appy 4th of July, and Happy Anniversary to!
Celebrating Three Years of Powerful Beauty at the Bionic Beauty blog!
It may sound a bit odd for me to “wish my own blog a Happy Birthday”, but I think of July as the month when I, and some of my most favorite cosmetics brands, get to turn the tables and give back to you!

I could get a bit mushy here remembering when Bionic Beauty first started- back when the only readers were my sister and me; and now there are over 1,100 of you. (sniffle, sniffle!)

In any case, it’s high time I let you know about the big events surrounding Bionic’s “Three Years of Powerful Beauty” celebration…

Ahhh… the famous Pucci fabrics and designs. Colorful graphics, black lines, and a feeling of luxury and life. That’s what I feel when I see his work… of course, you might think something entirely different. And that’s part of the joy of art!
So why am I going on about Pucci and art on Bionic Beauty? Emilio Pucci has a new limited edition fragrance: Vivara Turquoise. It’s fresh, clean, and modern; without being over-powering.
