2015 in Review

2015 has definitely been a good year, but I'm also pretty excited for 2016 to start! I love looking back on my accomplishments through the past year to keep me motivated throughout the following year. These are my favorite moments of 2015:

+ I chose the best college EVER and received a generous scholarship.
+ I made a big decision to change my hair up and get ombré ... and totally fell in love with it.
+ I graduated in the top ten of my high school class.
+ My family got a puppy.
+ I completely rebranded my blog to make the change from Private School Prepster to Lilly & Lemons.
+ I have received more blog sponsorships.
+ I survived my first semester of college.

Cheers to 2015, and hello to 2016!
