    Love it! Last September I watched the top 10 in Ten Days, but after seeing your challenge, I feel like a bit of a wimp!

    • No don’t feel like that! That’s great that you managed to watch the top 10 in ten days!!! Considering the S+S list came out last…. July I think? And I haven’t seen them all yet :S Which is why I decided to formally do a challenge, so that I could keep track of my progress etc 🙂
