  • Pursuit, Passion & Paying it Forward

     * This March, Stephanie Rado Taormina; founder of Have Some Fun Today will be telling her story at the Women2Women luncheon event at Folino Estate Winery.  A link to purchase tickets for the event can be found below.

     

    Q&A With Stephanie Rado Taormina, Founder & CEO of HSFT:

    What words of wisdom would you offer to other women?

    To believe in yourself & have faith.

     

    What is the most valuable way women can support each other?

    I believe the most valuable way women can support each other is by giving each other the benefit of the doubt. So often when someone is different from us, we tend to be suspicious of their motives, but if we give each other the benefit of the doubt, we are giving them a chance.

     

    Is there an "aha" moment or experience that defines who you are?

    The moment when I had the vision to create with the slogan "Have Some Fun Today." since that day 8+ years ago I haven't looked back, and I feel such a purpose around creating a truly inspiring body of work for all people.

     

    What is your favorite mantra, favorite saying or words that keep you grounded?

    Have Some Fun Today!

     

    What's your mission?

    To make people smile and feel connected to each other.

     

    What do you consider women's main asset?

    The ability to multitask.

     

    What do you consider women's main threat?

    Other people's misperceptions of her.

     

    What three things do you recommend that contribute to your success?

    Belief in myself, being open minded, having laser focus on what it takes to get the job done efficiently and always doing what I say I will do.

     

    How do you want to be perceived / remembered?

    I'd like to be remembered as someone who shared her gifts to bring joy to others and to be a role model for others to break free from limiting beliefs to turn their dreams into reality.

     

    What is the best advice you have received?

    To: Have Some Fun Today - (from my dad.)

     

    You recently shared on social media that you'd like to change things up a bit and include more of what you love. That might include art? Tell us how you realized it was time to reinvigorate the brand / yourself.

    My company Have Some Fun Today was started in 2014 with the idea of a painting I wanted to make. My mind quickly envisioned the painting, then the tote, the pillow, the tees, the hat and so on. All in the span of five minutes one morning while doing my morning meditation. As I developed the brand over the coming months, including the initial pairings, I soon realized that I was stuck on the way the paining were coming out and so I didn't do much with them over the following years.

    Then there was this global pandemic and it seemed like people all over were discovering the artists inside themselves. I had been painting all along, but something moves me to try something again with the words of my brand Have Some Fun Today. Maybe it was the self-work I had been doing, including the therapy I started to do last year. Whatever it was, when I approached my painting with those four words this time in my handwriting, it didn't turn me off! To the contract, something clicked! This time my own handwriting felt just right. Like I turned a corner in my own self-acceptance. The handwriting didn't need to be perfect, it was perfect in its imperfection. Just like me. Just like all us truly are.

    That was a breakthrough. I worked on experimenting with the concept of doing some paintings in my abstract style, with the words Have Some Fun Today boldly written down the middle. I worked for months to find the right formula, and one day not too long ago it all came together. I found the style and it has reinvigorated the brand for me so much so that I am embracing my abstract colorful style back into the designs for the brand in the bags & clothing for 2022.

    You see, I am not a follower. Never have been, never will be. However, when you are making and designing things to sell you do need to balance what people like and want with what you like and want to do. But, now that I have done some substantial laying the foundation of the brand, it's time to be a lot more playful with what we put out there. It's time for color and pattern and some FUN energy in everything we make. Stay tuned.

     

    Please share why you believe W2W is important for the community:

    For a very long time as a creative, I didn't resonate with being an 'executive'. After moving back to Berks County from NYC 25 years ago, I worked for myself for a very long time as a design consultant. It wasn't until my career path changed that I really went past being a Creative and became a Founder. Now that I'm here in the C suite space of my won doing, I have this new awareness that yes, I am an executive and yes, organizations like Women2Women are really important for our community. I've had my head to the grindstone for the past eight years and finally looked up this past October to attend my first Women in Retail Leadership Summit, and what I experienced has opened my eyes to the benefits of hearing what other women in business leadership roles can offer to each other in terms of support & guidance. It is truly a wonderful resource for our community to any woman who utilizes it.

     

    Anything else you'd like to share?

    Just that it is an honor to be noticed by other business leaders in our community for my work and having this platform to share my experience. Over the years I've had many people privately reach out to me to give advice on starting their businesses and I am always happy to listen and give some advice. To me, it is very important to give back whenever I can to my community through the different events we have at Have Some Fun Today that often benefit local charities. Part of what makes what I do so special is that it is a way for people to connect and feel connected. Two strangers passing each other both wearing something from Have Some Fun Today are bound to strike up a happy exchange and your whole day feels warmer and brighter. No other brand does that. I'm not solving the homeless issue (although I'd love to work that someday) or curing cancer, but I am creating a way through my designs that reminds us to reframe our attitude. What you bring to your daily grind is a matter of choice. You can go to work or school with an attitude of drudgery, or you can go with an attitude of "Let's make this fun". It changes everything.

