Abelow Public Relations Launches "Luxe For Life" Blog: a Buddhist Perspective on Luxury Lifestyles

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 10, 2009) - A new definition of luxury is being written by travel and lifestyle public relations guru Lorraine Abelow in the new Luxe For Life blog. In weekly posts told from a Buddhist point of view, Abelow shares experiences based on her international travels as the go-to PR agency ( for the world's top resorts and luxury lifestyle. In a unique twist, Abelow's descriptions of the most deluxe destinations on the planet become a jumping off point to express her belief that luxury is not about excess but the richness of life's daily experiences. "Luxury is not a handbag or label, it's an attitude towards life," states Abelow, who has practiced Buddhism for over thirty years.

Abelow infuses the Buddhist teaching of mindfulness into her travels as well as her interactions with family, friends, and business or press contacts. Seeking genuine connections is a central theme to the Luxe For Life blog. Whether on safari in Africa, making dinner with family and friends, or meeting with a client, Abelow strives to be mindful of all activity, people, and places to seek the true essence of the moment.

The Luxe For Life blog also emphasizes the importance of being conscious in life's everyday routines and savoring these experiences as much as any other. "Luxury travel can be a catalyst to obtain a new perspective, but having luxury everyday doesn't have to cost a lot," says Abelow. By encouraging readers to enjoy affordable pleasures, like walking through a local farmer's market and appreciating the intense flavor and beauty of an heirloom tomato, Abelow shows how a mindfulness can turn simple acts into life's greatest luxuries.
