Monday Mix Up #15- Inspiration from Drew Barrymore and a Giveaway! (CLOSED)

I love Drew Barrymore. If I were ever to meet a famous person and like, be able to hang with them for a day, she is who I'd like to hang with. I had been reading all the press on her new book,Find It in Everything, and it really got me thinking about hearts. I have always been pretty anti-Valentine's Day (chalk that up to my unpopularity and not having a boyfriend until the ripe old age of 16), but its the holiday I like to shop for the most. I love all the hearts and pinks and purples. While her book focuses mostly on those unintentional hearts (like when you lift a pretzel out of a bag and you're like, "hey, its a heart!"), below are some of my pictures that were inspired by her book.

This one I got lucky with this one (do you see it?). 
I took this in San Luis Obispo back in July 2013.

Me and my daughter eating heart candy at the car wash.

Random pile at my house.

Also check out her Instagram @drewbarrymore and #finditineverything. You'll see some other great heart inspirations. 


I love the book and the idea behind it so much that I am giving away a copy to one of you fantastic readers! Rules are simple - do all or some of the Rafflecopter things down below, and in a week a winner will be chosen. Once a winner is chosen, they will be contacted by email (so make sure I have that). If you are chosen, you will have 48 hours from the time I email you to respond to the email. If there is no response in that time, a new winner will be chosen.

However, you must have an address in the United States that I can ship to. This is not a sponsored giveaway. It is not affiliated with Drew Barrymore or her publishing company in any way. I purchased this book specifically for this giveaway.

  1. Oh, um, favorite Drew Berrymore movie? Riding in Cars with Boys, I think!

    1. This is going to sounds horrible, because I am such a fan of hers, but I've never seen that one! I'll have to put it on my watch list though :)

  2. omg, ET of course, and Ever After. Though I did love her as Sugar in Batman Forever even though I hated the films.

    1. I've only seen ET once. I was very small and I cried through the whole thing lol. But at the end, I told my dad it was the best movie ever. So even back then I was a Barrymore (and ET) fan.

  3. It's between Ever After and Never Been Kissed.
    I love Drew though regardless because she is who she is, and embraces her past and current experiences: the bad the good, the triumphs.
    (sorry if I commented twice...I think my browser messed up the first one).

    1. That's exactly why I like her. She doesn't try to hide all the stuff she did in the past, but shes still not trying to live like that either. She's grown up and moved on and I think its fabulous. Ever After and Never Been Kissed are two of my favorite movies ever. I think I have NBK memorized lol.


I look forward to reading your words of wisdom. Don't freak out if you don't see your comment right away, I do moderate :) Thanks!
