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!
