Street Art: Asbury Park Boardwalk

Could there be anything better then being at the beach and seeing street art/murals on the boardwalk? I like that The Wooden Walls Mural Project creates conversation with local, national and international artists. You can see on social media the testament to the power of the work, being shared by thousands of visitors to the boardwalk. Sometimes you don't have to travel far to find new street art.

Each person who looks at the artists work can interpret the mural differently, leading the conversation down different roads. You can also check out the social media channel of the artist and see what their personal message is for that specific photo!



"Love is Paradise" by Indie 184, is filled with pops of color and texture fused with graffiti and street art! Talk about love. Share your love.


The work of Pau Quintanajornet. I love the colors incorporated and that the bottom kind of resembles waves, considering the mural is on the beach!


"Untitled" by Thiago Valdi. Watching over the eye of the storm that hits the beach every summer as thousands of tourists make their way to Asbury Park!


"Heaven and Earth Guardian" by Jose Mertz. With his inspiration coming from ancient civilizations, science fiction, dreams, myths and the super natural he has his own unique style. Much of his work can be seen on graphic tee-shirts, stickers and other installations.


"Ode to the Ocean" by Jeffrey Fulvimari. 13 ladies held together by waves, exactly how the women of today should be. Free to use their voice. Free to be powerful and successful. This mural started 3 conversations in the 10 minutes I was there shooting.

Check out Street Art in NYC if you enjoyed this post. There is something so nice about spotting something whether at the beach, roaming the city streets, or just passing by.




Where have you seen awesome street art while traveling?

    1. Not only is there really cool street art, there are some great shops and restaurants and during the holiday season they have a bazaar at the Convention Center. It's a quick trip by train and one I highly recommend!

5 Reasons To Travel

One of my fondest childhood memories is the family vacations we took every year in August and then again in December. My parents worked hard to provide us with the luxury to travel to different places every year. A cruise to the Caribbean, road trip to Martha's Vineyard, our yearly escape to Disney World those are some of the best memories I have.

Every year I choose to travel to learn about somewhere new. Learning from the locals about where to visit, the best places to eat, and what you can't miss is one of the most valuable tips when traveling in my opinion.


I quickly learned that while I was working in Corporate America, that I needed to fuel my passion on the side. Travel was something that always ignited a spark, took me out of my comfort zone sometimes, and made me feel refreshed when coming home. Taking advantage of vacation days, allows me to travel for long weekends or extended trips. I remember taking a long weekend and visiting San Francisco, a city that almost mad…

4 Must Visit Beach Towns in New Jersey

Festive boardwalks, cozy beach cottages, and miles of family friendly beaches make the Jersey Shore a hot summer destination. Given both the natural( Hurricane Sandy) and unnatural ( "The Jersey Shore" TV show) disasters many question if it is actually desirable, and I will say it 100% is the place to visit this summer. 
Growing up in New Jersey I loved spending summers down the shore as a child, and the older I got, the more I would visit with my friends. Weekends were spent on the boardwalk; eating salt water taffy, fro-yo and fries, partying at the clubs, and playing games, yet never winning. 
Here are my 4 favorite beach towns in New Jersey that I highly suggest you visit. Don't just take my word, here are some other reviews
First up, Point Pleasant Beach, a family friendly beach town. Jenkinson's Boardwalk is home to an aquarium, the Fun House, rides, arcades and so much more. Children can find their parents at Martell's tiki & beach bar, kicking back…

Pirate Republic Brewing Company, the only craft beer of the Bahamas

Breweries are a familiar site in the United States, especially in my home state of New Jersey and the surrounding states; so imagine my surprise when our cruise docked in Nassau, Bahamas and we found brewery a few steps from the cruise terminal. Pirate Republic Brewing Company, home of the only craft beer in the Bahamas is a hot spot for locals and tourists alike. 
As my sister, her boyfriend and I walked off the ship and downtown we knew this was the first place we wanted to stop and got lucky they were just opening when we arrived. The first three at the bar, we had the place to ourselves and were able to learn more about the brewery, how it was established and what it was bringing to the island. The bartender, took the time to share the story behind Pirate Republic Brewery which was founded in 2012 and the first craft brewery on the island.


As you walk up to the front a pirate greets you and you are welcomed into the lower level with a bar, the shop, and some long bar tables. Upsta…
