Podcast Information

Description
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.

Businesses which pride themselves on quality, thoughtful products and experiences are well received by listeners: lifestyle apps, food & cooking, travel, clothing, books, and anything inspired by the French culture.
About the Host
Shannon Ables began hosting The Simple Sophisticate podcast in 2014 as a complement to her internationally read lifestyle blog The Simply Luxurious Life (2009) which focuses on cultivating a life of quality over quantity in every arena of one's life. At age 39 and living in Bend, Oregon, she is outdoors regularly (as she describes it, Bend is her gym - no monthly dues required!) whether it is sunny or snowing with her dogs walking, paddleboarding or cross-country skiing. As well, she travels regularly to the foodie mecca of Portland, Oregon, as a returning lifestyle guru on KATU's (ABC affiliate) Afternoon Live and AMNorthwest programs, and annually flies to France to spend time in the culture that inspired the simply luxurious life concept of living a life of quality over quantity. Shannon is currently working on her second book which will be released in November 2018.

The Simple Sophisticate was so great to work with and outperformed our expectations many times over! They are both a pleasure to work with and professional. We plan to run more episodes in the coming weeks. 5 Star Effort!
