Find your joy. A short three-worded sentence that holds so much power and potential. What does it mean to find your joy? How do you find it? What makes this world so wonderful is that we all find our joy in different ways, shapes and forms. How do I find my joy? Through traveling the world. Who helps fulfill my joy while traveling? The amazing company of Joycoast.
When I first stumbled upon Joycoast, I immediately fell in love with all their wooden masterpieces. The magnificent people of Joycoast design and create all of their watches, sunnies and accessories from beautifully curated wood. The overall theme behind their products: “Inspired by nature and fueled by fun.” I genuinely could not agree more with this catch phrase! It 110% fits my travel motto and mission.
What are some key qualities behind these nature fueled products? That every piece is unique, fun and comfortable. As a traveler who, for the past few weeks, has been utilizing both a pair of sunnies and a watch from Joycoast… I can whole-heatedly confirm that their products are, in fact, unique, fun and comfortable. Let’s dive a little deeper…
I have the women’s Bambusa bamboo wooden watch, along with the Malcom wooden sunnies. The second I took a glimpse at both products, I knew right away that they were both unique and fun!! I mean, they are made from natural wood!! It doesn’t get more fun than that! And the second I slipped the sunnies on my face and the watch on my wrist, I was in comfort Heaven. But let’s dive even deeper into each individual product.
First up is the Bambusa watch. This delicate, heartfelt watch is the perfect time-telling piece for any female traveler. It’s incredibly lightweight, which makes it an absolute delight to wear. Many times, I even forget I’m wearing it! The light color of the wood, gives off a positive vibe and I smile every time I wear it. I truly love this watch for the travel lifestyle because it sincerely gives off an adventurous feel. Adventure is always out there!
A quick pro tip here: when you receive your watch in the mail, it will NOT be custom sized. The watch comes with a handy, dandy tool where you can take out as many wooden links as you need to find the perfect fit. It’s so easy!! Not feeling comfortable with that? Just head to your local jewelry store and they can help you out!
Second, there are the eco-friendly Malcom sunnies. They are crafted from Red Rose Wood, and I absolutely love these babies! Not only are they so effortlessly chic, but they offer great eye protection, as well. These sunnies have UV 400 protection, which blocks 100% of harmful UV rays. Health and safety first! The lenses are polarized to offer fabulous clarity, and like the watch, they are incredibly lightweight and comfortable. The sunnies come in a smooth cloth case, accompanied by a cloth cleansing wipe. But don’t plan on your glasses getting too beat up, dirty or scratched, as they are hard coated for ultimate resistance to damage!
While the stunning products of Joycoast can’t be beat, there’s a little more to this company that makes me love them so much. Directly from the company itself, “Joycoast is not just a brand or a watch. Joycoast is a lifestyle. A FUN lifestyle! We could be a super serious corporation with strict policies and guidelines, but that is boring.” When I first read this, I honestly started laughing so much because I thought it was so awesome! I instantly knew this was a business I wanted to support.
To go along with the fun lifestyle of their company, Joycoast has impeccable customer service. Besides being the friendliest people on the planet, they truly care so much about their customers. As they say, “If you're not happy, neither are we. Contact us and we promise to make you happy.” I have NEVER seen a company have such a loving approach to their customers.
Another fabulous aspect of their customer service: their WHATEVER guarantee. If you break your product within 45 days, they will replace it free of charge. After 45 days, they will give you 40% off. They also offer a manufacturer warranty in case of any defect, for 12 months.
Joycoast traveled with me throughout Portugal, Morocco, Tanzania and South Africa. I have so many memories of a lifetime in these beautiful countries, and Joycoast made each and every one of these memories even more spectacular. Let me share my favorite memories from each country and how Joycoast played a magical part in the experience.
First up on the travel agenda was Portugal. My favorite memory here? Frolicking along the extravagant coastline of the Algarve region. Picture the most breathtaking sea cliffs set atop crystal blue waters, and you have exactly where I was. It was so surreal taking in the vast views and just appreciating the moment in which I was in. With being on the coast, the sun was also ablaze, and I was so grateful to have my Joycoast sunnies with me! Not only did the sunnies protect my eyes, but they helped me see, with clarity, all the nature that was before me.
Next up was the hustling and bustling Marrakech, Morocco. Let me just say, I have never been anywhere like Marrakech. It was a sensory overload of constant noise and vibrant colors, but I loved every second of it. There was a lot on the itinerary for this portion of the trip! One theme that prevailed for each adventure… YOU COULD NOT BE LATE. Well, thank goodness I had my trusty and timely Joycoast watch. Time was of the most essence for my favorite camel excursion!! There was a very specific time frame for this excursion, and there was no way I was missing it! It was my absolute dream to ride camels in Morocco, and I’m so glad I could make my dream come true!
My favorite destination on the trip… TANZANIA. Embarking on a traditional African safari… there are no words. I am already planning on when I can go back. There is just something so pure about seeing majestic animals like giraffes, elephants, lions, leopards and zebras roam freely in the Serengeti plains. It is my hope that each and every one of you can experience something like this in your life. And I was so happy that Joycoast was there for me along the way. There’s not much shade from the harsh sun in the middle of the Serengeti, so my sunnies came in clutch! Not only to protect my eyes, but to help me see all the wildlife in the best light and clarity possible.
And last but not least, South Africa. The main attraction here? The penguin colony on Boulders Beach, of course! I thought it was so surreal to see so many wobble-like friends in one place! My beautiful bamboo watch came in so handy here because I was always checking the time to see when the best time to see my little friends would be. What did I find? The best time to visit was at sunrise and early morning. AND... you can’t beat the beautiful sunrises! Don’t be afraid to get in the water with these little guys too!! They’ll swim right around you, and they are just too funny playing in the water!
I hope you can see just how much I love the products and the people of Joycoast. It can be so difficult, these days, to find products that are created in a sustainable fashion and of great quality; along with coming from a company of high standards and morals. Let me just reiterate, again, that Joycoast does this and then some more!! I highly encourage you to check out Joycoast, and bring some of their products into your home.
Thank you so much, Joycoast, for working with me and gifting me these sunnies and watch. All thoughts and opinions are true to me and my own.
Don’t forget to pin me!!
