Fountain pen ink samples from Goulet Pens

l’m so excited! I just got my 1st ever order of fountain pen ink samples and a 55ml bottle of Ralph Waldo Emerson Twilight Blue by Organics Studio that I ordered from Goulet Pens

I had to swatch them with cotton swabs because I ordered a glass dip pen from Jet Pens but it won’t be here until Monday. Once I get I will do proper swatches and samples. But I’m super excited to dive into the world of fountain pens and inks πŸ–‹οΈπŸ˜

Here’s a close up swatch of the Ralph Waldo Emerson Twilight Blue

DIY trim and purple hair color refresh πŸ’œπŸ’‡πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

About 2 weeks ago I had used Ion Permanent Brights in Purple to color my roots and refresh my ends. But as you can see in the picture below, my hair had significantly faded and I was left with this faded purple that looked brown in some lights & a faded out purple with weird undertones in other lights. So I decided that since I had a 4 day weekend due to the Thanksgiving holiday, I wanted to refresh my color. I had also given myself a DIY trim using the ponytail method by Manes By Mell on YouTube, which I will link below if you want to check it out.

I used baking soda mixed with 20 volume developer and left on for 30 minutes with a bag to keep in the heat
This was the result after using Arctic Fox Purple AF in my bedroom lighting
These were taken today in the daylight.

These pictures are the before and after a using the DIY pigtail method to cut hair. I also trimmed about an inch off the ends
Here’s the tutorial video for the pigtail technique if you want to check it out

Ion Color Brilliance Brights in Purple πŸ’œ

I just finished coloring my hair with Ion Color Brilliance permanent brights in purple using 20 volume developer & I love the results! I had to take a picture in the hallway of my apartment building to get a good lighting because of the rainy weather we’re having. πŸ˜πŸ’œβ˜”οΈπŸŒ§οΈ
