"This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency; however, all excitement and holiday cheer expressed are my own."















When it comes to Christmas, Santa is definitely one of my favorite things and favorite people! His smiling face and promise of gifts in his jolly, red suit help me fight the cold days of Winter and prepare for my own gift giving events!
I mean who doesn't get crazy excited when you hear "Ho, Ho, Ho!"
Santa will be sliding down chimney's and making his way along with his 8 reindeer (hopefully Rudolph too!) right to San Francisco's posh Macy's in Union Square!
As if the Christmas Tree Lighting was not amazing enough good old St. Nick will be taking our Christmas list requests (and checking them twice) and should you be so inclined you can go and grant your own Christmas wishes right over at the Macy's!...I know that I will be. Right after chopping it up with Santa I will be on "Shop Til You Drop" status!
This is most definitely a family friendly event, so bundle up the kiddies, nieces, nephews and bring your positive spirit.  
Here is the Santa Claus is Coming to Union Square Info:
Santa Arrival Time: 2 PM
Santa's Location: Union Square, Macy's
 
Don't Forget:
-Your Christmas List and your whole family!
-Please arrive early because there is always a line for the most popular man of the season!Take lots of photos and tweet using the hashtag #MacysBelieve I will of course be giving my Instagram Holiday Life, so please follow me @ClassySharelle

  • A Nice Guy

    2 Fast Ways to Include Self Care During the Holidays! #BecauseMoment

    This post was sponsored by Massage Envy as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.















    My day is GO from the time that my phones goes off, I mean I have an alarm on my phone, but it usually rings before then.
    Where are my GIRLS at?....you know what I mean.
    Nope, I'm not a Mom, not a a home maker. I makes homes. I am going 24/7 to make sure that my people are paid and that it all gets done before the Turkeys get on the table.















    However, one thing that I can NOT forget it to take care of myself.  People seem to think that single women have it all. We are Free, Rich and have a LOT of TIME.  While parts of this are true...the TIME part...I can assure you from my perspective is most definitely not true.
    So when it comes to taking care of myself I schedule it just like any other task. Because I have a lot of people who rely on me: Nieces, The Mom and the people that I serve at my company I cannot squander on the time that I give to myself.  It's not a luxury, its a requirement.
    A few of my Single, Envied Girlfriends have asked me "Girl, how do you stay so cool during the holidays?  So since they were asking I wanted to share my tactics:
    1. Schedule Your P-Time!
    Now get your mind out of the gutter.  P-time is "Personal Time."  This is time that I do not allow anybody else to jump in ON.  Put it in your calendar like you would an appointment with your doctor (its THAT important).















    2. Make a Massage a Regular Activity!
    I like to grab a massage with my girlfriends, Mom or solo. Massages allow you to turn your phone off and become ONE with your body. Those text messages and email will be there when you get back, so give yourself that much needed #BecauseMoment.
    -Because its Tuesday
    -Because you are Fabulous
    -Because you dropped the ball at work
    -Because you didn't want to date that nice guy
    We all have #BecauseMoments and they are all reasons to look in the mirror and remember how fierce you are and how much you need P-Time!
    I suggest that we all roll up thru Massage Envy because of reasons! You can get 60, 90 and 120 minute sessions so that you can better for the world...and for yourself.
    Some basic benefits of massage:

  • Relieve Stress
  • Relaxation
  • Helps Manage Pain
  • Relaxes Muscles
  • Lowers Blood PressureI don't skip on Yoga, Drinks with my Girls OR Massage Envy ... #BecauseMoments are Major!
    Thinking of Making some P-Time and scoring a massage of your own?
    Check out my Fave #BecauseMoment locations online so that getting some of your OWN P-Time will be easy!
    Schedule Your Massage Envy Now!

