According to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), “surveys say about 20 million women and 10 million men in America will have an eating disorder at some point in their lives.” Many people from all over the world, of all ages, have either had an eating disorder or are currently suffering from one. The inspiring and brilliant foundation, Breaking the Chains is here to help put an end to that. This incredible foundation, brought about by the magnificent Debra Hopkins, works endlessly to change the face of eating disorders through art. Breaking the Chains has impacted a countless amount of people and it continues to do so as the milliseconds go by.

It was a monumental day for the outstanding foundation on October 13, 2018 as Breaking the Chains was the theme of the IAEDP Foundation’s annual brunch. Breaking the Chains Founder, Debra Hopkins was able to share all of her exceptional, hard work with over 100 eating disorders professionals at the event. The brunch took place at the Coffee Connection in Los Angeles, California. Celebrities including Jillian Rose Reed and Brooke Lewis, who serve as celebrity ambassadors for Breaking the Chains, were also in attendance to show their support towards the foundation’s big day. In addition, Breaking the Chains board members were at the event and motivated many people to join in and get involved with this stellar foundation.

The remarkable Debra Hopkins gave a touching and phenomenal speech to start off the event. She said, “Acknowledge. Engage. Participate. Celebrate. There is a spirit of hope amongst all of us, within us, about us. One that acknowledges the need to go make a difference in this world. One that engages to enrich that hope – to participate by taking action and nourishing that hope – a hope that is celebrated because hope is that special.”

It goes without saying that Debra Hopkins and everyone involved with Breaking the Chains have done all that is mentioned in the speech to make a difference in the lives of so many. They have acknowledged how eating disorders is something that many people are affected by and something that people can suffer from in silence. They have engaged with one another to find various ways to help people and share stories so people know they are not alone. They have participated in many walks, events, and have used social media in positive ways to help spread awareness. And, they have indeed celebrated. They celebrate the many people who have recovered from eating disorders, those who have gotten help and they continue to celebrate the future of Breaking the Chains and what it can do for even more people.

A powerful dance performance of “7 Chairs” took place at the event and it truly mesmerized everyone. The marvelous Jillian Rose Reed, who has been an avid supporter and celebrity ambassador for Breaking the Chains for several years now, introduced the dancers onto the stage. The dance speaks for itself and is choreographed by the talented Alex Little. In addition, Breaking the Chains board members also showcased their terrific paintings and photography at the event.

The phenomenal Brooke Lewis also hosted an exciting raffle giveaway for attendees at the event. Brooke Lewis gave the winner of the raffle an amazing gift-bag filled with goodies including a copy of her renowned book, Coaching From A Professed Hot Mess as well as beauty product must-haves from her TASH Cosmetics line.

The event was absolutely extraordinary and it’s clear to see that Breaking the Chains has and continues to change the lives of an endless amount of people. I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had a great time covering Breaking the Chains’ wonderful event with the IAEDP Foundation and I had an excellent time interviewing Debra Hopkins, Jillian Rose Reed and Brooke Lewis at the event. Debra Hopkins, Brooke Lewis and Jillian Rose Reed talked exclusively with Alexisjoyvipaccess about Breaking the Chains, the future of the foundation and what self-love means to them.

In addition to being one remarkable actor, Jacob Hopkins also is a terrific role model to all of his fans.

VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE: Jennifer Oleff Showcases Her Phenomenal Artwork At Her Platform 44 Studio!

26 Feb

alexisjoyvipaccess

Art truly has a way of speaking for itself – it can evoke important messages and themes, it can touch a person’s soul, and it can also inspire an individual in more ways than imaginable, and that’s exactly what Jennifer Oleff’s spectacular and breathtaking artwork does. Jennifer Oleff, an incredibly talented and brilliant artist, has her very own working studio called Platform 44 located in Beverly Hills. Just yesterday, February 25th, the outstanding artist opened the doors to her studio for a special open house that showcased many of her exceptional and remarkable art pieces. Her working studio space is not only a place where she is able to create her terrific artwork, but is also a place where art lovers can come on in and see the artist at work. For Oleff, she enjoys being able to not only share her work, but have people be able to see her at work as well.

