Bella Umbrella Parasols

US company Bella Umbrella stock original vintage umbrellas and parasols. You can buy or hire parasols for weddings, fashion shoots etc. There's a huge range (the largest collection in the world) from plain to patterned, frilled and double-canopies. Founder, Jodell Egbert has even designed her own Signature Collection of 'new-vintage' umbrellas, priced around A$120. What a lovely idea. I wonder if they'll ship to Oz?

My Daily Fix - Campos and Sunbeam

I don't think I could get through each day without a daily fix of coffee. For me heaven is a cup of freshly ground* Campos Superior Blend extracted through our Sunbeam Cafe Latte espresso machine. In fact, I so need my coffee that today I was looking forward to what I thought was my second cup of coffee until I realised the milk jug was exactly where I left it to dry last night.... wait a minute.... it's 3pm and I haven't had a cup of coffee yet?? No wonder I'm feeling so bad (add to that not enough sleep last night). Whats your daily bit of heaven?

* Ground through the Sunbeam Conical Burr Grinder

Unveiled Bridal Designs

Custom-made veils over the net. I don't even have to leave my kitchen to organise this wedding! The lovely Dorene will custom make your veil - birdcage, blusher, snoog, cathedral, finger-tip and headpiece/comb. Her website is set up with lots of photos so you can go through and pick out all the bits you want in your veil and purchase through her online store. It takes about 4-6 weeks for your veil to be sent to you but you can buy a "Rush Order" where your veil will be made in a week! Check out Unveiled Bridal Designs. Tell me readers, did you wear a veil and what was it like?
