Cute, Kind Of

Cute, Kind Of

By Laila
What do you do when your life goes slightly downhill? You start a podcast, of course! My name is Laila and 'Cute, Kind Of' is a beauty and lifestyle podcast I started when — you probably guessed it — my life was going downhill (but it's better now).

'Cute, Kind Of' is all about beauty and the life musings of a 23-year-old girl just trying to get a job. My only aspiration for this podcast is to connect with fellow beauty lovers and help others, so let's be friends :) Follow me on Instagram @cutekindofpodcast
