About Me + The Blog


Hello! Welcome to Cute, Kind Of (formerly known as Townhouse Palette).

My name is Laila, and I am 23 years old. I started this blog in 2011 after obsessing over YouTube beauty videos for years. I was too shy to put my face on camera, so I decided to start a blog. This year, 2021, actually marks my 10th year blogging!

I primarily focus on beauty and lifestyle, but I recently have started taking an interest in fashion and self-help/self-growth.

This blog ran from 2011 when I was in the 8th grade, until 2018 when I was a sophomore in college. I know right...talk about commitment. I have posted about 300 blog posts, 200 of which are now in the drafts.

As of 2019, I run a podcast called Cute, Kind Of. It is really fun to use what I learned from blogging and start something new.

I have grown a lot in the past 10 years and I am glad many of my memories were captured on this blog. I was not necessarily the smartest girl in school so running this blog really helped me positively navigate through my grade school years.

Cute, Kind Of /Townhouse Palette is the reason why I went to school for journalism. This website helped me discover my passion for beauty, fashion and writing. I have a lot of fun running this blog, and I hope you enjoy it as well.

Thanks for reading~
