FASHION: Keep it Real, Keep it Classy

Reach Magazine TV fashionista Sherrie Marlene along with fashionistos J-Love and J.O.

are sharing a few favorite fashion tips for success. 

sherrie marlene, Reach Magazine TV4Sherrie Marlene – “The most important fashion accessory to never leave home without is confidence. It can make or break an outfit.”

Sherrie advises women to KEEP IT CLASSY. Her favorite style look is the modern day Audrey Hepburn; classy and eye catching. “Don’t forget ladies, you can wear fitted clothing to show your a woman, but make sure it wears loose enough to show your a lady.”

Must have: (under) Garment Guard – amazing for all seasons!!

j-love2J-Love – “Fellas: Keep that shoe game tight. Shoes should always be clean. Dirty kicks will totally bring down a great outfit. Ladies: Keep that toe game correct. Get those pedis, and if your on a budget at least keep them clean.”

Personally my favorite look is an amazing button down shirt under a sports coat paired with nice jeans and dressy loafers. It’s dressy and casual; I can wear this outfit to a meeting or a basketball game.

Must have: Jergens lotion – Classy not ashy, people!

j.o. of reach magazine tvJ.O. – “Fashion is what you make it. Put your soul into it; when you put your passion behind something, you can’t go wrong.”

Must have: FRESH sneakers, believe it or not – the shoes make the whole fit! Personally, I rock Nike Blazer, Dunks, and definitely Vlado Luxury Kicks – check em out!

Fashion tip: Less is more! Don’t over accessorize.

The allotted time will be today, Thursday, October 1 beginning at 10:30 a.m. PST through Friday, October 2 ending at 10: 30 a.m. PST. The Reach Magazine TV team will then choose 5 winners; based on the most heartfelt and inspiring answer. Prizes from Cardboard Robot  and  Anvil Knitwear.

Who inspires our hosts??

J-Love – “Anyone whose ever been stepped on in life, whose ever been the underdog, who had known losing more than winning. That person inspires me because I know what it’s like to lose. My hope is that I can inspire them not to give up.”

J.O. – “Who inspires me is anyone who has the tenacity to drive to achieve their goals no matter the obstacles they face and whether big or small they become over comers and reach the top! That is who inspires me.”

Sherrie Marlene – “There are a few things that inspire me. My family is a daily inspiration to me, they are a constant reminder to keep moving forward. God’s love is the ultimate inspiration to me. It amazes me that through God all things are possible, which means no goal is out of reach. How could anything be more inspirational than that?”

At the Thresh Hold of FUN

Sherrie Marlene and J.O. at Thresh Hold Rock Climbing

Tired of spending hours at the boring ‘ol gym running in place to get into shape? Well Reach Magazine TV hosts Sherrie Marlene and J.O. may have just found the outlet you’re looking for.

 Thresh Hold Climbing Gym is a family friendly rock climbing gym that offers bouldering and roped climbing for all ages!

With over 3,500 square feet of roped climbing and over 5,000 square feet of bouldering walls, you can bring the whole family plus the rest of the neighborhood to enjoy a great way to get in shape!

Our day at the Thresh Hold climbing facility was a blast! After talking with co-owner, Brady Bluhm, and lead climbing instructor, Charlotte Tonnies, we found out that the company gives you everything you need to start climbing from the moment you walk in, all you bring are comfortable clothes and a good attitude.

And not only is it fun but it’s cheap! You can enjoy a full day at Thresh Hold for under $20 or you can become a member monthly or yearly and take advantage of all the gym offers including full climbing use, full fitness center use, free belay classes, free admittance to the many events, free yoga classes 4 nights weekly, free Power Hour Circuit training classes weekly, and free monthly climbing clinics.

One of the coolest things about the gym however is not the climbing you can do during the day but the worship that is available at night. Every Sunday ElevateHisName.com hosts a bible study/discounted rock climbing session for young adults to come together to praise Him and have a blast rock climbing with others their own age. Check it out Sunday nights going from 7:30-9:00 p.m. for bible study and 9:00-10:00 p.m. for rock climbing.

Thresh Hold Climbing Gym is located in Riverside, CA. To learn more about their facility, visit their official website!

Stay tuned for the Reach Magazine TV episode featuring Thres Hold Climbing Gym with J.O. and Sherrie Marlene scaling walls and climbing to the top!

Shout out and thanks again to Tea Stain Clothing for providing the charity tees for our hosts! Visit them to learn about the  Music Fashion Project –a charity based project working to raise money for music related charities.

Stay Fresh and Pay Respect to the King of Pop

Michael Jackson T-Shirt

Michael Jackson, the“Most Successful Entertainer of All Time” according to Guinness World Records, and a generally good hearted man who devoted so much of his time and his wealth to charitable organizations, will always have a place in the hearts of Americans. And now, Redefine The Tee has created a brand new way to pay tribute to the King of Pop with their Limited Edition Michael Jackson Tribute Tee.

The tees are available for both men and women in a black regular tee and a black or red long dress tee.  All shirts feature Michael Jackson’s signature sequined white glove and written across the front are 18 of his No.1 hits.

Reach Magazine TV‘s own J-Love got the chance to interview Founder and Creative Fashion Director of Redefine the Tee, Monique Spence, at the MAGIC Marketplace trade show in Las Vegas, NV and found out these HOT new tees are not only a fashion statement, but are also for a good cause.  Fifteen percent of the proceeds of the new MJ Tribute Tee will go to the music program at Theodore Roosevelt High School in Gary, IN where the Jackson brothers attended.

“You can never go wrong if you’re giving back,” said J-Love in his interview with Monique Spence
