Sneak Peek at Bionic Style’s Upcoming Color Scheme

Behind the scenes, Bionic Style is getting a complete redesign (finally!) and I wanted to share a preview of the new color scheme…  It’s inspired by my love of deep, dark reds and the bright accents of turquoise.

For readers of my other website, Bionic Beauty, here’s my swatch graphic for both blogs’ redesigns.  Deep purples for Bionic Beauty; and the dark reds for Bionic Style!

I’m fully aware that these color schemes may not be 2013 trendy but I don’t really care. Whenever possible, I honestly try to follow my own heart, style, and mind. And these two color schemes suit me just perfectly.

Keep it cool peeps,

Black Cherry Scrolls Wallpaper

Deep burgundies and super dark reds are some of my favorite colors; yet it’s incredibly difficult to find a simple wallpaper using these colors.  Most of the computer backgrounds online are much too busy for my tastes.   So I solved that problem by creating my own.

Minimal Wallpaper - Black Cherry with Cream Scrolls

Slightly minimal with a super dark burgundy background color and a cream scroll spices things up a bit.

To download: Simply click on the wallpaper image below to open it in full size.  Then right click, and choose “Save As”, then save the .png image to your computer.  Easy as pie!

Happy 47 Day! <0>

This is one of those days I wait for all year!  And yes, I’m quite sure this will further prove my geekiness.  What is so dang special about today you ask?  It’s 47 Day!!

Most people’s follow up question when I wake up announcing “It’s 47 Day!” is: What the *smurf* is 47 Day?   Followed closely by: What the *waffle* is so special about 47?

47 in the TV show Alias

To the majority of earthlings, the number 47 is just another number.  But you’ll start spotting them everywhere once you pay the teeniest bit of attention.   And if you’re a fan of Star Trek, Alias, Fringe, Steven King, Super 8, Cloverfield, National Treasure, Mission Impossible, and/or Revolution (and pretty much any JJ Abrams flick or show), you’ll certainly have spotted more than a few 47s.

If you’d like to round out your knowledge of why 47 is so darn cool, and so frakking special, I’ve gathered some uber-cool links:

Mentions of 47 in Alias episodes ~ this is just a list of mentions in Season Two, but pretty much every single episode of Alias had a 47 mention somewhere! (Side note: This site was designed and managed by me. Please don’t judge the design too harshly since it was created WAY back in 2002 during the days of geocities. Oi vey.)

Wikipedia covers 47 in math (it’s a prime number!), in science, and in pop culture.

And The 47 Society… started by the folks at Pomona College. The 47 Society focuses on the lore and phenomenon of 47 (both at the college and in our day-to-day lives).

So, how will you be celebrating 47 Day???

You Won’t Believe Its Gluten-Free Coffee Cake

Gluten free eating options have improved greatly in the past few years, but one thing that is lacking is coffee cake. They’re either not available, extremely dry, or terribly gummy and flat.

Over Easter weekend, with two Celiac family members in the house, I decided on a whim to try my hand at a Cinnamon-walnut-raisin coffee cake with orange glaze….

And what do ya know? It came out beautifully. If anyone would like the recipe please get on touch through the comments below (or email or twitter me!).

Wishing you many tasty cookies n’ cakes,
