About Me + The Blog


*update at the bottom of the post

Hello! Welcome to Townhouse Palette, I am the editor, writer, photographer, graphic designer (sometimes), pr director, and social media peasant, Laila ^_^ I am a Pakistani-American teen located in the Midwest of the USA. Contrary to popular belief, I live a typical suburban teen lifestyle instead of the country/cowboy life many people who aren't from here assume. I am a straight up loner and I prefer to do things on my own, but don't get me wrong, I have friends and family I appreciate and love :) I have been in love with makeup, hair, and photography ever since I was really young. I was a HUGE writer as a child, not so much reading, but reading has slowly become a passion of mine.

I am currently eighteen years old and will be graduating high school in June 2016. This fall, I will be attending university to study Journalism, Strategic Communications to be exact. I am a pretty strange girl and all over the place, which is why this blog is strange and all over the place.

I started Townhouse Palette in the winter of 8th grade, as of 2016, four years ago. I have always wanted to start one, so I took the plunge. So far, it is the best decision I ever made! It is a place for any person who loves beauty, style, tech, cooking, and just life in general.

Here are a few posts to get started.

The Townhouse Palette fam keeps growing every day (kind of), so I hope maybe you would consider joining?

This is where the post gets awkward, lol. I do not know what else to say, but to stick around and read some of my posts???? Anyways have a great day ^_^

You can keep in touch with me through my social media in the sidebar.

[edit – 02/12/2018]

As of 2018, I am currently a sophomore in college studying strategic communication.

The last time I read this page with attention was two years ago. It warms my heart to see how far I have come and to see all the memories I have made.

I only came back to this page because my friend informed me it was outdated but I think adding an update at the bottom, instead of erasing the entire post, is nice. You know. ... for nostalgia.

I would honestly die to read my previous about me pages. They must be wild, lol.

Anyways, thank you for visiting Townhouse Palette! It is my little space on the internet where I blog about beauty and I really appreciate you taking the time to read it.

Have a good day ^_^