    5 Tips for Attending the @Macy's Christmas Tree Lighting on Black Friday!
















    "This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own."
    When most people think of Black Friday they have visions of sugar coated Big Screen TV's and new laptops dancing in their heads. I think of long lines and early morning visits to retail stores and frankly...that's just not where I want to spend my day after Thanksgiving.
    I want to spend my holiday weekend with my family, coloring with my Niece, enjoying warm apple cider with my friends for Friendsgiving and above ALL else heading on over to Macy's in San Francisco at Union Square to watch the Christmas Tree Lighting! Its the 26th year that Macy's is hosting the tree for Union Square!
    Date: Friday, November 27th, 2015
    Time: 6 PM (But Get There Before!)
    Location: Macy's San Francisco, Union Square
    Can you feel the excitement in my words? Christmas is my favorite time of year.  
    People are nice, the turkey is Fried and the Christmas Tree at Macy's is going to be 80 feet tall!!...Ekkkk...can you believe that its finally here? 
    20,000 lights twinkling and sparkling all at once!
    San Francisco, especially in the upscale Union Square, can have its people and parking challenges so there are a few Tips that I want to share with you so that you can enjoy your time over in "The City" as much as possible:
    1. Arrive Early!
    The Christmas Tree Lighting in Union Square is a San Francisco Tradition that many people are looking forward to so be EARLY! There will be music and fun for the families and the couples alike!
    2. Score Great Parking in the Lot Across from Macy's.
    3. Dress Warmly!
    Although we DO live on the West Coast it can get a little chilly and who doesn't love the opportunity to wear a holiday sweater or a Santa scarf to share your festive spirit!
    4. Have a hearty breakfast!
    Also get ready to walk around Macy's and see all of the new fashion and beauty offerings. You will be hungry too so bring a little lunch money because there is a neat food court inside of the department store in case you get a little hungry!
    5. Come with Family and Tell a Friend.
    Don't rob anybody from the Ultimate Christmas Experience by not telling them about the Christmas Tree lighting. 
    6. Come Prepared to Take Amazing Pictures!
    Weather you are using your big digital camera (like I will be) or using your mobile phone (like I will be) to capture impromptu moments this will be a precious time to make more family memories. 
    If you are using your phone don't forget to Instagram or Tweet using the hashtag #MacysBelieve so that we can all share our pictures together and celebrate the magic that is Christmas. We will all be using it and sharing!!

    Once again it is WINE TIME with Columbia Crest!

       

    Once again it is WINE TIME with Columbia Crest!

    "I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Columbia Crest. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation."
















    Once again it is WINE TIME here at ClasyBlackGirl.com HQ!  As we are getting into the fall and recipes are getting richer its Red Wine season, personally my favorite season of the year.  Columbia Crest does something super amazing, that no other winery is doing...it allows you to basically make your own wine. WHUT...stop the presses (the WINE presses)!!
    #TBT to last week at our winery with the #CrowdsourcedCab ECO and where we did a tasting of the #ColumbiaCrest 1986-1990 Cabernet Sauvignon.
    A photo posted by Columbia Crest Winery (@columbiacrest) on Oct 1, 2015 at 11:30am PDT

    Right now the Blending Process has begun and you too can have your say on the taste and fragrance of the 2014 Columbia Crest Cabernet. I have personally tasted the previous years and the richness of this wine is impeccable!...and talk about full-bodied! The Cabernet Sauvignon is exactly the type of California Cab that makes any meal sing.
    Have you voted? VOTE NOW!
    If not, there is still time to add your opinion to the 2014 Vintage!...be sure and vote simply by clicking here!
    I cannot wait to open my bottle and sit around the fire with friends and family!

    Full Figured Fabulous @SuperModelEmme is Coming to San Francisco!

    "This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own."















    Being a Curvalicious girl has been a permanent part of my life. Its a part of my talk, walk and fashion.  As I began getting older and I started loving my own body and stopped trying to be skinny but focused completely on being healthy and fit...I started following power chicks like Emme and Marie Denee, The Curvy Fashionista (who I have had the privilege of working with and knowing).  Being curvy is what we all have in common. 
    So you can only imagine the excitement that I felt when I heard that Plus Size Super Model Emme was going to be in my town of San Francisco serving her her fashion, flyness and unapologetic curves. I was delighted.  
    I have always enjoyed fashion shows, but where are the really classy, curvy fashion shows?  At Macy's, of course.
    Next Saturday, October 24th, Emme will be in the Building at Union Square in Macy's! If you want to come, score your tickets by clicking here!
    What it meant to be a Model was always super skinny and unattainable-for me anyway.  Being that models are synonymous with all things beautiful, when I discovered Emme and understood her history and her passion for all of us to love our own bodies, I knew that I became an instant fan, "this lady understood my pain and curves."
    On October 24th this upscale fashion show is going to showcase:

