M’kay Curlfriends, Prolly about an hour ago I promised you a photo recap of my 2015. Because if you don’t already know, this is now a tradition I do so that I can remind myself that I am indeed doing *something* with my life and also so I can remind myself how young and pretty I once was.*
So, with just a tad further adieu, I give you, Courtney McClean (& The Dirty Curls too, of course)’s 2015, in pictures, which if you follow me on Instagram, it’s likely you’ve already seen:
