Most overused expression: I say the word ���amazing��� far too frequently, but, to be fair, I am amazed by things on a daily basis. Dream getaway: I could vacation on the Oregon Coast exclusively for the rest of my life and be completely content. Something about being by the ocean surrounded by beautiful, lush forests really puts everything in perspective. Cire Trudon Ernesto candle Fred Holston INSIDE The Head of ...
