The witch of Karachi sheltered in the wilds of Thatta

Karachi and Thatta, two very different cities I have to deal with in very different ways. Karachi is everything I want to love and Thatta is everything I don't like to touch. These cities, despite of every difference between them, are a part of me - Karachi by my pure will and Thatta has always been an accident. But the days like today & yesterday, I've wanted to see the old plains and plants of Thatta, they are same as always, so green and familiar like they were years ago. 

Very good weather and colorful make up and witchy face - all brought together in one single post because it felt like I should be preaching about nature and stars and dark nights and power more. The thing about this little green place is that it never asks me to be myself, I can be anyone/anything and bury myself in the grass and write stuff in my journal. That's why I don't like the behavior of Thatta, it's like an old man stuck in new crazy century. It accepts me as I am and doesn't excites me which is not a good thing, not anymore. It doesn't want me to go on a race and win it. Small town with vvvvv small minds. We don't get along well very often. 

The girl in the mirror isn't me, it can never be me. The night under her eyes and the stars around them are everything she has. She's the witch that lost and ran away. She's just a reflection trapped inside the mirror with nature that keeps holding of whatever is left of her. She's an image of what I would become if I didn't fight back the patriarchy. I don't want to be sheltered, I want to win.







 I used this tiny and shiny (they rhyme so give me my bonus points) eyeshadows palette was the base of this look. It's from Born Pretty Store and can be found here. It's glittery and is in solid shades. It's quite small so it fits people like me who can't handle 48 eyeshadow colors at once. My favorite is white one. And plus points that it's waterproof so I can cry and the glitter will remain shining on my eyes. Use my code ARE10K31 for 10% off on your order on their website. Ta da!

Stay fabulous!!

  1. Whattay witch! I have never been to Thatta, but I wonder what it really is like. Your post is kind of discouraging but maybe I'll discover an inner witch too there! :P That Wednesday hair though! ;) x

  8. Wow! This post is awesome on so many levels. I was in Thatta a very long time ago and I was driving by on a road trip back to Karachi from Haleji lake. I like the expression "old man stuck in a new crazy century". You Addams Family hairdo is spot on! That's Wednesday Addams! Even Gomez has that hair sometimes. P.S. I love that decorative glass mirror!

  9. From photos to words, everything is SO ON POINT! You know how I adore your wonderful witching skills (in every way, ernn) but this is insane. Karachi VS Thatta, it isn't a competition anyways. But we do have to tackle different stuff at the same time. It's just about the time.

  12. I love the whole concept. From your Witch look to the writing style. Everything is spot on. I've been to Thatta so many times and totally agreed with 'Small town with vvvvv small minds.'
