Rose Quartz & Serenity

Pantone Color Of The Year 2016

“For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”

Rainy Days And Mondays Lyrics

C a r p e n t e r s

Talkin’ to myself and feelin’ old
Sometimes I’d like to quit
Nothin’ ever seems to fit
Hangin’ around
Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

What I’ve got they used to call the blues
Nothin’ is really wrong
Feelin’ like I don’t belong
Walkin’ around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny, but it seems I always wind up here with you
Nice to know somebody loves me
Funny, but it seems that it’s the only thing to do
Run and find the one who loves me (the one who loves me)

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it’s all about
Hangin’ around
Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny, but it seems that it’s the only thing to do (only thing to do)
Run and find the one who loves me

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it’s all about
Hangin’ around

Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down
Hangin’ around (hangin’ around)
Nothin’ to do but frown

Rainy days and Mondays always get
Me down

The next step…

 

“WOW what a year it has been for Shut The Front Door! New collections/magazine features/awards and so much more, it’s definitely been a whirlwind! When I decided to embark on the magical journey of creating my own headpiece and accessories line I could only dream that it would be this well received. I love this industry and I am so passionate about beautiful design, fashion and accessories that I am thrilled to announce the next step for Shut The Front Door…

Yearning to learn all I could about the hat industry, I decided to take things to the next level and have been studying Millinery Design for the past two years. This styled shoot is a sneak peek into the world of STFD COUTURE. With my brand new STFD Couture range due to be launched mid 2015 I can’t wait to share this exciting new chapter with you all.”

Once upon a time in a faraway land lived a timid little girl. She dreamed a fairy tale of enchanting beauty where fairies danced and sang and could be seen with little white flowers all up in their hair. Shut The Front Door is the epitome of this magical land today. Timeless elegance and whimsical fantasy are echoed in the bespoke bridal headpiece designs.

Each collection draws on the bohemian stylings of designer Heidi. Revealing her passion for all things eclectic, Heidi’s delicate stylings are juxtaposed against an urban industrial element to add greater depth. The collection’s feminine beauty and grace is empowered by the strength of these masculine qualities.

Heidi’s thoughtful, true designs are intricately hand-crafted with the finest fabrics, Swarovski crystals and French laces with unique individual embellishments.

“Completing my graduate course in Beauty Therapy and Marketing in the UK, I worked in the Beauty Industry for a number of years before training in Wedding Consultancy. I was fortunate enough to be employed to make hairpieces by a talented wedding dress designer on the Sunshine Coast in Australia, and in this role I discovered my flair for creating my own designs. I now work independently. I live in the Sunshine Coast hinterland with my husband, young son, and beloved Chihuahua, Kiki Dee.”
