00:16:25,510
- And a fun trick, too,

481
00:16:25,510 --> 00:16:27,370
that is a little expert tip,

482
00:16:27,370 --> 00:16:28,680
is that you can use the wand

483
00:16:28,680 --> 00:16:31,220
and you can kind of wiggle
it under your eyelashes

484
00:16:31,220 --> 00:16:33,010
to create a very subtle eyeliner look.

485
00:16:33,010 --> 00:16:34,100
- [Rachel] Oh, very nice.

486
00:16:34,100 --> 00:16:35,630
- So that's a fun trick.

487
00:16:35,630 --> 00:16:37,600
- That's why you're the beauty editor.

488
00:16:37,600 --> 00:16:39,880
Okay, Vaseline Lip Therapy.

489
00:16:39,880 --> 00:16:41,750
- [Pia] So what's great
about this Vaseline product

490
00:16:41,750 --> 00:16:44,450
is that it's obviously very hydrating,

491
00:16:44,450 --> 00:16:46,150
so it's good as a lip balm.

492
00:16:46,150 --> 00:16:47,830
It has a little bit of a rosy tint,

493
00:16:47,830 --> 00:16:49,790
so you get a little bit
more of an oomph.

494
00:16:49,790 --> 00:16:51,960
It gives a little bit more of a natural

495
00:16:51,960 --> 00:16:54,040
rosiness to your lips.
- Totally, yeah!

496
00:16:54,040 --> 00:16:55,940
- And then you can dab
that on your cheeks too,

497
00:16:55,940 --> 00:16:57,570
and because it is a little bit of a balm,

498
00:16:57,570 --> 00:16:59,840
it does reflect light a little bit,

499
00:16:59,840 --> 00:17:02,570
and so it gives you this
really beautiful radiance

500
00:17:02,570 --> 00:17:05,420
that just makes you look
younger, more awake, healthier.

501
00:17:05,420 --> 00:17:06,940
And it's just a really, really nice look

502
00:17:06,940 --> 00:17:07,773
for your day to day.

503
00:17:07,773 --> 00:17:09,060
- [Rachel] So, I've learned

504
00:17:09,060 --> 00:17:11,850
that the dewy look is what's in, right?

505
00:17:11,850 --> 00:17:13,200
So, it's like a little bit of that,

506
00:17:13,200 --> 00:17:14,650
and so that's probably what that does,

507
00:17:14,650 --> 00:17:17,680
is it just kind of gives that
look above the cheekbones,

508
00:17:17,680 --> 00:17:18,513
and it's in.

509
00:17:18,513 --> 00:17:20,170
So ladies, you're welcome.

510
00:17:20,170 --> 00:17:21,270
You're welcome.

511
00:17:21,270 --> 00:17:22,280
All right, lipsticks.

512
00:17:22,280 --> 00:17:23,113
- [Pia] And then the lipstick.

513
00:17:23,113 --> 00:17:24,250
So this is the other product.

514
00:17:24,250 --> 00:17:26,130
This is a line by Maybelline

515
00:17:26,130 --> 00:17:27,670
made to flatter every skin tone.

516
00:17:27,670 --> 00:17:29,990
So you know how sometimes
you'll buy a red,

517
00:17:29,990 --> 00:17:32,270
and it'll suit you, but it
won't suit your best friend?

518
00:17:32,270 --> 00:17:33,370
- Totally, totally, yes.

519
00:17:33,370 --> 00:17:35,590
- [Pia] This one will
fit every single shade.

520
00:17:35,590 --> 00:17:37,430
- So nice.
- [Pia] Which is wonderful.

521
00:17:37,430 --> 00:17:38,440
- And it's just so smooth.

522
00:17:38,440 --> 00:17:40,180
Like, I just tested it on my hand, even.

523
00:17:40,180 --> 00:17:41,660
- Yeah, they're smooth, they're moisturizing,

524
00:17:41,660 --> 00:17:44,640
and they really just wear
so beautifully on the skin.

525
00:17:44,640 --> 00:17:45,560
- [Rachel] So good.

526
00:17:45,560 --> 00:17:47,050
- And so, what we like to do

527
00:17:47,050 --> 00:17:48,810
is that we'll grab this color,

528
00:17:48,810 --> 00:17:50,180
and we can put it on our lips,

529
00:17:50,180 --> 00:17:52,480
but we can also put it on our cheeks.

530
00:17:52,480 --> 00:17:55,960
Kind of match and give
this really beautiful look.

531
00:17:55,960 --> 00:17:58,700
And these shades that are
a little bit more nude,

532
00:17:58,700 --> 00:18:00,170
you can even use on your eyelids.

533
00:18:00,170 --> 00:18:01,540
- Okay, so great.

534
00:18:01,540 --> 00:18:03,720
- So that's a fun little trick for whenever you

535
00:18:03,720 --> 00:18:05,560
don't have space in your makeup bag,

536
00:18:05,560 --> 00:18:06,510
or you're kind of on the go

537
00:18:06,510 --> 00:18:09,160
and you need a makeup look all over,

538
00:18:09,160 --> 00:18:10,890
all you really need is lipstick.

539
00:18:10,890 --> 00:18:12,350
- And it's amazing. Lipstick
is one of those things,

540
00:18:12,350 --> 00:18:14,330
especially if you get inexpensive ones,

541
00:18:14,330 --> 00:18:16,370
it can change up your look so fast.

542
00:18:16,370 --> 00:18:18,520
So you can buy, like, a bunch
and have different options,

543
00:18:18,520 --> 00:18:20,290
and it's there, and it
doesn't break the bank,

544
00:18:20,290 --> 00:18:22,730
and yet, it's still great
quality, which is awesome.

545
00:18:22,730 --> 00:18:24,040
Okay, I'm seeing this back here.

546
00:18:24,040 --> 00:18:25,270
I'm fascinated.

547
00:18:25,270 --> 00:18:27,040
- Okay.
- Talk to me all about this.

548
00:18:27,040 --> 00:18:29,460
- Yes, micellar waters are amazing.

549
00:18:29,460 --> 00:18:30,590
So, what a lot of people don't know

550
00:18:30,590 --> 00:18:33,190
is that you have to use a
makeup remover and a cleanser.

551
00:18:33,190 --> 00:18:36,960
Micellar waters are fantastic
because they do it two-in-one.

552
00:18:36,960 --> 00:18:39,220
You just get a little bit on a cotton pad,

553
00:18:39,220 --> 00:18:41,650
put it on over your face, and you're done.

554
00:18:41,650 --> 00:18:43,240
That's it. That's all you have to do.

555
00:18:43,240 --> 00:18:44,490
- All the products in one.

556
00:18:44,490 --> 00:18:45,610
Oh, I love it.

557
00:18:45,610 --> 00:18:46,443
See, this is so great.

558
00:18:46,443 --> 00:18:47,850
And we said it earlier,
you guys, but it's true.

559
00:18:47,850 --> 00:18:49,037
I'm like, you get one of the products,

560
00:18:49,037 --> 00:18:51,350
but you get so many
different uses out of it.

561
00:18:51,350 --> 00:18:54,630
And each one is under
$17, so it's fantastic.

562
00:18:54,630 --> 00:18:56,329
Pia, you changed our lives.

563
00:18:56,329 --> 00:18:57,250
(laughs)

564
00:18:57,250 --> 00:18:59,030
Changing lives, making us beautiful.

565
00:18:59,030 --> 00:19:00,930

568
00:19:04,303 --> 00:19:07,220

569
00:19:12,080 --> 00:19:13,810
- All right, this was such a fun episode.

570
00:19:13,810 --> 00:19:15,590
