The simple sophisticate is someone who prefers quality over quantity, sensible living over mindless consumption, personal style instead of trendy fashions, has an insatiable curiosity for life’s endless questions and a desire to live a truly fulfilling life rather than being led around by the nose. Inspired by her lifestyle blog The Simply Luxurious Life, Shannon Ables (the original Simple Sophisticate) shares with listeners tips on how to live a refined life on an everyday income. From achieving your goals, preparing a memorable meal, creating a capsule wardrobe, traveling the world (Francophiles tune in as Paris is a favorite destination), and living life to the fullest without breaking the bank, living well is really quite simple.

Enjoyable to Listen To

A charming and relaxing listen. I enjoy the shows with recommendations as well as her cooking show. Love to hear Shannon’s stories about Bend, OR, because I would love to live in the Pacific Northwest, but my husband is a sun worshiper and would never manage with the overcast and rainy weather. Recently enjoyed her trip to San Francisco episode. Though would have liked to also hear about the rich Asian culture that is such a big part of the city. Even though I too am a Francophile, there are also simple luxuries in other cultures as well. Perhaps on the next trip to San Fran!
