>> here to show you is our friend bobby. >> i'm not pregaming for a football game. but this segment. if it you flip through a magazine, you'll reyesize there are more masks than ever lately. the blue side of my face, hylauronic mask. it's a two step process you mix. it go from gel to solid, my favorite part about this is -- it's no -- no mess. >> how long do you leave it on? >> all of it comes off. feel my skin. >> it's dewey. oh, my gosh. >> five minutes or more? i left this on for a couple hours.
need a magnet to take off. that's what's suggested. this is what comes in the jar, if i wipe it off on this tissue, and the camera catches this, this is a magnet that's include ed, it sticks. so you wrap the magnet in tissue. after you apply the mask, and let it sit for five minutes. this is mind blowg. >> i'm not even kidding you. it's the wildest thing it's all about harnessing the power of attraction. and i have to -- >> you have to get a clean tissue, yeah. >> what this is aiming to do is pull through all the stuff in your pores. >> what i love, it all comes off so easily. >> and then honestly when i'm not on tv at home, i got it off
>> you like results? you did prefer this one? >> i liked both for different reasons. this one i saw instantly overnight my wrinkles were gone. it was all about depuffing. >> try it on me and we'll see. >> i don't know. so this is all about self-heating masks. i would say out of all the masks here today, if you want something that's got a kick, i actually had to take this off sooner than later. these seventh heaven masks. put this on your hand. this is really going to kick up heat which is alou it is powerful. rub it in. >> because i'm so hot already. >> you must be hot, be careful. burn your arm. >> this is all about moving the blood circulation around. >> you don't feel warm? >> you don't feel it at all? >> not much. >> what's wrong with you? >> what's wrong with you, hoda? >> you don't have any fat, that's your problem. >> how about the -- >> don't you feel it? >> when it's on your face, this was something i would say not
but most any of the selfie heating masks you'll want to make sure you do test the small area first. >> all right. these are some great invisible masks. some of the most popular on the market. origins has their drink up and clinique has their moisture boost. what's great about those is if you answer the door for a delivery man, you won't scare them. they're invisible. great for travel. last but not least, spot treatment. if you've seen anybody on selfie with this. makes your lips. >> coming up, have you pie and eat it too. how one working mom has learned to live life one slice at a time. get away from me. oh, no, we'll be back after your
i'm not sure if you got our e-mail but we're doing a fiesta lunch next friday and we thought you'd bring the guacamole. you probably won't have time to make it. you can buy it. which is fine. enough for 18. >> i can make it, not a problem. >> great. >> totally. >> god. taking the high road is exhausting. it's 2015. are we really still critical of working moms, seriously, still. >> ah, the ever elusive mystery of trying to strike the perfect work/life balance. anne hathaway playing a workaholic mom in a wonderful film "the intern." >> it was a great one. well, samantha has just written a controversial new book claiming women should not be stay at home moms, just as working moms shouldn't be
>> the book is called "the pie life, a guilt free recipe for success and satisfaction." >> a lot these things always get the working mom versus stay at home mom, but really there are a lot more aspects to it than just that. >> absolutely. in working with all these women, interviewing in so many women for the book. i found the most fulfilled have one thing in common. they're involved in so many dimensions of their life. it's not just motherhood or work. they're involved -- they go on date nights and they go on mom's nights outs and they go to the gym and have their friends and hobbies and community. what i'm saying is make sure you're involved in all of those aspects of your life because that's going better parent and better partner and better sister, friend. >> you're talking to somebody that's -- their work by nature has them at the office from like 7:00 to 7:00. >> sure. >> then they're going to want to be just with their children, aren't they? >> the rest of it falls away. >> isn't every situation unique? >> absolutely. what i'm saying is, let's focus on the future.
it's only five years until your child is in kindergarten full time. and our careers last a lifetime. >> let's talk about the maintenance. those early years. you can step right down. >> i always say those first few years are really, really hard and they're full of manual labor and in my house at least so sleepless. so not the years you necessarily need to leap frog five levels in your career. if you can stay in the game some way, just keep your foot in the door, then you're winning. >> let's move down to something you call the golden triangle. >> yes, this is critical. >> but not what you think. >> i know where your mind's going but -- so the gold be triangle is the three points between your home, your office and your child's school. >> makes a lot of sense to me. >> yeah, like, i just met a mom the other day who was a publicist who said i used to go to a chiropractor 45 minutes from my home and now i found one within the golden triangle. and i save six hours a month. it's really a time saver. i love that trick. you can change that tomorrow. >> pretty much you can find what
>> -- unless you're really in love with somebody and you want to drive that far away. >> if you're in love, you'll find a new love closer. >> this one is going to be tough for a lot of people. you say wake up an hour before the person who wakes up the earliest in the home. >> yes, it sounds like torture to a sleepless mom but it's called the magic hour. if you let your child be the alarm clock, you're already a step behind. check an e-mail, whatever you want to do, you hit the ground running, rather than feeling like you're a step behind all day. of course this means you have to set your alarm clock an hour early. >> depends what time you get to sleep. it's not easy. >> none of it is easy. >> we never said it would be easy. >> what's the final one? >> as busy working moms and busy moms in general, we're saddled with so many daily decisions, right, it's like should i let my kid have a sleepover what should i pack for lunch, endless decisions. make those decisions fast and
>> just do it, i agree. >> give me one second to talk to the women out there who were upset with the concept you could not be happy and be fulfilled if you were only staying at home and taking care of your children. i don't think that's what you were trying to say. i know many fulfilled people, that's all they wanted in life. >> i worked with so many women. what ends up happening after those years when their kids are off to school, they feel like, oh, my gosh, i want to get back to wor i what i'm saying is just keep your foot in the door. keep those networks warm. get a part-time job. do something so when you want to go back if the unexpected happens, then you have choices. when we don't earn money, it's harder to have choices. >> all right, thank you very much. >> thank you so much. >> the pie life hits store shelves on tuesday. >> all righty. >> everyone has a story and wait until you hear what one brave young girl is so happy to be
because i'm a woman... pressure or conquer the field? defy expectations any day with always infinity. made with flexfoam. absorbs 10x its weight. rewrite the rules. always. i love my shop, but my back pain was making it hard to sleep and open up on time. then i found aleve pm. the only one to combine a sleep aid plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. now i'm back.
