Stay Forever Gold

The Rachels

Friendship Ambassadors and Co-Authors of Stay Golden, Girls-Friendship is the New Marriage

Rachel Winter & Rachel Steinman

Hi, we’re the Rachels and we’re best friends. From the moment we met back in college at UC Santa Barbara, we knew we were destined to be close-but never knew just how important our relationship would be. For more than three decades, we’ve supported each other through the ups and downs of marriage, children, careers, the loss of a parent, and so much more.

Over time, we started to feel a shift from just having fun with each other and our inner circle of girlfriends to needing and cherishing the time together on a deeper level. In addition to us exchanging gold Claddagh rings (like the O in Golden) with each other and even opening up a checking account together, we value and celebrate our friendship-a relationship like no other. We know women around the world feel the same way about their best friends, love the idea of platonic romance, and just plain love their besties-which is why we are so excited to share this book with you all!

Stay Golden, Girls-Friendship is the New Marriage is a gift book celebrating the bonds of women’s friendships formed by laughter, trust, loyalty, and love. These relationships include mothers and daughters, sisters, and friends old and new. This delightful book includes light essays, celebrity and fun quotes, and vibrant, joyful illustrations. Stay Golden, Girls is a perfect gift for a close friend, mother, daughter, hostess, and every holiday from Galentine’s Day to Mother’s Day to Christmas.

“I want to grow old with you” used to be reserved for romantic relationships, but not anymore. A proposal of a life spent together now includes our friends. Women all over the world are starting to prioritize their relationships with their best friends and living healthier, happier lives while doing so.

Current news stories about groups of female friends buying and fixing up homes to live together in their golden years, divorced women choosing to live together in “mommunes”, and Galentine’s Day, the new best holiday in February, inspired the birth of this book.

Partial Proceeds go to 

Girls Inc. an incredible non-profit that has been around since 1864 and encourages Girls to be “Strong, Smart, and Bold” through direct service and advocacy.

We love hearing stories of friends buying one book for themselves and coming back to buy 5 or 6 for their besties. We also love these amazing endorsements from some of our best friends:

“We are in an exciting time with a real focus on the power of women. Stay Golden, Girls is a gift I want to give every woman I love!”
– Robbie Brenner, Producer of “BARBIE”

“Finally a book that will save you a therapy copay! Grab your friend, this book, and a jewel-toned jumpsuit, and get ready to live your best life.”
– Andrea Savage, Actress and Creator of hit TV Show, “I’m Sorry”
