    This book is like a Bible for women who want to become their best selves. Literally every single topic is discussed and how you can go about improving that part of your life and lifestyle to lead a simple but yet happy and fulfilled life. I was really wishing I had a physical copy of it to underline and annotate. It combines minimalism, Marie Kondo's tyding up and decluttering with choosing quality over quantity in any aspect of your life. Hardly anybody will be able to completely transform themsel This book is like a Bible for women who want to become their best selves. Literally every single topic is discussed and how you can go about improving that part of your life and lifestyle to lead a simple but yet happy and fulfilled life. I was really wishing I had a physical copy of it to underline and annotate. It combines minimalism, Marie Kondo's tyding up and decluttering with choosing quality over quantity in any aspect of your life. Hardly anybody will be able to completely transform themselves over night, but see it more as a work book to go over and over again. I liked the layout of the book a lot, the bold sentences to drive home the important points, even though some of them get discussed repeatedly. I usually hate it when authors repeat themselves, but in this case it added to the value of the book, because the more often you read it the more you internalize the point. I also liked the authors personal choices and experiences sprinkled in between, which made it for an interesting read. I won't ever buy myself a Coco Chanel suit, but as explained in the book, you'll find your own priorities. Altogether I really enjoyed it and I'm thinking of getting a copy for myself to work through and get back to. I'll definitely check out the author's blog as well. Thank you so much to Smith Publicity and Netgalley for providing me with an eARC. All thoughts on this publication are entirely my own.

    The author of Living The Simply Luxurious Life is a blogger. Her blog has lots of lovely photos. Unfortunately, her book does not. It’s really just a list of do’s and don’ts. I’m not sure what makes her more qualified than I am to define the difference between a woman and a girl (a woman doesn’t show too much skin, apparently). In fairness, most of what she wrote was inoffensive, but without any pretty pictures to look at , it just felt like I’d wandered into quite a boring lecture.

Thank you Netgalley and Simply Luxurious for the ARC in exchange for an honest review. We will definitely consider this title for our self-help collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

    For the start of the new year, I thought I'd read an inspiring book full of suggestions about improving one's everyday life, and thankfully I was not disappointed. This is a nice book to return to whenever one needs gentle reminders in order to live more in the moment while savoring the simple things, all without being sickeningly sweet.

    Shannon Ables talks from her heart and her experience about living simply, living luxuriously, and becoming your best self. Her guidance makes sense, is doable, and most of all easy. I especially like how she talks about being single and learning to love where you are in life. She can be proud of this book as it says all the things she talks about in her newsletter and podcast.

I quite like the book, the writing was superb, and the first few chapters hooked me up right away that I had to steal some time in the office to read it. Not that being in the office ever matter when it comes to reading a book lol. Anyway, I like that despite the simplicity, she still insert some lux brands, it seems realistic although it isn't my thing. This book also gives some advices that I skipped since it doesn't concern me, but I believe would benefit many others. The lack of picture/graphic also bothered me. I have no idea whether publisher will insert some pretty things (since this is an arc) or not, but some pics wouldn't hurt. Also, what I found 'bad' inside was when Ables compared 'woman and girl' by making 'girl' sounded so... stereotyping, when on the next page she wrote not to label anyone. I think it'd be enough to say that woman matured and some girls don't.

    Living the Simply Luxurious Life I was first introduced to Shannon Ables through her blog and podcast. I read her first book which was very good but this one is better. I wish that it had been around when I was in my twenties. However, the great part about this book is that it contains concepts that are beneficial at any age. Who doesn’t need to know oneself; identify values; learn to budget time and finances? I would suggest gifting Shannon’s books to all girls on their way to womanhood.

    I wasn't familiar with this author or her blog prior to reading this, her second book. This book contains a lot of great ideas around living a good life. Living within your means and with less clutter, not getting bogged down with unimportant things. It does read like a collection of blog posts however. Overall, I think this has a good message and will speak to a lot of readers. Thank you to Simply Luxurious and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review.