? everyone has a moment ? >> that is kathie lee gifford, those beautiful pipes. >> you don't have to point that out, hoda woman, thank you. >> it is time for everyone has a story. in honor of childhood cancer awareness month, our great friend rocky who we call rock star brought a very special story to our attention. >> an amazing 12-year-old named brianna lopez from fort lee new jersey who like 1,000 other children in this country was diagnosed with cancer last year. we'll speak with bri and her family in just a moment. first, here's her story. as told by rocky. >> brianna doesn't know what her favorite tv show is but she knows how to spell petechia. that's what happens when you're
it was the petechia, little red spots caused by broken blood vessels, that eventually sent bri to the doctor. that very night, rushing to the hospital, where she would spent the next 210 days, including her 12th birthday fighting leukemia. her mother and stepfather both quit their jobs to focus on their daughter's health. what happened next was a no holds barred attempt to save surgery, transfusion, chemo and hair loss. her parents shaved their heads in solidarity. then her grandparents and godfather. as was said at the beginning, whatever happens the home team is in this together. but before things could get better, they got worse. brianna needed a bone marrow transplant to survive. the doctors decided to use her
after months of fighting, over 100 blood transfusions and six rounds of chemo, brianna was finally in remission. a much needed dose of good news. the woman who gave birth to brianna ended up giving her life for a second time. if you show me weakness, then i will be weak. if you show me strength, i will be strong, says be brianna. my parents pushed me and gave me strength. the family knows there's still a long road ahead. they also know they are strong. bri strong as their t-shirts say. as appreciation for life far beyond her 12 years. when her friends complain about school or homework, she remembers what she and so many other kids and families at the hospital went through and thinks just be thankful. >> beautiful, rocky, beautiful. >> great, great. >> brianna is here with her mom and her stepfather francisco. our friend rocky, of course, brought us the the story. how you feeling, honey? >> i'm feeling good today. >> you look beautiful.
>> thank you. >> when you heard that bone marrow was a match and you were going to help save your daughter's life, tell us what that was like for you it. >> amazing. i just have no words. i mean, to know that i can save my own daughter's life. we did bone marrow drives to try to find a match. you know, we tried to go everywhere, even door to door if we had to. >> of course. >> but thankfully, they were able to use me as the donor and i'm so happy that i did it. >> because often we feel so helpless when someone we love so dearly is sick because we feel like there's nothing we can do. but you really did everything. >> trying, you know, everything. you know, you feel helpless, you know, and then -- >> how are you feeling at that time, honey, when your mom was going to be the one to donate? >> oh, very, like -- i didn't know what to say.
felt like i had sort of a second chance to sort of just be able to -- i don't know, it's, like, oh, gosh, so many -- >> i think you meant joyful, happy. excited. >> i was speechless. i didn't have -- i had no words. >> well, the home team, as you call it, francisco is an amazing group of people. you have so many people in your tent with you now. >> can i tell you, you're totally in. >> you're filled up, you don't need anybody once you got rocky. >> honestly, you know, the most important thing is like, you know, when we were in the morning, that morning, you know, i told brianna, listen, you know, whatever happens, good or bad, you know, we're home team. you know, it's us four and nothing else is going to matter. >> those are the very words i took from the letter that rocky sent and we've written a song for you, my friend, david friedman and i, called "the home team." we have three fantastic stars
they're getting ready to sing. >> how amazing. it's a special song written for brianna and her family coming up after this. everything is amazing, it could be the smallest ice crystal, the biggest storm there mean to me? >> it means looking up and being inspired. even if it's just straight up blue skies. i mean, how beautiful is that, that little burst of red that happens when the sun comes right over the ocean, when it comes up in the morning. >> watching lightning streaking across the sky from one side to another. >> in the role of thunder, it's
there means. >> how that absolutely affects our lives, our day to day, what's in our stores, what are we going to wear, what are we going to eat. what is everything going to cost. the weather has real influences on, that's why it's amazing out there. >> what it means for me is, it lets the world know what's happening at the weather channel. >> i think what makes the weather channel's coverage unique, we are meteorologists, we know what's going on with the weather. and that makes a the field and says, thanks for being there. we're so glad you were here to take us through it. >> we have a charge, we have a responsibility. we have a drive to provide information for people, to help them, help their communities, help their families stay safe. it matters so much. >> you start linking the people up to the weather and the science and data, it makes a real connection, and drives home the importance of what we do.
