Officer Martini crept like a stealthy cat. Unbeknownst to the shop owners Jamyla, HoneyBaby and Pierre I decided to drop in and "check them out." Word on the street was that they had "natural handmade products" that were so good...they instantly made their customers addicted. After researching them online and deciding what products I was going to purchase I made my move. The shop- a clean vanilla box, quaint and bohemian chic I couldn't help but to be impressed with their "front." No sooner than I walked in the door, their trusty sales associate pounced on me like a ninja. His smile and offer to assist me almost made me blow my cover. I carefully tried out their testers. One by one the scents were heavenly. The products felt good and healthy. The packaging effective and sleek. Then HoneyBaby was probably on to me. Holding a small jar of Shine & Define, he squealed loudly and smiled that cute baby smile. I knew I didn't have that much time before he would figure me out. Then Jamyla smiled and complimented me on my hair and asked if I were natural. Quickly I replied :YES.
She asked what method I used to style my hair...I began to panic..maybe HoneyBaby tipped her off...maybe she sensed something was up...I told her my method...she said it looked nice. I smiled and placed my "products" on the counter. Yeah, I couldn't help myself...I purchased two products. The Shine & Define (delectably citrus and coconut scented. Light and airy) and the Juices & Berries (island breezes wafted from its bottle I wanted to sail away). The associate rang up my items...I began to look around for a quick escape...then....then....a 10% discount...a sample shampoo bar. HOW COULD THEY DO THAT?! Oh, they are smarts ones....placing my items in a nondescript brown kraft bag- we said our good days and good byes....but I know I'll be back. I got home and used the Juices & Berries and haven't stopped yet. I must warn you: THEIR PRODUCTS ARE WORTH BECOMING INSANELY ADDICTED. I have over the weekend just opened the containers just to smell them. The cunning couple have their operations online along with funny Youtube vids. Indulge yourself. Tell em Officer Martini sent you.
