The Spark headline read: “It’s almost swimsuit season, and Publix® invites you to dive in with a little help from Yoplait Greek 100 Yogurt.” I love yogurt. All kinds of yogurt. Especially Yoplait yogurts. My mom introduced me to Yoplait when I was a teen. I read quite a few reviews before scripting this post. Nope I’m not a Greek yogurt snob.

No nonsense, Midlife fashion with leggings and tights… Oh Yes You Can!

This post brought to you by No nonsense. All opinions are 100% mine. Leggings and tights appeared throughout fashion history, and are once again a fun, economical fashion style this year.  Pierre Cardin’s 1967 Space Age Collection featured white knitted skin tight cat-suits, tubular dresses, and open sided smocks, aka tabards, worn over leggings. Fifteen or so years later, leggings hit the fashion scene again.
