I’m Celia Abernethy. Originally from NY, I’m now living “la dolce vita” in northern Italy and on a mission to live it to the fullest!
After a career in fashion and design school in Milan, I created MilanoStyle.com and later LakeComoStyle.com, to showcase my writing and online marketing skills.
My travel writing and photography has appeared in publications like Huffington Post, Italo-Americano, Wellum, LuxAfrique, La Provincia and Corriere della Sera. You can also find me as community manager of easymilano.com
I have been a professional writer, blogger and content creator for over 20 years. After a career in fashion, then graphic design and web development specializing in UI and UX, today I run my own travel blogs and specialize in online marketing consulting for travel companies. See seotravelcontent.com
As a blogger and travel writer, I get to see and experience a lot of Italy! I can point you in the right direction and share my unique insights and tips with you. Feel free to contact me with your questions or find out more about a personalized itinerary to Milan and Lake Como.
WORK WITH ME
I specialize in travel content featuring Italy travel destinations and culture, but my experience ranges from working in the fashion industry to graphic design, web development and usability. Naturally, I also speak Italian fluently. Let’s talk!
INFLUENCER (through words)
I may be considered unconventional or even “uncool” in today’s online social media driven society; I don’t aspire to being a social media influencer. If I personally influence someone’s decision to go to a destination through my writing, then yes, I suppose I am an influencer. I love to write and share my experiences through words. I also like taking photos and sharing them, but I invest my time in cultivating the craft of writing and carefully planning out a content marketing campaign.
Work with me
All content for milanostyle.com and lakecomostyle.com is produced in-house. I do not accept link exchanges or guest posts for back-links. Please read here about working with me.
