Sometimes last year there was this huge demands for the use of a particular hand bead called “The Blue Eye Bead” it was crazy because at some point, Instagram was the platform that seem to be pushing the campaign and sales of this strange stones. At that time, There were a good number of cosmetologist and sex therapist who were involved in the sales of these stones.
A visit to their Instagram pages will give you a bird eye view of what am trying to say. There was a huge demand for the bead and those that have purchased it came on the page of these vendors to share their testimonies of the effectiveness of bead. This got me really curious and I decided to do a background check of the origin of this stones. But before then, I first encounter With the bead was on jumia. I went window shopping and then came across this beautiful bead that looks quite unique. It didn’t cross my head that there is alot to it than just being a bed.
Naturally, I am lover of hand beads especially the ones they call shambala. So when I saw the blue eye bead, I thought this must be a high quality hand bead and immediately I wanted one for myself because of the uniqueness. But then I noticed the price was on the high side and I chilled on it. So one fateful day, my girlfriend called and told me she got a hand bead for me knowing fully well am a sucker for beads. We met eventually that and behold, it was the Blue eye bead. I was like “oh okay ” and then she said “babe this a good-luck bead. Ensure you always wear it” I asked why reluctantly then she replied “because it is fortified” I laughed mocking what she said because it dosent make any sense. Fast forward to like say a month after, we were together somewhere and she got a call from someone asking her about the bead so I eavesdropped on the conversation and it triggered my interest about it. “Hmmm there must be something about this bead I don’t no” i whispered to myself. So I embarked on a journey to find out what this stones are all about and google was my next stop.
Google was kind enough to educate me about the myth and beliefs surrounding the beads aswell as the origin of the stones. Blye-eye beads, are traditional Anatolian beads used to ward off evil, similar to evil-eye traditions all over the world. The word “nazar” is derived from the Arabic word for “sight,” and is sometimes also referred to in Türkiye as a “Blue bead” or “mavi boncuk.”
Nazar beads do actually carry some meaning in Türkiye. “Nazar” is considered bad luck, or “evil,” and the bead helps ward off this evil according to many superstitions. If a person is complimented a lot, or is particularly attractive, or has a run of good luck, then it’s believed that anazar bead can help ward off the inevitable bad luck to follow.
But obviously in the modern era, they serve the equally important purpose of looking super cool and being some of the best souvenirs you’ll pick up on your trip to Türkiye! Here’s the top ten uses for the nazar bead design in Türkiye!
Naturally the stones are meant to ward off evil or bad luck from ones path but sex vendors in Nigeria seem to have a special one they term the fortified one and it’s quite expensive. fortified blue eye waist or hand bead has been intensely prayed on to provide protection,gives positive energy,it’s also for favour,good luck,and blessings.It also removes the evil eye from you. The blue eye wards away evil eye,brings good luck and attracts favor,It serves as protection to the person wearing it.
Just as it is often said, what comes with advantage, also comes with disadvantage aswell. The moment it comes on your wrist on waist, it must have to stay there until it has complete the reason why you got it in the first place. You don’t have to remove no matter what or there will be consequences. Paraventure the bead mysteriously disappeared from your hand or waist or if it cuts then it has complete it’s job do not fret.
My experience, my own disappeared from my wrist and my girlfriend woke up and discover that hers was off her wrist and was right beside her on the bed. According to the belief, it has complete it’s job for those that believes in the power and potency the beads possess. Like I said at the beginning of these article, If you visit the pages of these sex therapist on Instagram you will see various testimonies of different people that have used it and worked for them. No wonder the madness about it. For some, it’s just another fine fashion item which I kind of belong to that school of thought while some believe it’s for good luck and favours, I am 50% in that category as well.
In conclusion, depending on what you want to see it as it as. But I would say it’s a beautiful stone full of powers to bless whoever believes in it and it is also to adorn the waist, wrist and ankle all to enhance our fashion style.

Just remember to keep your shirt tucked in and add a matching belt to ensure a suitably polished appearance for the office.
2. Oxford Shoes
A lot of men make the mistake of thinking Oxford shoes can only be worn for formal occasions. However, that’s simply not true. When styled correctly, Oxfords can suit a variety of occasions, including those that have a business casual dress code. To wear Oxfords to work, pick a pair in black or brown leather. To ensure you don’t appear overdressed, be sure to avoid patent designs. Of course, if you’re still feeling a little too formal, you can always opt for Oxford’s more casual cousin, the Derby.
The Derby is another classic dress shoe style and an excellent addition to any business casual wardrobe. Thanks to their timeless and minimal design, Derbies work great with a wide range of outfits.

Boots may not be the first shoes that spring to mind when you think about business casual footwear. However, they can actually be incredibly stylish and comfortable and can create an effortlessly refined look.

Since booming onto the men’s fashion scene in the ’40s, Chukka boots have been a staple item for the business bro. Chukkas are a round-toe, ankle boot, with two or three lacing eyelets. Traditionally featuring just two panels, these are minimal and professional shoes that are still stylish enough to add an element of casual cool to your corporate attire. We’d suggest a suede pair in a muted color such as tan or beige. Pair them with your favorite skinny or boot cut jeans or chinos and a polo or short sleeve button down. For the colder months, these shoes also work great with sports coats and casual trenches.
