HAVE SOME FUN TODAY - You wake up in the morning and you choose what to wear. You choose what to have for breakfast, if you want coffee or tea. You choose the music you listen to as your drive to work or as you make the kids lunches. Beach or Lake? Bikini or one piece? Stay or go? Some choices are easier than others. Some would even argue that we choose our mood, and our vibe. Good day or bad day?
Let Freedom Ring
Our day begins with choices and the freedom to make them. And freedom is a pretty cool thing. We love in a country that affords it's people freedom. For expression, for art, for politics, for gender and for who we choose to love. These are things we have freedom to choose. And this is not true for many places around the world.
Free To Be You And Me
This Independence Day weekend, we choose FUN. Have Some Fun Today was founded on the principal of choosing to have a good day. And that's a pretty awesome way to live. Find some FUN. Take a chance, look for the silver lining and Have Some Fun Today.
A Living Legacy
Our founder and CEO's late father said those words to his children, family and friends every day when he was on this planet. He passed on his legacy to his family and it lives on with Have Some Fun Today.
We want you to see our cool tee shirts, totes and mugs and think, "Yeah, that's the way I want to live today!" It's a mindset that we have the freedom to choose.
Ride The Wave Of HSFT
Want fireworks in your life? Decide everyday that you choose it. Maybe it's a beautiful sunset or receiving a random act of kindness. Maybe it's lunch with an old friend or maybe it's making a new one. It's a freedom we're afforded by simply choosing to find the magic, find the spark and find the Fun. It's a vibe you can catch, every single day. HSFT!
So celebrate your freedom this Fourth of July with the wind in your hair, your toes in the sand or a sparkler in your hand. However you celebrate, choose to be happy!

Happiness is spending time with happy people. Want more happy? Hang out with people who are all about it... it's contagious!
Happiness. Choose it.
HAVE SOME FUN TODAY - There is a theory about happiness that basically says, it's a choice. Like, you wake up every day and just simply check the box "Happy" over the one called "Unhappy". And while we do think there are always exceptions, we think this is a pretty powerful way to manifest some positivity in your life.
C'mon Get Happy
The idea is simple and operates under the premise that we all have plenty of reasons to be happy or unhappy. It's like choosing chocolate or vanilla ice cream. You just choose one. At HAVE SOME FUN TODAY, we choose happy. We make it a conscious choice every day and if we need to throw on our Original Crop Tank to remind ourselves, then hell yeah, we're always down for that.
It's Science, Baby
Your thoughts are energy! You actually create physical energetic matter when you have a thought. Physicists call it a Quantum Event. That's powerful stuff. And what we create and what we put out there attracts more of the same. Happy breeds more happy.
"Every time you think a thought, you send out that thought's specific vibration. If a thought makes you feel good, if it's a "positive" thought, it is vibrating at a higher frequency. If a thought makes you feel bad, if it's a "negative" thought, it's vibrating at a lower frequency." -Melody Fletcher of Deliberate Receiving
Happiness really is a state of mind. And there are lots of ways we can get there. Here are three ways to help cultivate more of it:
1) An Attitude of Gratitude
For 30 days, write down three things a day you are grateful to have in your life. Three tangibles that you truly appreciate having. This is less about being a good person and more about being aware of positives and not all the negatives. When we start to focus on the positives as a habit, we create a new pathway for positive thoughts.
2) Work It All Out
It's been proven time and again that there's science to our workouts. Endorphins, dopamine, hormones, -all this stuff in our body chemistry shifts when we exercise and it's the stuff that makes us feel good.
3) Shiny, Happy People
Find some. Spending time with people who are generally happy and have a positive outlook is actually a huge influence on us. Positivity and good vibrations really are contagious, so surround yourself with happy people and chances are, you'll get happy, too.
Live, Love, Be Happy
Need a little more happy? We highly suggest starting with a super chic reminder like our HSFT t-shirt or our luxe tote to keep you in the right frame of mind. One thing we know for sure at HSFT is that life is too short not to have fun and joy. Our mantra, Have Some Fun Today, is meant to serve as that little nudge to stop and enjoy.
Whether it's finding a little silver lining in your day or a big piece of FUN, live your life with the intention of having "happy". There will always be low points and always be struggle, but there will also high points and ridiculously yummy parts. Life does not offer us a do-over. So happy? Yeah, we got happy. Do you?

At HAVE SOME FUN TODAY, our simple philosophy and brand mantra means to capture each day with open eyes and an open heart. We try to see the beauty all around, find the FUN by being open to life and the possibility around us, every day. You can't do that if you don't feel your best. Something as simple as drinking water and keeping hydrated can ease tension, fatigue, muscle cramps, aid digestion, help kidneys detoxify the body, and sharpen our brain function.
Drink up, Beautiful
We all know that water is essential to our survival, we need it for our body's basic functions. But when we shortchange our body the water it needs, it directly affects how we feel and how we look. Studies vary on how much we should drink, but it's common knowledge most of us don't drink enough. Some experts suggest that we should drink at least half our weight in ounces. So if you weigh 140, you'd drink a minimum of 70 ounces of water daily.
Drinking water is the most powerful tool we have in our beauty arsenal. Hydrating the body feeds the skin and skin is our largest organ! Drinking enough water gives us improved texture and skin color and helps promote cell regeneration. When we don't drink enough, our skin will literally show it with dull, dry skin and more pronounced wrinkles.
I'll Drink to That
Studies have shown that even mild dehydration can alter mood, decrease memory and reduce brain function. Make it a habit to take your water with you. We are never without our HSFT water bottle, (part of our new gift line on the website!), which fits perfectly in the gym bag, purse or car drink holder. When we feel good, we do good, and share good. It's infectious. So grab your water bottle and get happy. Never underestimate the power of feeling your best. Cheers!