  • Melissa McCarthy Seven7, 
  • Calvin Klein
  • INC 
  • Michael Kors 
  • & More...all for the Plus Sized Girl! Can you feel my giddiness?
    So I hope that this has you as geeked up as it has me, if so go ahead and meet me for selfies at Macy's Union Square in San Francisco and we can oogle all of the chic fashions! 
    Get Your FREE Tickets Here!
    http://www.eventbrite.com/e/emme-fashion-event-tickets-18252786576 
     
    We can also shop, meet Emme AND get a fly beauty bag if we spend $75 bucks or more! Ask me ANY fashion questions, I will be there to give you my #ClutchThePeals opinion on being pretty and plus sized for the Fall!...remember to use and follow the hashtag #MacysEmme and lets take some curvy pics together!

    Cleaning Up Before the Big Game!

       

    Cleaning Up Before the Big Game!

    I was compensated to write about my experience at Lucky's with Procter & Gamble but ALL opinions are strictly classy and my own!Yup...I hate cleaning up. Even before the big game on Sunday! I know, it's not exactly the classiest thing to admit, but hey.  Fortunately I was invited to Lucky's to meet the uber handsome Mr. Roger Craig and I got a ton of Procter and Gamble goodies to encourage me to clean up before the Big Game!....















    ....because now that its football season, Sunday is always around the corner!  And when friends and family come over I want my house to be squeaky clean and smell nice and fresh!















    There was a LINE through the parking lot of the San Bruno shopping center in front of the Lucky Supermarket.  















    Bay Area folks were all a BUZZ to see NFL Legend Roger Craig and of course to "spin the wheel!" and get cleaning goodies from Procter & Gamble! The entire grocery store was full of excitement and all of the employees were rocking 49ers gear.















    Me and a few bloggerista friends of mine and my main squeeze (My Mom!) had the opportunity to snap some neat photos and ask Roger Craig a few questions about his award winning football career and of course what he thinks about the team now!















    A Few Quick Tips on keeping your house clean and classy on Pre-Game Days:














  • Clean Up Daily for 30 Minutes, that way you do not have to stress on game day, since most of it will already be done! 
  • Make cleaning up like exercise so that you can kill two birds with one stone
  • Use Tide Pods to make washing your clothes a CLEAN and easy snap!...my Mom loves these!I received an awesome care package filled with goodies from Procter and Gamble and you can receive the same exact package AND a $25 buck gift card!















    Yes, its football season....so ya girl is in a sharing mood (courtesy of P & G)! You can get yours too!  I am giving away a pack just like the one that I got!
    We will also send you a prize pack to give to one of your readers that includes:

    An Easy Way to Give Good Skin!

       

    An Easy Way to Give Good Skin!

     "I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT®. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation."















    When you put on make-up and especially eye make up and take it off as much as I do really effective wipes can be hard to come by.  And.....when you find really effective wipes, they are sometimes so harsh that they dry your skin out. For a girl like me that already has dry skin, this is a no go. Dryness causes premature aging, lines, wrinkles and all of the BAD things!
     
    Then I stumbled upon Aveeno Positive Radiant wipes.  Channel the Harps.















     
    When it comes to beauty and beauty products, there are tiers (or levels) to this.  And these Aveeno wipes are most definitely TOP TIER.  















     
    When I wipe my face with these wipes, not only is my skin clean from all of the makeup and dirt that I have encountered for the day...but these are the softest wipes that I have ever had the pleasure of using on this skin.  I mean, I have over used these wipes. It is like beauty-pleasure. Target is a great place to score yours!...and even MORE Aveeno Positively Radiant products!
     
    I am super particular about my skin, I drink gallons of water so that I will maintain my youth for as long as possible...but life does happen.  However, the importance of moisturizing cleansers, SPF's for brown skin and great moisturizers are more important than any lipstick or make-up tricks. 
     
    I love the thickness of Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant daily moisturizer. While I rock an SPF daily I LOVE the fact that the daily moisturizer already has an SPF in it. You can never have too much protection from the suns strong rays.  















    AVEENO Positively Radiant AET 
    When your skin becomes a little older you require more moisturizer than when you were 21 and Aveeno Positively Radiant does it! Special Secret....the SOY!! It improves Texture, Tone and Tautness!  Go ahead...score some great skin!!
