How To Wear Your Winter Headband

 A few years back I discovered one of these babies and wore it one day while posting a story on Instagram. There were so many ladies who messaged me to ask me where I got the headband, that I thought "why not sell them on Macaroon Collection?". 

Now, these babies sell like hotcakes .... but I often get ladies asking me how they should wear them. So I thought that in this blog I would share 5 ways I love wearing my headbands....

How to STYLE your UGG boots this winter

How to STYLE your UGG boots this winter

UGG finally arrived on South African shores in 2020 - smack bang just as lockdown started. And some so many ladies rushed to buy themselves a pair of the most coveted sheepskin boots in the world. I personally lived in my UGG boots for the winter of  2020 (and to be honest 2021 as well). 

Now that lockdown is (hopefully) a thing of the past - a few of my friends and clients have said to me "Yes but why would I want slippers for winter if I can now go out of the house?".

The thing is - if STYLED correctly - you can wear your UGG boots out to a variety of places AND with some of the new styles in 2022 - they definitely do not look like "house boots".

5 Bag Styles Every Woman Should Have

5 Bag Styles Every Woman Should Have

Every one of us ladies, or at least 90% of us, have had someone (more often that not a man) say to us "how many handbags does one woman need?". I know I certainly have been asked that more than once. 

 Some of you may know this - but Macaroon Collection was born out of my love for bags. At varsity I was always the girl with the weird bag. I had one made out of coke tins and another made from a pair of frayed denim shorts (I wish I had never given that bag away). There was one that was completely see-through and another which was made from this cool milky-looking plastic. And that is just to name a few. As things stand today - I have a crate full of beautiful bags which I treasure - a hand painted leather bag I bought in Dubai, a tartan handbag I bought in Edinburgh and a beautiful white crocodile clutch from South Africa. 

So yes - bags are my thing!! This week I decided to share with you the 5 bag STYLES I believe every woman should have as part of her basic bag collection.

How to Style your Athleisure

At the end of last year I decided to add a range of Activewear to our ROON collection and I must boast in saying that the range has exceeded my expectations. The quality, the comfort and the versatility is mind blowing. And if i have to be honest - I am a pink and grey set away from having one of everything!!!
I thought this week I would share with you all how I suggest styling your activewear so that you too can enjoy these items as part of your everyday wardrobe. These look come straight out of my wardrobe - so if I can do it.... so can YOU!

5 Cross-Body Bags Every Women Needs

5 Cross-Body Bags Every Women Needs

Growing up, to me a woman had a HANDBAG. That big thing that your mother or grandmother carried that housed everything from the money to the tissues and on occasion plasters as well as the endless supply superC's.

 

This week - I decided that I would list the 5 types of cross-body bags every woman should have - regardless of if you like the Big and Bulky tote bag style. And for ese of reference I am counting down the styles from smallest to largest (not most important to least, as I do believe you need ALL FIVE!

My Granny was Italian. Born in the early 1900s, you can just imagine the beautiful shoes she wore as a young woman in the 1920s and beyond.  As a little girl I recall her saying (on more than one occasion) - "Invest in your shoes because while you can replace your soles, your feet you cannot replace"

And this statement has always been at the back of my mind when buying shoes. That is why, at Macaroon Collection, we sell only the BEST shoe brands. 

I decided for this weeks blog to set out the 5 shoe types every woman needs to have in her closet. Do let me know what you think in the comment section below.
