Laughing in the Face of Aging

By: Chrysa Smith  Through the years, life smacks you with some interesting stuff, doesn't it? Good and bad, big and small, it's all part and parcel of spending enough time doing or being.  And while my innate reaction to most 'stuff'  is to first and foremost--panic, I have learned to follow it up with a side serving of humor.  A little laugh at irony or myself goes a long way in reducing stress and talking myself [...]

Seductive Scents of Summer–Right Now!

By: Chrysa Smith Warm weather can't come fast enough this year--especially on the East Coast. So, I do whatever I can to usher in those summer senses. You know, the smell of the beach, the balmy air, sunscreen and tanning lotion. While I'd love to know about more products to give me that kick start that I desperately need when pulling up the shades and finding more white and gray, I've got a [...]

Rx for the Winter Blues

By: Chrysa Smith For as long as I can remember, I'd  dread those months following New Year's. I know I'm hardly alone, except for those nutty ski bums who love embracing the cold and the snow. And for as long as I can remember, my husband and son, who love to ski, have planned and taken their ski trips---that is, following the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas. As you might imagine,  I've felt [...]

Play on Words

By: Chrysa Smith Like a lot of women, I watch the Super Bowl for its commercial quality--but maybe that's because my team never quite makes it there (because I do enjoy watching football on Sundays). So, having been in the marketing/advertising biz for a little while, I have my definite favorites and my duds. And sometimes I wonder, what planet am I on? I once managed a $1 million ad budget for a scientific company. [...]

Better Than I Thought

By: Chrysa Smith You may or may not be a foodie. Although I suspect, you do love your late night quality chocolate, don't you? Well, while I like to consider myself one, I've never really known what the true definition was---formally. You know I like to cook, love to eat and am fascinated when walking around a cooking store. I've interviewed top chefs, try lots of new restaurants and watch the food shows. [...]

Truth Be Told

By: Chrysa Smith As a writer, I'm always amazed at what comes out of Hollywood. Taken, X-Men, Star Wars, Meet the Parents, Madagascar, etc, etc, etc. What do they have in common? Sequels. Makeovers.  Lots and lots of sequels and makeovers. Now, while I have actually headed out to the theater for a couple of them, I have to beg the question: Where are all of the new stories? What about all of [...]

Don’t Believe It!

By: Chrysa Smith I always love watching food segments on television. I watch Ina Garten's show (aka The Barefoot Contessa), Chopped and even Guy Fieri's Grocery Challenge. So it's not unusual that I took particular interest in the Today Show's food segment about 2015 trends. Now the presenter, who was in good physical shape, framed the segment by telling viewers it was all about healthy food as the norm. Sounds good. Sounds about [...]
