Hautelinks - your weekly source for the best of the web

Here it is, the final Hautelinks list of 2010! Where did the year go?? Anyway, as usual, we're here to help you unwind, procrastinate, or just cure your winter break boredom with our list of the week's best in internet goodness, the final edition before 2011 arrives! Enjoy.

*

This had me laughing so, so hard: 8 Stupid Amazon Products With Impressively Sarcastic Reviews. My favorite is the ship one, but they're all pretty amazing.

*

Former "The City" star (and everyone's favorite love-to-hate villain) Olivia Palermo, is getting her own reality show! Apparently, the TV series will follow her adventures while launching her own clothing line.

*

Stylelist made fashion and beauty predictions for 2011, and while some are ridic, some probably aren't too far off.

*

Also from Stylelist, a few great tips on dressing up an LBD for New Year's Eve.

*

Need some more NYE inspiration? InStyle lists the top 10 party hairstyles of the year.

*

Sienna Miller's Top 5 Style Rules - love her!

*

CollegeCandy brings you right back to HS (oh, the memories) with The OC: Where Are They Now? Am I alone in thinking TV just doesn't get that good anymore? Seth Cohen, we miss you!

*

Fashionista did a fantastic roundup of the best magazine editorials of 2010. Tons of eye candy here!

*

We loved this mashup of the past year in pop music.

*

Another look back at the year that was 2010: 9 Major Stories Everyone Got Wrong This Year.

*

And finally, WhoWhatWear listed their best-dressed people of 2010. Most of my fave fashion icons made the list - did yours?

*

Are Editors the new Outfit Bloggers? Have to say, I love this trend and hope it continues. The women behind the magazines are often more inspiring than the women in them!

*

If you're a Kanye or Nicki Minaj fan, you may already know this, but the video for Kanye's single "Monster" just leaked onto the internet today! Caution: it's NSFW!

*

Awesome and rather funny: F*ck yeah Menswear is a blog dedicated to Sartorialist-style shots of stylish guys, accompanied by funny, often-rhyming commentary.

*

Closet practically overflowing? Yup, mine too. That's why I love this idea of using your wardrobe as interior design. Would be so perfect for a small apartment!

*

Also apartment-related: DIY New Year's Decor. Cute!

*

I also love this idea for New Year's nails. Totally going for the sparkly look myself this year.

*

Could there be a Rihanna for Topshop line in the works? Have to say, we seriously hope it's true!

*

Also, Topshop darling Kate Moss is apparently branching out into Rihanna's territory, by recording an album of her own.

*

Although this doesn't apply to my hair type, if you have relaxed or natural hair, this looks amazing: The Healthy Hair in 2011 Challenge is basically a virtual group project for improving your hair's health in the new year. Love this idea!

*

I absolutely love this tutorial for achieving the perfect romantic curls.

*

Also great: Fashionista's feature on the 19-year-old that dropped out of college to be Kanye West's stylist. You can't make this stuff up.

*

Graduating in 2011? Wanna work somewhere amazing? Hope you're prepared for some seriously ridiculous job interview questions.

*

If you follow internet memes at all, you will appreciate this: imgur lists their best images of 2010.

*

Haha, so true: The Oatmeal on Why Some Emails Go Unanswered , and How #FollowFriday is SUPPOSED to work.

*

Sad but worth reading: Isabelle Caro, a French actress and model who spoke out against the trend toward super skinny runway models, passed away recently, after losing her battle with anorexia.

*

Finally, I thought this was interesting: Amazon released the list of their best-selling products of 2010. Guess people really love their Revitalash!
