Dear readers, if you checked out a certain post this morning about overcoming kitchen-phobia to make the world's greatest breakfast sandwich (#worthit), then you already know there's been a pretty big addition here at Refinery29. Yep, today's the day we welcomed aboard Drew Barrymore as our brand-new editor-at-large.

Drew will be dropping in to dispatch her thoughts on work and health, love and family, and everything in between (personally, we're rooting for a hair tutorial). As an actor, producer, director, businesswoman, beauty mogul, and mom, Drew has a well of wisdom to draw from. And, even though she's pretty much a super-celebrity, she radiates this kind of known-this-gal-since-grammar-school vibe that makes her feel like an old friend.

To kick off our partnership, we got Drew's scoop on our new union, her desk essentials, and her two-word key to happiness in 2014. So, read on, and don't forget to comment with your feedback — Drew will be listening. And, seriously, go make that egg sandwich if you haven't already.

What first drew you to Refinery29? What makes this gig the perfect fit?
"Trustworthy guidance. Such a welcoming style! I love good, fun, spirited direction when it comes to all things lifestyle, and it will be fun to try and contribute to that. I also love writing, so this is a great opportunity."

What are the three things that always live on your work desk?
"Crazy, crazy piles of things that are totally disorganized. Highlighters. Framed pictures of my family."

We're not big on resolutions, but if you had a mantra for 2014, what would it be?
"Stress less!"
