Hi, I’m Wendy!
I’m an island girl. Born in the Caribbean, in the beautiful Dominican Republic. Part of my views on nature, enjoyment of life, family values, dance-style, and personality, comes from my Latin-Caribbean culture.
Since a very young age, I was an avid reader. My dad used to read us stories from his traditional literature encyclopedias, and I used to love each moment. When we first came to the US, I gave all of my clothing to my friends, to create free space on my luggage and bring my dad’s collection of old books instead. On the Books section on this blog, I intend on sharing my favorite old and new books among paperback, Audible and Kindle.

New York City
I loved New York City immediately, but it was not until my college years when I began exploring this beautiful city. I remember buying an NYC tour guidebook as a Freshman student, a subway map and taking the NJ PATH train to the city, to explore all the famous landmarks and boroughs. New York City is a place that I cannot help but be passionate about. I want to share a bit of its energy, art, exciting events, and beautiful architectural places in this category: New York City.
“Now you’re in New York.
Big lights will inspire you.”

WithLoveWen.com encompasses a stress-free lifestyle, with an emphasis on health, natural-beauty, inspirational-books and places to explore. Blogging is the category for those new bloggers, interested in recreating a similar style of a blog as WithLoveWen.com. I share some of the tips learned as a new blogger.
My journey is coming from a different industry, and taking online classes of Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Google Analytics, Digital Marketing, Google AdWords, Creative Writing, fundamental Graphic Design skills and necessary photography skills to become a freelancer. I am now proficient navigating WordPress and understand essential metadata and web-coding skills.
The most significant lesson from blogging has been starting out as a daily journal and turning that passion into online content-marketing space, where I share the things I honestly love with my subscribers and followers, and I describe them from the perspective of a consumer. There is so much to learn, share and explore.
“Digital marketing is here to stay.”
Lifestyle is the general corner of this blog. In here is where I reflect my sense of style: I prefer to invest in classic pieces that I will keep for years, the elegant comfort of some feminine dresses, perfumes and using natural beauty products. I walk a lot and carry either a camera or a laptop. Therefore, comfortable clothing is essential on my style, but without sacrificing feeling pretty.
“Simplicity is the keynote
of all true elegance.”
– Coco Chanel
Beauty: I’m a lipstick and mascara addict. My makeup is basic. I make an effort maintaining and repairing my skin. I believe in improving my skin instead of covering imperfections. Self-love also means loving the skin I am in. Therefore, I’m a fan of skincare: facials, body-scrubs, excellent products with organic ingredients and homemade beauty masks.
“Invest in your skin
it’s going to
represent you for a
very long time.”
The section on travel will be for places outside of the New York City area. I’m pretty excited about the new content, and it will push me to practice new photography skills and improve to another level.
The wellness category will probably contain the most posts because health is my number one priority now. We all live in a chaotic world over-saturated by pollution, radiation, excessive stress, GMO foods, bad vibes (energy affects our health as well), and unhappiness. Lifestyle, beauty, wellness, and books are the categories, where I share my new discoveries into making my mind, body, home, spirituality and my world a better place.
“Inner beauty should be
the most important part
of improving one’s self.
