I’m Viennelyn Maier, the Founder and Creative Director of With Love, Vienna Lyn. Though I was born in Vienna, Austria, I’m currently based in the San Francisco Bay area, and I’m always looking forward to my next adventure.
I started this blog for women like you and me: women who have done exciting things but are hungry for more.
Tell me, does any of this sound familiar?
Your dreams of traveling across France are put on hold when a big promotion is on the line. Dressing like a Pinterest board comes secondary to what’s at the front of your closet—waiting for your two weeks of paid vacation a year to feel like you’re living.
Trust me, I’ve been there and gone through all of that. I’ve had those same feelings of being stuck and uninspired. And I wanted to do something about it.
Women like us know there’s more to life than the ins and outs of our daily routine.
We want to do, have, and be it all—and not feel like we’re asking for too much for saying so.
Before launching With Love, I spent more than 14 years building my career in tech in Silicon Valley. I spent my days refining my expertise in social media and marketing.
See, every time I visit Paris, I come home refreshed and inspired. Now, I work to bring elements of their culture into my life—things like fully enjoying my experiences and savoring even the smallest moments.
I want to live my life to the fullest and to take chances on new opportunities. I don’t want life to pass me by.
And I don’t want that for you either.
On With Love, Vienna Lyn, you’ll find honest advice that you can trust. From work dilemmas and fashion lookbooks to tried-and-tested recipes and travel guides, our goal is to inspire creative, stylish, and ambitious women like you to pursue their dreams.
This blog was born out of a love of luxury fashion, the French lifestyle, world travel, and a passion for helping the modern woman become the best version of herself, whatever that looks like for her.
I want to give our readers the tools you need to feel confident choosing your path. I want to share my secrets and the lessons I’ve learned. I want to get to know you for who you are—and for the woman who you’re going to become.
And no matter where you are in the world, I want you to feel like you and I are sitting together in a cafe in the 6th arrondissement of Paris. Take a seat—I poured a glass of Bordeaux just for you.
