What does living simply luxuriously look like?
Shannon defines it succinctly in her mission statement which kickstarted her lifestyle blog, The Simply Luxurious Life:
The simply luxurious life is something I believe every one of us can attain if indeed we are seeking quality over quantity, sensibility rather than frivolity, personal style instead of trendy fashions and a truly fulfilling life instead of being led around by the nose, thereby creating a life of true contentment.
Shannon Ables is the founder and editor of the internationally recognized lifestyle blog The Simply Luxurious Life (est. 2009) which inspired her first book Choosing The Simply Luxurious Life: A Modern Woman’s Guide (2014). In 2018, she published her second book Living The Simply Luxurious Life: Making Your Everydays Extraordinary and Discovering Your Best Self, and in 2022, her third book became a #1 New Release and #1 Bestseller in France Travel, The Road to Le Papillon: Daily Meditations on True Contentment.
Shannon also shares inspiration and tips on how to curate your very own simply luxurious life on her podcast The Simple Sophisticate which airs on the first and third Wednesday of each month, pairing intelligent living with signature style.
Inspired by her love of France and a seasonal, yet simple (and always delicious) approach to cooking, premiering each September is her cooking show The Simply Luxurious Kitchen which premiered in 2018.
And as the British culture and everyday pastimes of savoring a Cuppa and pottering in the garden have long captured her penchant for enjoying everyday moments and Mother Nature, TSLL’s Annual British Week takes place on the blog the third full week in May (est. 2019), and for Francophiles, the second week in August marks TSLL’s Annual French Week (est. 2016), the two most beloved times of year on the blog for readers.
