A Single Mom’s Guide: Setting Up a Safe and Healthy Home

Running a single-parent household can be challenging on one income, and it can be difficult to know who you should talk to or what you should do in order to set up the safest and healthiest home environment for your children. With rising housing costs and high cost of living, some single moms are at risk of becoming homeless, should an unforeseen circumstance arise. Other moms settle for living in areas with higher crime rates, because they can get housing large enough for their families, but they often sacrifice a secure living environment out of necessity. Here are a few tricks for creating a safe and secure home environment for your family.

How to Find the Right Contact Lenses for Your Children?

Most of the parents think that contact lenses are only made for adults. Kids have no solution other than wearing their glasses.  The fact is young children can wear the lenses too. There are a variety of reasons for which kids might need lenses.

Great Jeans are Hard to Find

I am always in the market for jeans no matter what season it is because you never know when you will need a pair. When searching for jeans I always have such a hard time finding that one perfect pair. They are always to loose or to tight and I just can not find the right fit. True Religion Brand Jeans has all of you needs covered in the perfect pair of jeans for you. What’s better is that they are made in the USA . 

My favorite pair that I am loving right now is from their Boyfriend line and it is their Audrey Rolled Slim Straight Woman's Jeans. They are perfect for this weather we are having now and even thru the fall. I love that you can roll them up like Capri 's and then also wear them as jeans. I have really taken a liking to skinny jeans for women and I thought that they would be to tight and make me look big but they do not. I like the ripped and distressed look and I believe that look will be around for a while. 

What I would really like to do is get my husband in a pair of their men’s jeans. He does not own even 1 pair of Men's Designer Jeans. I love their men's jeans and I would really like to see him in the Men's Original Bobby Straight Jean. They are a straight leg and medium rise waist pair of jeans. It also has their Dark Hillside wash that I just love and makes them look a bit worn and dirty. Nothing makes a man look more sexy than the look of a working man. 

With fathers day quickly approaching this would be the perfect gift for my husband or yours. I would pair this pair of men's jeans with their fragrance gift set. They have 2 sets to choose from: True Religion Men and True Religion Drifter. I would also add in a Belt and my favorite is their Brown Embossed Logo Belt. My husband loves his belts and he wears them everyday.
True Religion Brand Jeans has all of your needs for your whole family with their kids line as well.
