Second City Style’s 12 Days of Christmas (Shopping) ’10. Lauren’s List Goes On & On

December 2, 2010 • Yahoo


I looked back at some of my old wish lists and I'm bringing some back at least until Santa gives them to me! I keep trying to be good, but alas I'm still left with a few oldies but goodies.

Apple iPad

OK, I know this is not original but I want this more than anything else! Not only can I peruse my favorite magazines and read books, but I can play games with my son (that is if I let him touch it!). When I see people with these I actually envy them. Mind you, my new HTC DROID Incredible is just that, but I would really use the hell out of the iPad.


NOOKcolor $249

If Santa doesn't bring me the iPad I will gladly take the NOOKcolor. This is my backup plan. I can read my mags and newspapers, download children's book and surf the web. It's kinda like an iPad lite. Kinda.

MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set iPad Case in natural python, $129.95

If I should be lucky enough to get an iPad I have to show it off in style right? This clamshell style case is designed with padded premium leather and provides a soft layer to protect your iPad. It also comes in black patent, gold pebble and gunmetal.

Genevieve Jones Wishing Safety Pin Earrings $850/pair

I have wanted these for almost 2 years now and still think about them, so I must really want them. The old punk girl in me is obviously alive and well, but a little classed up.

Gucci cosmetic case
Gucci Blanche Medium Leather Cosmetic Case $210

I desperately need a new makeup bag for my purse. My Jill Stuart one is looking really tired. This Gucci version will do nicely.

Yves Saint Laurent Muse Large $1,450

I know, I know…this is on my list every year and I still don't have it! And I still really want it which leads me to believe I would really carry this. Hear me Santa? I should just pony up and buy it for myself. I saw a women on a recent flight carrying one and I remembered how much I yearn for this bag.

I need to wipe the lines off my forehead! I need some Botox! Seriously. I have a young son and I don't want to look like an old hag when next to him.

 After all of this holiday craziness I sure could use a Core Fusion class and a massage. Just sayin'.

Update: Since this published I actually won an iPad courtesy of Sears Wish Book! I'm still in shock! I never win anything!