As soon as you step into Jennifer Oleff’s working studio, you’ll be awe-inspired with the fantastic artwork displayed. Each of her pieces express a theme about self love, confidence, fear, or risk, which also coincides with her work with the inspiring and stupendous foundation, Breaking The Chains, which changes the face of eating disorders through art and was founded by the amazing Debra Hopkins. Jennifer Oleff is also a board member of the Breaking The Chains Foundation.

Jennifer Oleff revealed to Alexisjoyvipaccess, “It feels like it’s a release. If I don’t paint for a while, I end up feeling sort of confined within myself and then there are times when I don’t even know what to put on the canvas, and the minute I just pour some paint, or put some water even, any kind of mark, the process starts. It’s almost like I create a problem and then I solve the problem, so whether I create it by just dumping paint on and then it’s like, “What am I going to do with that?” or I start with a line and then I fill it in, and it’s just this feeling of completion and control and also a loss of control, which are two opposites and then I feel a lot of relief when I get done with a painting.”

Another thing that stands out in Jennifer Oleff’s marvelous artwork is her use of various materials. Many of her paintings include not just paint, but other materials such as dirt, gauze, and even a shirt of hers. It allows all those who admire and appreciate her art to be touched by it – both with its meaning and its tactile texture.

Oleff talked with Alexisjoyvipaccess about the inspiration about using these materials in her artwork and said, “I’ve been putting fabric and gauze in some paintings. That’s my shirt (as she points at her excellent painting titled “Abalone”). Ultimately, I love fashion, so I’m inspired by fabric and shoes and sculptures and texture and tactile things, so I came up with “Why do I keep these clothes? Why do I love certain clothes that maybe I don’t even wear anymore?” so I started really searching as to why I buy something or why something is special to me. Then, I decided to sort of go against what you think you should be doing with something, which is like, I’m going to cut it up and put it in a painting. I have a one piece at home that has a full dress in it. To me, it’s like taking that risk and also saying, “I love this so much and I’m going to put it here instead of wear it on my body.” A lot of times it comes down to if something is not working and you sit with it for a long time, this painting I sat down with for a year, and then finally one day I was like, “Oh!” and all of the pieces came together. It was a matter of timing.”

Jennifer Oleff’s artwork is one of a kind and will leave you absolutely amazed. Check out some photos below from her open house and stay connected with Jeniffer Oleff by following her on Instagram: @myplatform44 and visit jwoart.com!

Rules aren’t for everyone, but when you have a rather interesting imagination, you can definitely make the most out of your middle school experience – just like what happens in the highly-acclaimed movie, “Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life.” If you’ve seen the outstanding movie, (which you definitely have to as it’s amazing!) then you also saw the incredibly talented and magnificent actor Jacob Hopkins showcase his indescribable and exceptional talent as Miller, the school bully in the movie. It’s clear to see that Jacob Hopkins is such a sensational actor as he can take on any role, even those like Miller who are completely different from him (Jacob is one of the nicest guys on this planet!), and he can still give justice to his role. The remarkable Jacob Hopkins has proven himself as one versatile, gifted, and spectacular actor in the many projects he has worked on including the fan-favorite, animated show, “The Amazing World of Gumball,” as well as in other projects such as “The Goldbergs,” “True Blood,” “The Boy Who Cried Fish!” and many more. Jacob Hopkins always leaves us all speechless with his impeccable talent and we know that any project that he is a part of will always be a wonderful one because he is in it. 2016 was a great and successful year for the admirable actor, and we know that 2017 will continue to have many more awe-inspiring accomplishments for the outstanding Jacob Hopkins.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had a fantastic time covering the Skechers Pier to Pier Walk and had an excellent time catching up with and interviewing the terrific and immensely talented Jacob Hopkins again at the event. Jacob Hopkins dished exclusively to Alexisjoyvipaccess all about what is one item he would have liked to keep from the “Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life” set, what is one rule that he would make that everyone should follow, and so much more only in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE updated interview.
