Where have you gone Drew Barrymore?

We haven't seen much of the Golden Globe nominee on the big screen in the last few years.

But it's not like she hasn't been working.

Barrymore's Flower beauty and accessories empire is, well, blossoming.

"Flower has changed my life because it lets me be a mom the way I want to be and I still get to do something meaningful and think about girls and women and empowering messages," Barrymore told me at while promoting Flower's new eyewear line at Palihouse in West Hollywood. "I love movies but the hours right now for where my kids are in their life, it's few and far between that I'll work."

Barrymore and her art consultant hubby Will Kopelman have two daughters, Olive, 2, and Frankie, 15 months.

Barrymore revealed that she's turned down "a lot" of recent offers for projects in the ever-expanding television and streaming worlds. "Flower beauty is a fulltime job," she said. "We do a lot of traveling for it. I do a lot of press. I go to labs all over the country, truly seeking out the most innovative things."

The new eyewear line, sold exclusively at Walmart, includes 12 sunglasses and 24 optical looks with a collection of readers on the way.

"Drew is involved and she is involved in every detail," said Carmen Bauza, Walmart's senior vice president of health and wellness. "It's not like she's managing from somewhere out there and has someone else is doing it. I know when it hits the shelves, it's got her seal of approval and that gives me peace of mind."

Barrymore explained her philosophy behing the eyewear.

"The best place for eyewear inspiration is flea markets and then also department stores and then hybriding the two, seeing what's current and important to people right now and cutting edge and then bringing that vintage feel to it because everything is always repeating itself," Barrymore said. "Everybody is always pulling from yesteryear."

So how many sunglasses does she own?

Barrymore smiled, "Hundreds!"
