"With Draper James, our goal is to bring contemporary, yet timeless Souther style to your wardrobe"




"I started this company to honour my Southern heritage and in particular my grandparents who were, and still are, the greatest influences in my life: my grandmother, Dorothea Draper and my grandfather, William James Witherspoon. My grandparents taught me everything I know about gracious Southern living. From them I learned to dress and act like a lady. My grandmother Dorothea only drove white Cadillacs—always while wearing proper driving gloves. She had an incredible sense of style and knew how to make the most of any outfit by wearing the perfect accessories. My Grandpa James could charm anyone. He taught me that good manners and great style go hand in hand. When I returned to Nashville with my own family, I wanted to recapture and celebrate all that I love and remember about my grandparents and the South. That is why I created Draper James." - Reese Witherspoon

ECO ANGEL: Sarah Michelle Gellar


Sarah Michelle Gellar Buffy & Baking 
ECO ANGEL 

Our June Eco Angel is actress and Foodstirs co-founder Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah began her acting career as a child actress in 1983. Her breakthrough role was Kendall Hart in the soap opera All My Children from 1993 to 1995. During the 90's Sarah starred in films such as I know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2, Simply Irresistible, and Cruel Intentions



As an actress Sarah is most known for her vampire slaying skills as Buffy Summers on the 90's cult TV show Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Buffy led the "Scooby Gang" for 7 seasons from 1997 to 2003 fighting the evil demons of Sunnydale. 

Sarah: "I think [Buffy] was the ultimate metaphor. It was utilising the horrors of adolescence manifested through these actual monsters. And I think that everyone going through thats the hardest time of life and to understand you're not alone through that." 

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

2017 marks the 20th Anniversary of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and the cast and series creator Josh Whedon reunited for an exclusive photoshoot for Entertainment Weekly. Buffy fans celebrated the 20th Anniversary with a sweet new range of official Buffy merchandise. 

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Reunion | Entertainment Weekly


Sarah: "I'm so incredibly proud of what we all created. Sometimes you need distance to really understand the gravitas of that. I appreciate everything about that job. As an actor, all you ever want to do is leave your mark - you want to do something that affects people." 

Sarah Michelle Gellar | Entertainment Weekly

After her reign as the Slayer, Sarah Michelle Gellar continued her acting career with roles in Scooby-Doo, The Grudge, and Veronika Decides to Die

Sarah: "Being an actor gives you a chance to play all kinds of roles, very moving and dramatic on one project, silly and girlish on another. That's the most interesting thing out this business, you get to keep reinventing yourself."

In her 30's Sarah returned to TV with a starring role in the drama series Ringer, where she played twin sisters Bridget Kelly and Siobhan Martin. 

Sarah: "Ringer is the perfect balance of what audiences want to see me do. It's Cruel Intentions meets Buffy." 


Ringer aired on The CW for one season from 2011 to 2012. After the show's cancellation Sarah landed the role of Sydney Roberts on the CBS sitcom The Crazy Ones. Sarah co-starred with comedian Robin Williams, she played his on screen daughter. 

Sarah: "In television, women can really run anything. It can be a comedy, it can be a drama, it can be genre, it can be anything. But in films, women are still getting to the top. It's a better time for actresses on TV than on film."

In 2002 Sarah married fellow actor and Scooby-Doo co-star Freddie Prinze Jnr. The pair met on the set of their 1997 horror flick I Know What You Did Last Summer but didn't start dating till 2000. 

Sarah Michelle Gellar & Freddie Prinze Jnr

17 years later Sarah and Freddie are still together and have 2 beautiful children; daughter Charlotte, 7 and son Rocky, 4. Being a mother and wife is Gellar's most important role to date. 

Sarah: "My family comes first... I don't want to feel like a failure to my daughter. She's the best thing I've ever done. Buffy - pretty great and all, but Charlotte's way better." 

Sarah loves baking with her kids in the kitchen. In 2014 she turned her passion for baking into a multi million dollar food company called Foodstirs which she co-founded with her longtime friends Galit Laidow, Gia Russo and Greg Fleishman. Foodstirs is a collection of organic baking products ideal for families. 

Sarah: “I love when we make pizza together because my kids get so creative. I wanted to find a way that we could continue to bake together but in a simpler way, using ingredients that I wanted to put in my kids bodies.”



Foodstirs offers the best organic DIY baking kits with all the ingredients, easy to follow instructions and most importantly no artificial preservatives and flavouring. From vanilla cupcakes to sugar cookies and rainbow pancakes, Foodstirs is starting a clean baking revolution! Sarah explains her inspiration for foodstirs;

Sarah: "Three years ago, two of my best friends (and fellow moms) noticed we were watching society becoming constantly more “connected” while simultaneously becoming more and more “disconnected.” Knowing the benefits of creating memorable experiences in the kitchen, we became inspired by the trend of DIY food projects. We saw a great opportunity to develop a unique, mission-driven brand and to create better-tasting, better-quality products that would encourage true connections in the kitchen.
We spent the next year creating our signature baking mixes, sourcing the best-quality ingredients, and developing the recipes so they’d be as tasty as possible. Clean labeling and transparency were very important to us — but most important was how we could use these products to help other people experience the true joy that comes when you unplug and actually connect."

