Second City Style’s 12 Days of Christmas (Shopping) ’09. Kelley’s Beauty and Dream List ;)

December 15, 2009 • Shopping


I can't believe its that time a year again, cold weather, hot chocolate, fuzzy slippers, and Christmas music! I never know where the time goes where we end up at Christmas again, and everything else during the year seems like a blur. Juggling being a new mom, running a business, and taking care of home, has me running on fumes, which is why I'm in for a wishful Christmas. This year I'm asking Santa, for a few things that will make life easier, but also pleasurable!


What don't I love about brushes! I have many. Okay, way too many already, however, it's been a while since I got a complete set of new brushes. It's almost that time, and what better brushes to get than Shu Uemura Makeup Brushes. Shu has some of the softest, most natural haired brushes around. These are definitely luxury brushes! Shu Uemura Makeup Brushes, $35-$67


There's nothing I love more than a beautiful gloss, and this IS the gloss. YSL Golden Glosses are amazing. Not only are they lightweight, and smell heavenly, but they leave the most amazing shine on your lips. Laced with real 24k gold, your lips will feel and look like pure luxury. I want every single gloss. YSL Golden Gloss, $29

Brown sugar 

Not sure why I have not discovered this gem of a line, but I am in love with Fresh products. The scent is amazing. The smell of bergamont and citrus makes me happy every time I take a whiff! I have been guilty just to wash my hands to apply the lotion. Heavenly! Fresh Brown Sugar Set, $75


I am guilty of having this on my Christmas List for a few years. This has to be the year that I get this wonderful case. I have retired my train cases years ago, and moved to a suitcase, but now its time to get more organized and structured with this Zuca Bag. Traveling with this case will be alot easier! Zuca Pro Artist Case, $295


Not your typical gift, but I sure can use a trip to Iceland's Blue Lagoon. Relaxation and pampering at its purest the Blue Lagoon is perfect for my weary body. This year has been a blessed and busy year, but I sure can use a dip in the Lagoon. Blue Lagoon, (Varies)


I know this can't fit under the Christmas tree, but I sure can fit in it! Land Rover's Range Rover has been my dream truck since I can remember. It's something about the masculinity and femininity rolled into one. It can compete with the best of cars, but is sleek and stylish. Land Rover Range Rover $79,275
