Top 7 Things To Do In Karachi

Karachi, the city of lights has so much to offer to the people living or visiting this beautiful city. The city that is always lively, be it any day or any weather, people of this city are always ready for any kind of entertainment they can find to do.
There are a few things that you can do in Karachi when you visit the city any time of the year, and then there are some things that are seasonal and makes this city happening once or twice a year.

In this post, I'm listing down 'Top 7 Things To Do in Karachi' if you are visiting NOW or you live in Karachi and haven't done these yet!

1. Quaid e Azam's House/Museum
Houses tells us a lot about history and our culture. Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah's house is situated in the heart of the city and is absolutely gorgeous. One should definitely pay the visit to that house to remember him as well as to know the kind of lifestyle he lived. It's exciting to know the lifestyle of that era. If you are into history & museums, this extremely breathtaking house turned museum shouldn't be missed.
2. Food at Do Darya
Foodies, or non-foodies, Do Darya is the place to enjoy the beautiful sunset or dinner. The restaurants built by the side and some decks over the shore not just makes you enjoy the food, but the ambiance as well. If you love sunsets, be there in the evening and enjoy with the cup of tea. Where as at night, you have the option to enjoy the desi food along with the cool sea breeze & serene sounds of the waves/sea.
3. Crabbing/Fishing at Keamari
It may not be very clean or luxurious place, but the rustic boats add the vibe to the entire experience. Riding in luxury boats can be done in different countries along with in Karachi as well (there is an option for that too), but, the joy you get in these local boats is double the fun you get in the luxury ones. Riding in the sea, stopping in the middle to fish (though it's not easy to fish), sometimes stopping by the mini islands & climbing that adds to the experience and later enjoying the freshly picked and made fishes and crabs in the boat. You can choose the boat anytime of the day, while in the day you can enjoy the surroundings, water, fishing & island trip, night is usually for those who like calm sea, moon sighting and the lights.
4. Shopping at Zainab Market
Travelers, or no travelers, everyone has a corner for shopping. Admit it!! Zainab Market may not be the cleanest shopping market, it may not be easy to find a parking spot or let alone reach the market without being stuck in the crazy traffic of this city, but it's all worth it when you reach. You find the best antique pieces, the best place to find souvenirs, home decors, traditional shoes, traditional clothing/material and what not. That's one place everyone in my family when visit from any place in the world visits & shop!
5. Snorkeling/Scuba Diving at Charna Island
Not just snorkeling now, there are a lot of fun activities Karachi has to offer you, if you are daring enough. Snorkeling is one of them. An hour and a half bus ride to Mubarak village, which is a beautiful sea shore with crystal clear water. From there riding in a small boat & shifting to a bigger boat in the middle of the sea - this where all the fun begins. Almost 45 mins boat ride to Charna Island and if you are lucky, you get to see dolphins too if it's the season. Diving in the crystal clear water at charna island & experiencing life under water is an experience one shouldn't miss.

6. Super Savaari Express
If you haven't done a few things mentioned above, Super Savaari Express will take care of it. It's a tour bus, in a mini-bus which is not just a normal bus but the "mini-bus" with truck art and all decorated like a transport mini-bus, which you see all around Karachi but didn't get a chance to travel in yet. This tour bus defines Karachi. It is a full day tour in the bus that takes you to the famous spots including old Karachi. One thing you shouldn't miss!
7. Comedy Masala
Comedy Masala was launched in Karachi in February 2017. It was one of the best thing to bring to this city, and was a hit. With sold-out shows in April, July & Sept, Comedy Masala International is now back in this city for three days, 19th-21st October with another diverse line up of international comedians who will perform live in Pakistan for the first time!

It will be the fifth edition this time, after successful shows since February, with MORE live international stand-up comedy!

Review - Christine's Face Contouring.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, finally I am going to review about Christine Face Contouring powder. You girls have been requesting it for so long, but I wanted to try it and go out for hours, so that I can actually talk about it.
Let's get started!
This is the packaging of the contouring powder. It is available at Naheed Supermarket for Rs.250/
It will be easily available at any cosmetic's store, because it it not a high-end brand. 
This is how it looks like, it comes in different shades. At the back of the box, the sticker is of no.2, and at the back of the casing as you can see, it's no.1 :) Check the shade you want. I picked another one which had too dark brown shades. This one was the lightest. You can use this as a bronzer as well. I hardly use bronze because I look dark. But, for some reason, I am obsessed with bronzers these days and I want to try them from different brands. This is the first one I have and I kind of like it, as it is not too dark for me.

About the product:

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.
