Looking forward to Spring? I am! For my five faves today with Cindy and Annie I’ve got the best neutrals to wear this Spring and Summer (hint: how does Salted Caramel sound?) along with a movie we loved, a simple and delicious crispy fried egg that our son-in-law makes, and more!
Just want to mention how horribly sad and infuriating it is to see what is going on in Ukraine. Imagine if we had to defend our country on our own land while wanting to protect the ones we love and our freedom. God bless Ukraine.
1. What to Watch At The Movies: “Dog”
Howard and I enjoyed going to the theater again finally last weekend. We both liked this movie. It’s not “all comedy” as it will pull at your heartstrings…especially if you like dogs.
2. Luca’s Crispy Fried Egg
Our son-in-law, Luca makes the best-fried eggs!
Directions: Heat a small pan to medium-high heat with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. When it starts to smoke, add the egg. Let the olive oil crisp the edges and bottom of the egg. Sprinkle with herbed salt like my Sicilian Herb Salt (easy to make). Once the yolk hardens a bit, remove from heat and serve with a spatula.
I sometimes flip mine briefly for an “over-easy” effect.

3. A Great New Nail For Hanging Small Art
When I was at my sister’s new place to do a little decorating, I asked her to buy some art hanging supplies. She bought this at Target for $10. I love the nail tacks, so easy to use and stronger than tacks. I used most of them but there is one under the level below.
We hung this pretty Italian painted tile and the calendar clipboards in her office.
4. The Best Neutrals To Wear This Spring
According to Pop Sugar’s Six Biggest Color Trends For Spring 2022, “Salted Caramel” is in! Caramel and white always feel fresh.
I bought this white cotton Maeve for Anthropologie dress. It comes in Regular, Petite (I got the 8P), and Plus sizes. Love that it has pockets and a little cut-out in the back (but your bra is still covered). It’s a thicker material so you can’t see through it. This will be nice to take on our Italy trip planned for Spring.
Straw Hat • White Dress • Pale Pink Polish • Brick Red Lipstick • Tortoise Shell Bangles From Nordstrom Rack • Leather and Caned Tote • Slide Leather Sandals with Gold Detail (I want these) • Tortoise Shell Sunglasses
5. Spring Lipstick Shades
The first day of Spring is Sunday, March 20…but you can get a head start with a new lipstick! This is fun: Spring lipstick shades according to Cosmopolitan. The one above, Muted Brick Red is on their list.
