Make Informed Family Planning Decisions + A Contest

This family planning and birth control discussion is part of a sponsored campaign from  All opinions are my own.

Fashion Friday: Tights

I think socks and tights are a fun way to dress up a boring outfit.   Do you have to wear a uniform to work and want to add your own personality?  How about the dress that fits perfectly, but is totally plain? Some of my favorites:
