The new RICE collection Autumn / Winter 2018 is now available!

Life is better in Color – This quote by an Argentinian artist, whose work Charlotte von RICE discovered on her trip to Argentina could also be one of Charlotte’s own quotes. Because life is indeed better in color! Colors are cheerful, colors make people happy. In short, color means love. RICE has always lived by this and will continue doing so. Therefore the new Fall / Winter collection 2018 by RICE runs under the motto Life is better in Color to bring as much colour into the world as possible.

We’re excited about all new products, especially the six beautiful new designs. Whether it is enchanting hanging flowers, ferns or beautiful chervil, the new floral designs will delight all fans of flowers and nature. A wonderful peacock design and cheeky zigzag and leopard patterns are part of the new collection and will make everyone’s hearts beat faster. There’s the perfect pattern for everyone! Kids will also be delighted to discover the new dinosaur and rainbow prints.

The new collection offers many beautiful things that will make everyday life more colorful and pleasant. Among them, of course, you will find the popular RICE melamine tableware for young and old, but also convenient items for your home such as kitchen helpers, bathroom accessories, storage baskets, etc. Further, the wonderful RICE travel series including various bags, trolleys, laptop bags, packing pouches will help you being more organized while traveling.

Of course the winter collection has to include the RICE Christmas Special. This year it’s all about adorable angels on floral designs. This fantastic pattern will definitely put you in a festive mood.

Awesome tattoos by Djeco und Rexinter. For really cool kids!

Awesome tattoos by Djeco and Rexinter. For really cool kids!

So finally it’s getting warmer outside and people are wearing short sleeves again. That also brings out the most diverse tattoos. Emil is always very excited about all the colorful pictures. Recently a friend of mine came around and she has a “sleeve”. A sleeve means that her entire arm is full of tattoos. Our mini-boss was stunned. So many cool motives. Thus my girlfriend had to show him each and every one and patiently had to explain what they meant. After that Emil was positive: He had to get one as well. His beloved football for instance would look great on his forearm, he thought. Well Emil, let me think about that idea for a second… NOPE!

Cute tattoos for kids. Pretty little things and animals.

No real ink on Emil’s skin for another couple of years. But, of course, I didn’t want him to be sad either. So I got him some kids’ tattoos  from our online shop.

Djeco glittering tattoos. Rainbows and unicorns.
Unicorn and rainbow fans will love these Djeco tattoos for kids.

So we do have really cool tattoos by Djeco in the assortment now. When Emil saw them, his football tattoo was forgotten right away. There are fun ones with animals and other cool motives, glittering rainbows and unicorns as well as Jenni’s funky jewels in neon colors. The Djeco tattoos are all colorful and will be fun for both girls and boys. All of them are dermatologically tested and suitable for kids age 3+.

Jewelry tattoos for kids.

Rexinter also offers cool tattoos for kids. And that is the cheeky monsters! The cute monsters come in different colors and sizes and with their bright colors they are a real eye-catcher. Let’s have a little monster party!
