I have been listening to Kimberly’s podcast since her 18th episode. Her casts have lead me to so many valuable resources; from choosing my life coach, to business information. I find her information as helpful and relevant today as then. She helps me lead a more aware, informed and graceful life. Thanks, Kimberly, for your dedication and for maintaining the quality of content you put out in the world. ~SA

I've been listening to Kimberly's podcast on and off for several years but in the last few months it's become a MUST LISTEN for me. The variety of topics and guests is wonderful and Kimberly's sincere upbeat manner is very inspiring. There are a lot of people in this podcast space and I think she is "the real deal".

Guest: Shannon Ables

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), and her second Living The Simply Luxurious Life: Making Your Everydays Extraordinary and Discovering Your Best Self (2018).

What does living simply luxuriously look like?

"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 also shares inspiration and tips on how to curate your very own simply luxurious life on her iTunes podcast The Simple Sophisticate which airs each Monday, pairing intelligent living with signature style. The Simply Luxurious Kitchen vodcast (video series) began where Shannon steps into her own kitchen using seasonal fare to elevate the everyday meal.
