Laila Notes I.


It has been another hot minute since we last spoke, so please forgive if my blogging comes off a bit rusty. As many of you may have noticed, Townhouse Palette was shut down for more than a week, which is beyond what I intended. So, sorry about that, but let us pick up where we left off in my last personal post.

I decided to style this post like a Grace Day's, or That Grace Girl, Grace Notes (link). It is like a mini favorites posts. So, you know, something fun for the TP fam. 


Two posts ago, I posted my Skincare Routine (link) where I talked about my intense skin breakout I got a few weeks before I started college. So far my skin has been recovering very well, with only a few pimples popping up occasionally. The only issue I am trying to resolve is the hyperpigmentation. Which is nothing a good brightening mask can do! 

The Post.

In other news, I joined my school newspaper, The Post! I started off doing the photo staff; then I joined the multimedia staff; and now, I am also on the social squad. Yesterday, I had a photo blog go up about my experience being on the photo staff. If you want to read it click here. *Shameless plug, there is a photo of a sleeping kitten :)

My Fashion.

I want to let you know that if there is anything weaker than my Instagram, it is my fashion game. Like, it is WEAK! I have just been wearing leggings, sweatpants, and t-shirts. It is sad and the OOTD gods would not be happy.


As for movies, I have watched a few while at college. We Need To Talk About Kevin (2011) was definitely an intense movie that shares the dysfunctional relationship of mother and son. It is on the psychological thriller tract and it can be found on Hulu. I also watched Practical Magic (1998), it was not one of my favorite movies because it was not very Halloween-esque to me and I was not 'wowed' by the story line. I also watched Silence of the Lambs (1991) and it was fantastic! It was very suspenseful and had me at the edge of my seat the entire time. Also, the ending caught me by surprise.


The best part of the fall has to be the Fall TV! Once Upon a Time came back with its sixth season and I am feeling comme ci comme ca about it. I am not familiar with the story of Jekyll & Hyde, and I am not too ecstatic about the approach they are using with Aladin. Next, I am excited for The Mindy Project this season, as we left off on an intense cliffhanger dealing with Mindy's relationship. Finally, I was really shocked to see that Fresh Off the Boat is making its return for its third season, after being left off on another intense cliffhanger (that I really did not remember, opps!).


I did not wear any makeup for while because of my acne. So, nothing new to report here. 

My Bullet Journal.

If you remember, a few months ago I started my bullet journal journey and as of today, I have finally found a spread that works very well with my schedule. I will share it in a separate post, but for now, click here and here to see more about my experiences with bullet journaling. 

Future Posts.

For future posts, I am planning on more makeup looks because those are my favorite to post. I currently have a Pinterest Board of makeup looks I want to recreate (link). I think I want to recreate the Li Bingbing look (link) because it has an intense autumnal vibe. My friend Lily (link)  suggested to do a f(Luna) 'Free Somebody' makeup look because she said it will suit me well, but I really want to get the contacts Luna wore in the video before I do that look. I will probably end up doing a dorm tour post as well.


I wanted to end this post with a question, should I start a Townhouse Palette Snapchat? I know I already don't post on most of my social media accounts, but I think it would be fun and more personal. Tell me in the comments below what you think.

Well, I'll be back soon with my Autumn Edit. This is something I look forward to every season because it gets me excited for the new seasonal term. Other than that, I hope you enjoyed this post and I look forward to talking with you guys soon.

Happy Tuesday!
