Featured Tranquilista: Shannon Ables is the creator and editor of The Simply Luxurious Life blog, as well as a freelance writer and high school English teacher.  Writing has always been a part of her life, and she is thrilled to be able to use it expose her other passions - fashion, wine, food, design, gardening, travel and anything French.

Being a stylish young woman living in rural Oregon, she is constantly seeking ways to enjoy the luxuries in life. Having moved from the metropolitan life in Portland, it at first seemed that her pleasurable passions were not as readily at her fingertips as they once were.
However, she have come to realize that luxury is always in each of our proximities if only we know where to look, regardless of where we might be living. Whether it be found in wine, food, fashion, home decor, gardening, or entertainment, contentment, pleasure and a stylishly fulfilling life can be cultivated.

1. How can I practice simple luxury this week?

Signature Style: TranquiliT is a line of layers in rayon made from organic bamboo. We are locally sewn and plant 150 trees each month while also donating a portion of proceeds to Nest and Tranquil Space Foundation. In honor of a recent feature on convertible clothing in the New York Times, our featured piece is the flare jumpsuit. Tres versatile, chic, and fabulous.

Thanks for another great podcast Kimberly, found it a bit hard to hear Shannon sometimes (could just be that I need some new headphones).
