Pamela + Vanessa #momsandwhine Ep.2 Mother’s Day pet peeves, gifts we really want, & shoe giveaway

Good evening mamas!

I hope you enjoyed watching Episode 2 of Pamela + Vanessa #momsandwhine. We’re having so much fun with these videos, in case it’s not obvious enough.

As always, each episode ends with a little show & tell. This week, I shared my love for Shh-oes, the quiet shoes I recently featured on PIX11 Morning News. They are super comfy, very quiet and moderately priced given that it’s leather.

Meanwhile, gadget guru Vanessa, my fabulous co-host, showed the new Nook Sleep feeding pillow that I might need to get for myself . I’ve been falling asleep in odd position on the living room floor. #MomBurnOut !!

Before we get to this week’s giveaway rules, the winner of last week’s giveaway is …. Aubrey Rochelle.

Good luck with this week’s giveaway, ladies.

Innovative Products Created by Women for Women, Pamela Pekerman on PIX11 Morning News

After a hectic two weeks in The Land of Motherhood (hello temper tantrums, is this what you look like??), I was thrilled to wake up at 4:30am and head out of the house!!! for another PIX11 Morning News segment with the lovely anchor Sukanya Krishnan.

This week’s topic was “Ahhhh-Ha Ideas Created by Women for Women.” I loved spotlighting innovative creations by fierce female entrepreneurs, that are hustling to make their businesses better and our lives easier. There were SO many wonderful, innovative products created by women, that came across my desk, below are the six that made the final cut. Hopefully, I’ll be able to spotlight more of them in upcoming segments. Ladies, you inspire  me to keep the hustle dance alive!

Fashion Fix: Tucktails ($19.95) Just in time for tank top season, this camisole is longer in the back, so you can move with confidence and comfort knowing you’re not overexposing your main asset. You can thank two savvy Southern sister for helping us all finally say no to crack.


Leg Up on Legwear: Bootights ($25) Love your legs and worship your feet- no more sacrificing comfort for style!  These knee highs not only have pretty lace cuff detail, but also has a performance sock at the bottom!  Provides that extra warmth during early spring season,  adds a sturdier base preventing those rips, prevents feet from slipping in boots, adds arch support with sculpted cushioning for comfort and the moisture-wicking material provides ventilation so feet stay cool and dry!


Shoe-In: Shh-oes ($139) Ssh-oes founder, Mary Arnett, moved to NYC  from the suburbs. Wobbling to her apt in her uncomfortable heels from the subway, she was always very self- conscious about all the noise her heels made. Then it dawned upon her, why don’t you make quiet AND comfortable heels? Hello Ssh-oes! They were amazing on set, this week. And, the comfort factor helped me get through a whole day 5am-6pm without any foot pain at all. Don’t be ssh about it … tell your girlfriends.oliviablack1_large Face Pilates: NuFACE Limited Edition Petal mini facial toning device ($199) In just 5 minutes this handy, easy-to-use device gives your face a Pilates-worthy work out, resulting in visible face lifting fabulousness.

Youthful Eyes in Minutes, Even If You’re a Sleepless Mom, Pamela Pekerman on PIX11 Morning News

I’ve always looked younger than my age. A huge chunk of that is do to amazing genetics – thanks mom. Another part is to good skincare habits – thanks mom. And, a final bit is due to minimal drinking – thanks mom. Wow, mom is awesome.

And, then, I become the mom! SHIT!

Erratic sleeping, constant worrying, breast feeding/pumping. It was starting to take a tole on my face, namely the area around my eyes.

But after 30-years of fabulousness, I wasn’t going to let a gorgeous 6lb baby be the cause of my skincare downfall.

I went into action, hunting down the best ways to not only take care of the delicate skin around my eyes, but also find ways to fake the “bright eyes, bushy tail” look that one has when sleep is so easy to come by.

This morning, I was happy to share some of my favorite finds for Youthful Eyes in Minutes on PIX11 Morning News. Below is a recap, in case you missed it.
