New Year, New Foods, Fashion & Fun

As we tuck away these last few days of 2016, and happily so given the number of amazing icons we lost this year, it’s a great time to go ahead and start getting ready for something new. Never have we ever been so eager to get into the groove of a new year than now. We’re throwing ourselves into the joy that 2017 is trusted to bring with determination to do it well and in kawaii style.

Our foodie friends all over the globe are taking on a new approach to healthy eating. We’re talking fun ways to dress up veggies and be healthier. From the coolest Bentos to the bounciest of veggie noodles and zoodles mixed with luscious sauces and creamy coverings that leave you warm and well fed. We’ll be snuggling up to our friends in Tokyo as they cover the food filled streets of Tokyo festivals for a feast lovers dream. It’s gonna be tasty and we’re gonna eat it!

 

RNG is currently seeking an artist that is eager to contribute to our fascinating minds and imagination. We’ve got tons of ideas to share and we want an artist that can help bring that to life. Is that you? Tell us about yourself. Email us on rainbowsngold.com. We’ll be in touch to discuss our new year with you!

We’re excited to be in the fashion scene of 2017! Join us in celebrating the good life. Find the tee that suits you best from our cute collection on rainbowsngold.com. Our fellow friends and talented icons wear it well and we love and appreciate them for being such amazing people.

The fun has just begun. We’re getting started right now as there is no time like the present to be in perfect harmony with fellow Kawaii minds. The upcoming Atlanta Lolita Tea takes place on the 22nd of January. We’re ringing in the new year with bells and teacups on! Join us in Atlanta! (Insert link), it’s gonna be a truly Kawaii good time an we want to see you there!

Stay cute, stay kawaii and as always let your life be filled with Happy Rebellion!

Colours of Christmas

Let’s just keep it real. It’s okay to wear black on Christmas. There’s no rule anywhere that says your coordinate has to match any colour combination of Santa Claus. The Black Coordinate is the mother of all winter coords in many ways. It can be everything and nearly every kei (put on enough bows and it will be sweet …okay maybe not but you can soften it). Today, Christmas is spent in many ways. There’s the morning gifts by the tree for some, there’s a big dinner with relatives you only see once or twice a year and for others it’s a quiet time in a coffee shop, by a warm flame at home with a loved one or maybe even a movie with friends followed by Chinese food. But for Lolitas…many of us take it to a whole other level. Christmas time is the another day to dress it up and we’re going for an EGL fest with black coordinate suggestions.

There’s this cool coordinate from an ETSY designer. It’s black, it has ace and chiffon and all this and it’s all that and more. For a cool 74.99+ shipping you can wear this with pride. We love it. But look at other shoppes as well. There’s a lot from which to pick.

Here’s where we found this… https://www.pinterest.com/pin/66850375694164457/

We’re also hoping that you’ll feel inspired by the black Tea Party tee from us, RainbowsNGold. Imagine pairing this over a pink long sleeved shirt (or black) which allows the iconic symbols of things like our beloved macarons and tea pots to pop and stand out. You can add dandy shorts or a skirt with this and a few fashionable chains.

Then of course there’s the simple black dress from Elegy. Elegy is the queen of making a black dress look amazing. Be it the babydoll frame Batty OP or the latest from her treasure of dark gems, you’re going to find something that is elegant and perfect for the holiday.

Elegy has the most amazing items to build and or buy a coordinate. http://www.elegyclothing.com – and yes, we’ve mixed our swag with theirs and it looked great!

And you know, if you don’t celebrate Christmas that’s fine. Just put on your favourite black coord and go about your day. Come join us online and let us know how you spend your time this winter. Send us selfies of you in our beautiful black coordinate.

#HappyRebellion (for real)!

Feeling the Energy of the Season

Festivals of light and joy are in abundance. At RainbowsNGold, our cultured circle continues to celebrate everything that we are. This month, several festivals take place. There’s Yalda, a Persian holiday where friends and family recongise ‘the longest night’ or Winter Solstice. Then there’s Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights recongising the miracles that took place at this time so many centuries ago. Following that is Christmas, Kwanza and the Gregorian New Year. So, as you slip into your RNG swag, ready to gather with friends you might ask, “Wait, so…can we celebrate all of them?” The answer is, of course you can!

Gotta have holiday cookies!!

When you fill your life with cultured friends it’s always a win-win. You get to go to all the parties and events. But even if you and your circle don’t celebrate any of these you can still take the time to learn. Part of the Cloud 99.9 experience is one of enlightenment. Educating yourself on what is going on around you and finding the good in it is one of the best ways to experience pure bliss. As you continue to collect coordinates this season and exchange RNG t-shirts as gifts, think about adding a little card or info to your presents. Tell one of your friends about a holiday that they may not know about. Have you ever attended one night of Hanukkah? Now is the time to do it. Slip into your Cloud 99.9 tshirt and head on over to the library or look up the public Hanuakkah celebrations in your town. Or maybe take a friend to see The Nutcracker! It’s a global holiday tradition. It’s also a bold step to be one with your community and those around you and a beautiful way to extend love and appreciation by joining in ceremonies and groups around you.

One of the world’s greatest holiday traditions is The Nutcracker Ballet

Like to sing? Then Yalda is for you. This evening is filled with poetry and thoughtful prose. Slide into your Tea Party shirt and find a community that celebrates the Winter Solstice in the Persian style. Learn about the history of the night and all of its significance. In most Persian communities, tea is a part of everyday life. So bring an extra tea party shirt and share the inclusive message of RNG with your new friends. Again, it’s a bold way to bring together communities. Be that one to start the bonds of friendship that can last as long as these decades old traditions.

Rising into the New Year the RNG Way

RainbowsNGold is a brand with deep roots in thoughts, culture and an eagerness for the good life. Everything on which the brand focuses is bright, bold and embracing. Its uniqueness is embraced by those who are looking far beyond the surface. There are roughly three weeks left in December. We’ll soon be turning over another page to a new year. That moment in time, the turning of the clock is very important and very sensitive to energy. RNG believes in surrounding oneself with the best energy at this time.

On this night, wear your favourite coordinates, an RNG Tee with your favourite skirt, glitterati style fashion and be surrounded with friends. Think about the fun themes we’ve celebrated this year and the concept of Cloud 99.9 being more than just your average cloud 9 experience. It takes you to another level altogether. We made a conscious effort to have fun all year long with visits to extraordinary places and spent time with some of the most incredible people. RNG supported pageants, dancers, designers, photographers and our fellow JFashionistas at tea parties and tons of other great events. We want more of this in 2017, don’t you?

Our community is made up of so many different walks of life. We’re students, parents, artists, entrepreneurs and so much more. Our common goal is the love of the kawaii life and continuing that admiration for all things cute well into mature adulthood. As a community we can find ways to promote and nurture the need for the sweeter side of reality. That’s our goal in the coming weeks. We want to find ways that really embrace and celebrate life as a festival of friendship and fun. As you approach the coming year, share your thoughts and desires for all things good with us. Take a picture, a selfie, a snapshot or share an article that features what you envision in kawaii life in 2017. What do you want to fill your life up with? What amazing moments and new memories do you want to share with friends. Fill up your thoughts with what you want. Share it with us and together let’s make that happen. Grab your RNG t-shirt, join in the movement to make your life as cute as you want it!
