Top Ten Twenty Ten

Hello and a very happy new year to you all. I decided to do something a bit fun seeing as my camera charger is at Del's house and i can't take any snaps of my mug for blog purposes! So I thought i'd do a little review of 2010. But i didnt want to just list everything i'd done in a great big paragraph, so i've made a little London Lipgloss top ten countdown, which i hope you enjoy reading! Please please feel free to fill in your own - link me to the post so I can read your top tens too! Obviously i'm putting number 1 as my best and number 10 as the least (but still great!)