Foodstirs offers creative baking kits delivered to your door with their Baker's Club. Foodstirs baking kits and baking mixies are also available online at Foodstirs.com and at Whole Foods stores across America.   

Sarah shares her favourite recipes (including Dessert Pizza) in her new cookbook "Stirring Up Fun With Food" with over 115 delicious ways to be creative in the kitchen. 

Her hubby Freddie also has a cookbook "Back to the Kitchen" with 75 delicious, real recipes (and true stories) from a food obsessed actor.

ECO ANGEL: Drew Barrymore


Drew Barrymore Wild Flower
ECO ANGEL 


Our April Eco Angel is actress and Flower Beauty founder Drew Barrymore.

Drew Barrymore was born in California in 1975 and grew up in Sherman Oaks. Her childhood was less than perfect and by the age of 14 she became emancipated. Drew was one of Hollywood's most famous child stars with her memorable role as Gertie in Steven Spielberg's 1989 scifi classic E.T. the Extra Terrestrial - which was the highest grossing film of the 1980's.  


Drew Barrymore 1991

In the 90's Drew starred in many movies including Poison Ivy, Mad Love, Batman Forever, The Wedding Singer, and Ever After. In 1995 at the age of 20 Drew co-founded her own production company Flower Films. The company's first film Never Been Kissed starred Drew Barrymore in one of her most famous roles as insecure copy editor Josie Geller. 

Drew's company Flower Films went onto to produce her films Charlie's Angels, 50 First Dates, Music and Lyrics, He's Just Not That Into You and Whip It!Drew's filmography includes acting roles in 48 films through her career spanning four decades from 1980 to 2015. 


Drew Barrymore | He's Just Not That Into You

In 2007 Drew became a brand ambassador for Covergirl cosmetics. 

Drew: "It was getting my sort of college degree in being a co-creative director for Cover Girl for eight years, being part of the campaigns, and concepts, and marketing, and photography. Working with [makeup artist] Pat McGrath and trying to drive the brand into something I felt like could best serve, as well as the women we were trying to reach gave me so much education that it felt like a waste not to do something with it." 


With her beauty knowledge and experience Drew Barrymore founded her own cosmetics brand Flower Beauty in 2013. Her mission; to empower women to feel beautiful with affordable cruelty-free beauty products. 

FLOWER: "FLOWER empowers women by developing products that help you look and feel great in your own skin, and to embrace your individual beauty with the support of inspired, luxurious products made with you in mind." 


FLOWER BEAUTY

Being an actress Drew has worked with many celebrity Makeup Artists, so she knows a thing or two about beauty! 

Drew:  "I’ve also been in a makeup chair since I was 6-years-old and had the fortune of working with the icons of the beauty industry, so learning, being in love with products, pigments, brands, companies, and just being a constant student of makeup."


FLOWER EYEWEAR

Drew's beauty company FLOWER has now expanded to include fragrance, brushes, bags and eyewear. 

Drew: "[The idea is] to build the branches of your tree from a nucleus. The nucleus is colour cosmetics with Flower: Fragrance, brushes, bags, eyewear — things that naturally evolve and don’t feel like they are greedy and all over the place."

Flower Eyewear offers 36 prescription and sun glasses sold in Walmart stores across America. 

FLOWER: "Love the way you look. You no longer have to spend a lot of money to get the high quality, fashion forward eyewear you want and deserve." 


FLOWER EYEWEAR | Good Housekeeping 

Drew: "I'm so lucky that I get to work in such a wide-array of design arenas every day. It's so energising." 

Just like many women Drew loves wine and launched Barrymore Wines to celebrate her love of creating memories around the table. 

Barrymore Wines by Carmel Road includes 3 wines including Drew's Blend Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio and Rosé of Pinot Noir. 

Drew: "I am passionate about wine. There is so much to discover and experience and my travels help me do that. Barrymore Pinot Grigio is made from Monterey grown grapes which is adjacent to the beautiful Blue Grand Canyon section of the Pacific ocean where extreme winds and deep, cold water create the perfect mix of fog and cool temperatures, ideal for growing the perfect grape. Please enjoy this varietal around the table, a place where I feel some of the best memories are made."


Drew: "I have been a long time lover of Pinot Grigio. I know for me as a wine drinker, first impressions is really important and it was one of the reasons that for this label I actually put my Grandfather's crest because I thought if you did gift this wine and brought it looked like something that wasn't overly feminine but it was just more of a timeless gift. I think about the presentation of wine because it's something that you remember that somebody gave you, you bring them into that experience and then you create a memory. And I think that wine has that amazing ability to be something that is so in tandem and so synonymous with memories." 

Drew Barrymore | Barrymore Wines

Drew shares more about her life since the age of 14 in her memoir Wildflower. Her autobiography is a portrait of Drew's life in stories as she looks back on the adventures, challenges and experiences of her earlier years. 

Follow Drew's daily adventures and join her 7 million followers on Instagram! 

Drew: "Instagram: that’s my platform. I need one and one only.  I’ve never done Snapchat, never done Twitter. Facebook is important but I’m personally invested in Instagram — that’s my channel."


From child star to Hollywood legend to beauty pioneer - Drew Barrymore is a healthy, happy and successful woman and we can't wait to see what she does next!
