Today, Feb 19th, marks the launch of the first annual Fierce 50 Campaign bringing together 50 female bloggers over the age of 50 in a celebration on the 50th day of the year! While I don’t usually talk about age on my blog, I am honored to be selected as a member of the group and this campaign.
The idea of the Fierce 50 Campaign is to talk about life and how we have so much to give and still live. Personally, I think that age is just a number. You are as old as you feel, and I feel like I’m in my 30’s! How about you? I’m honored to introduce you to my fellow fashion blogger Shauna Robertson and her blog Chic Over 50. If you want to meet all 50 female bloggers, click here.
Be sure to read all the way to the bottom. I’m also including a weekend sale alert because… shopping!
The Fierce 50 Campaign – Meet Shauna Robertson
Shauna started her blog on a whim….honestly, she didn’t put much thought into it at all. It was just a hobby, just a way of putting some pictures up for her friends to look at for ideas. She had so many friends asking her things like, “can I wear this, am I too old, too fat?”, or “how can I wear this more than one way?”, or “how do I organize my closet?” Shauna also got asked a lot about make-up, skin care, fitness, and hair styles. Robertson started blogging just a little over 18 months ago. As she saw the response, she started taking it a little more seriously, and now here she is…trying to keep up (just like me)!
“It has been fabulous seeing all you AMAZING and INCREDIBLE women out there, inspiring all of us to do better, to be their best selves! I’m feeling more of a responsibility now, to represent who we are. We can influence others in a profound way, and I think most of the time, not even realizing it.” I love how Shauna embraces this with her style. I mean just look at her. I wish I had that confidence, especially with her amazing short haircut. She is radiant!
She continues, “It brings me such JOY when I know I’ve helped someone to feel better about themselves. I’ve gotten emails and messages from all over the world telling me THANK YOU for helping them realize they can do something different, something outside the box!”
Her FAMILY always comes first and foremost before the blog. She’s blessed with three sons and seven beautiful grandchildren. They are the lights of her life and make the world go round. Shauna has seven brothers and two sisters and beautiful healthy parents. She was born and raised in Utah (lives in Salt Lake City), and is a Mormon. It gets better. She also has her own photography business, which is another outlet of her creativity. Shauna is usually found on the tennis court 4-5 times a week, playing for fun as well as competitively. She has been married for 37 years!

You are beautiful inside and out. Age is just a number!

Go Tanya and Shauna:) Fabulous at any age!!!
You are the poster child of what one should look like in their 50’s. Beautiful, in shape, happy, grateful! I could go on and on…
xoxo- Tanya 🙂
Wow!! you look fabulous in the fierce 50 campaign! Should be called fabulous 50!! You look amazing! Love the jean jacket and the blue dress and the one under the bridge.
Thanks for the compliment. Isn’t Shauna beautiful?

Tanya…..how honored I was to partner with you here in this campaign. You’re absolutely a STUNNER! I love your classic sense of STYLE and CLASS! Can’t wait for our next collaboration! XO
It was such a pleasure getting to know you. Love your spunk and youthfulness! More to come…

Thanks for that! It’s just the answer I needed.
I think this is so cool. Congrats. Although I cannot imagine why you wouldn’t be on the list. I think you are very inspiring and although I didn’t know you were over 50 I think that makes it even more special. I look forward to seeing all those on the list.
Great post on Shauna! And this Fierce50 initiative is wonderful! I’m 58 and so glad to meet other fellow bloggers that live their life to the fullest!
I’m proud to be over 50 and people like you showing others that we don’t have to dress like humble grandmas! I like being able to dress nice and fashionable and knowing it is OK! THANKS!
Thanks for the great profile about Shauna. I see her on Instagram but didn’t know that much about her. She’s wearing my favorite “Paris Paris Paris” t-shirt. BTW, I’m a San Antonio girl but my mother lived in Dallas forever! Brenda
Hi Brenda! Your comment is very sweet….THANK YOU! Do you have the PARIS tee too? Every girl needs one or two good graphic tees!!! xo
This teally inspired me! It is already 2018 but it still moved me to kerp it up. I Wish I could be an inspirstion for ither ladies out there over 50 and petite like me!
I so glad I found you! Such inspiration too. My dearest friend and husband died several years ago and I was struggling where to find a place in my life in which to spend my valuable time left here. I decided to ‘reinvent’ myself with you as my mentor. I’m finding my joy again. Got a haircut, went from strawberry blonde to blonde. Lots of positive vibs. Turning 67 this Friday. Thank you for being there.
I’m so glad you are here Nancy. Welcome!
I really enjoyed reading this post. I will be 58 in August and it’s nice to find other women at our age that don’t let age get you down. Rock on ladies!!
I’m so glad that this blog post continues to resonate. Thanks for joining me!
OK, I‘ve always wanted to be Instagram-”big”, too.
Ever thought about what it feels like to be an Instagram Influencer?
Now, imagine that it is Friday and you have just woken up from a sound summer-time nap.
You spring up to check your phone.
Click the Instragram App.
Whoaaa, you think, Over 800 likes on one picture.
Heading to the kitchen, you put the kettle on for some tea and check your Instagram while you wait.
Bam! Another 20 likes.
Ding—a message pops into your inbox from a follower. They’re asking you for advice on how you manage your food, and are congratulating you on your third month of hitting the gym.
The kettle blows and you pour your tea. When you flip out your phone, there’s another message–this time from a young girl–thanking you for posting. She follows you religiously and your’e an inspiration.
Within minutes, your cell buzzes AGAIN.
Oops, another ping. But no time to reply—you’ve got to hit the gym.
Let’s stop the simulation there. People have a hard time getting what they want in life. People can hardly force themselves to eat a good breakfast.
My job is to take people from Instagram anonymous to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds ridiculous, but results do not lie.)
Imagine if you increased your engagement by 100%, or 1000%?
Truth is, it is not the most complicated thing in the world to get more. For example, all the old pros use our website.
In just minutes after posting, you have your images piled with likes.
With this you’ve a big chance to be featured in the “Top Post” section.
Sound too good for reality? Just follow these steps to get a taste:
1. Check out https://tomm.icu
2. Enter your Instagram username.
3. Your 3 most recent pictures are getting 10 – 15 likes. Just like that.
Hitting the Top Post page will 10X your InstaGrowth. But you’ve got to do more than just want it–you’ve got to do something about it. Are you willing?
Chow until next time
