Spring Haul!

Raghda here! I've missed you guys!
Y'all know what else is here? Spring! In celebration of the warmer weather, I'd like to share some of my recent purchases with you. :)
Might want to get a nice cup of tea and have a seat, cause this is a long one :P
I'm still getting the hang of making vids, so feel free to leave advice and don't forget to comment and like if you want more. :)
Stay stylish, guys

Meaning behind Aldo bracelet
"Disks or balls, consisting of concentric blue and white circles (usually, from inside to outside, dark blue, light blue, white, dark blue) representing an evil eye are common apotropaic talismans in the Middle East, found on the prows of Mediterranean boats and elsewhere; in some forms of the folklore, the staring eyes are supposed to bend the malicious gaze back to the sorcerer.
Known as nazar (Turkish: nazar boncuğu or nazarlık), this talisman is most frequently seen in Turkey, found in or on houses and vehicles or worn as beads.
A blue eye can also be found on some forms of the hamsa hand, an apotropaic hand-shaped talisman against the evil eye found in the Middle East. The word hamsa, also spelled khamsa and hamesh, means "five" referring to the fingers of the hand."