    HAVE SOME FUN TODAY - It's no secret that exercise can be a game changer when it comes to our health and gets us in shape. But it's also key for keeping your "sexy" and your happiness.

    Let's Get It On 

    Exercising three times a week or more is thought to increase our mental health, as the body releases important hormones like androgens when we break a sweat. And that gives us sex drive. According to an article in the Mayo Clinic "Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed."

    Happy and more relaxed is great for our sex life, not to mention increasing our confidence when we feel good about our body. 

    Hey There, Gorgeous 

    Going to the gym, a yoga class or for a run, can boost our mood and help keep us get physically fit. And you might as well look good doing it.

    At HSFT, we're pretty excited about our new athletic wear. Our athletic leggings and HSFT sports bra make the perfect workout partner. They look amazing and remind us to Have Some Fun Today. 

    Look good and feel good. Here's eight other reasons you should get your work out on....

     

    1) Better Sleep  

    Moving the body and working up a sweat gives us a better quality Zzzz's and who doesn't need that!

    2) Reduces Heart Disease Risk Factors

    It's one of the biggest factors in keeping your heart health and is thought to be more powerful than even some preventative medications

    3) It's Better Than Match.com  

    If you're single and looking to meet people, join a gym! You'll have access to a whole new community of people who obviously stay fit and you can check out their "assets" while you're hitting the treadmill.

    4) Athleisure Is Real And It's Awesome

    Yes, athleisure is a thing and it's amazing. There is a whole new level of niche fashion devoted to chic and stylish workout clothes with the perfect fit and comfort AND looking good on you. HSFT has joined the party with our new sports bra and leggings that will be quickly become your favs.

    5) A Better Booty

    Let's not kid ourselves, of course we want to feel better and reduce heart disease but we're not doing this workout thing without seeing a payout. And a perky posterior is certainly fantastic motivation. 

    6) Stronger You

    There's something about feeling strong in your body that shifts our self image. Keeping our physical selves strong and fit reminds us that we can carry the heavy load when life gives us more than we bargain for. 

    7) Improves Memory

    Want help remembering where you left the car keys or your cell phone? Working out has been proven to increase cognitive function and keep our memory sharper. 

    8) Have Some Fun Today

    All that sweat and hormones releasing from the body is a known mood booster and anything that helps you feel better and Have Some Fun Today is legit in our book.

    There's no excuse. Grab your gym bag, (like our HSFT luxe tote) a great workout outfit and you're on the road to a better you.

    HAVE SOME FUNTODAY - You already know how our Have Some Fun Today Luxe Tote looks chic and fabulous on the arm or perched on your shoulder. Remember how we spotted Brooke Shields with one earlier this spring? 

    And Lucky you! This Friday, the luxe tote is 35% off through the weekend. Did you read that? It's on SALE this weekend!! (offer expire 6/26/17)

    The Goods

    Let's recap. It's got raw leather handles, (like the ones you'll find on the high-end fashionista bag from Paris), brass grommets and hardware, and black vegan leather lettering, stitched onto the thickest textured canvas. It's roomy, it's versatile, and it's a showstopper, whether you're lounging at the pool or a resort. 

     

    The Humble Beginnings Of Something Fabulous

    The Luxe Tote is an iconic piece for Have Some Fun Today. One of the first pieces designed by founder and CEO Stephanie Taormina three years ago, the tote solidified the feel of her  then fledgling brand.  A graduate of Parsons School of Design, Stephanie tells the story of returning to New York City and to Parsons, to begin creating Have Some Fun Today. And how the luxe tote was born...  "My first step was to go back to 7th Avenue. There’s a cool kiosk there, right across the street from where Parsons used to be. In that building you can get all kinds of information, if you want to do anything having to do with apparel," Stephanie explains.      (Right: Brooke Shields was spotted with our HSFT luxe tote on her shoulder back in April while on vacation...)

     A Tote Bag Is Born

    "So I went there, and kind of sifted through pages and pages of information that I got. And I found a great handbag manufacturer and they helped me develop the first Luxe Tote, which was amazing," she says. "I found a cut-and-sew shop to help me do the pattern and make the first small round of production."

     

    Still Having Some Fun  

    And the line keeps growing and getting more fabulous. "It still is very simplistic and very elegant and very bold. We're really focusing on sharing this message on a t-shirt, or a sweatshirt, a coffee mug or a tote bag," Stephanie says. 

    "We really want to appeal to a mindset, a mindset of someone who believes in the openness of life, not the drudgery of everyday life... This isn’t an about an age...it’s someone who wants to have a good life, and they are open to inspiration. And that’s what have some fun today is all about..." #hsft