    I bought this to support a local author but I could not finish the book. It was written like a blog with lots of bullet points that were regularly redundant. Also you can tell this is written by someone in their 30s who has not had a wide variety of life experiences on which to reflect. Very simplistic.

    Ok, I want to disclaim that I'd read her first book years ago and loved it. I read it over and over again and since I have it in my kindle I still go through some pages sometimes. It had a point and was actually useful. I finally decided to read this one as well and I was very excited about it because the premises were so good.

I finally decided to read this one as well and I was very excited about it because the premises were so good. Honestly, I've just finished it and I must say I am quite disappointed. Not because the information provided is useless, it's just that the book is waaayyyy too long for the amount of information included because even if it seems like a lot it actually isn't. What I mean is that she could have said the same things in probably half the pages. It dragged forever and I found it very hard to keep my interest awake in concepts that were being reiterated thousands of time just with different phrasing. When, towards the end of the book, I read "tips" such as "never stop learning", "get alone time" and "quality over quantity" I rolled my eyes so much I saw my brain. How many times can a person write about the same thing just using different words?? Countless, apparently. Just to give an example: she manages to include knowledge in yourself as a tip in almost every list throughout the book but even at the basically very end you can still find it: "What does a simply luxurious life means? Knowing yourself" and literally a few pages later we find "how to live a content life? Be a friend to yourself". Really?? Again??? As I said, the concepts themselves were not wrong and I completely resonated with them, but they're also very broad and can be applied to such a varieties of life situations that structuring the book with chapters supposed to cover as many life areas as possibile inveitably led to this. It started out good but became a boring read after a few chapters and I feel that making the book way shorter would have made the information less confusing and gotten the point across much better.

    Yet again, its me reviewing another book written by a blogger. Whilst, I appreciate the writing style, this book was endless lists of in how to achieve in different areas of life.

Further, it felt like a blog post, just endless and made it difficult to read. Some of the lists contained the same information as previous, just slightly rewritten. Taking care of your body through exercise and good food was repeated several times in the same chapter. I understand that this is important, but after the 12th list with the same note it was pretty monotonous. If this was a weekly blog, the repetition would not be so stark, but reading chapter by chapter, the similarities became too obvious not to ignore.

    I liked the concept but Ables goes on and on and on, repeating herself over and over again in 387 pages of blog articles strung together with nothing. Here’s how you live a simply luxurious life, abridged version: 1: Get some sleep on nice sheets 2: take care of your body via food and exercise 3: take care of your surroundings (small house optional but good) 4: be financially savvy 5: buy nice clothes 6: ignore people and focus on your self (not a bad idea) 7: forget societal expectations - create ru I liked the concept but Ables goes on and on and on, repeating herself over and over again in 387 pages of blog articles strung together with nothing.

I just wished she said it in a lot less words.

    I enjoy Shannon Able's blog: The Simply Luxurious Life. This book does have a few good tips and prompts, but the overall approach is fairly basic and is cobbled together from other sources that Shannon has read. Because of this, the book does not give enough detail for how to implement many of its recommendations. For example, in the mastering your career chapter you're told to 'be calm'; 'be resilient'; 'master your mind' without any practical tools for doing so.

Able's does also repeat herself often, so in each chapter I felt like I was reading the same points hashed and then re-hashed in different words. I would recommend going for self-help from the original authors if you'd like to implement real change.

    Marvelous Book! I recommend not only to read it, but to have a paper edition at home. Wish it will be sold in hardcover. Loads of good advices for different life spheres. It happened, that I have not read the first book of hers, this is the second book. But I totally enjoyed it and already purchased the first one and it is on my list to read this year. Thank you Dear #ShannonAbles for your work and time 💗

    Having read Choosing the Simply Luxurious Life I was very much looking forward to reading Shannon’s second book. Whilst I did enjoy Living the Simply Luxurious Life, I don’t think you need to read both books as the basics are covered in her first book. This book and her previous one are not about living an expensive lifestyle. Instead it’s about elevating the everyday moments. From making a cup of tea, keeping the home and doing the shopping. To investing a little more in what you buy so it lasts. Having read Choosing the Simply Luxurious Life I was very much looking forward to reading Shannon’s second book.
