  • HAVE SOME FUN TODAY - Recently, a few of us were sitting around the HSFT studio and brainstorming what to call ourselves. See, there's this community of people that have gathered around this brand with soul, and it's really been amazing. They've become the HSFT vibe. They've become part of the brand and inspiration. "Squad" seemed a little juvenile and overused, "Tribe" is taken, "club" seems like we need a secret handshake. We couldn't land on the perfect word to describe our community.

    Who We Are

    Like-minded and eclectic,  we're connected as much by what makes us different as what makes us the same. We're movers and shakers, designers, artists, writers, thinkers, and glass ceiling breakers. We're all someone's daughter and someones friend, some of us are moms and wives, sisters and aunts. 

    Somewhere along the way, I jotted down Soul Circle. I was thinking back to a time when sewing circles were a thing, when women would gather because of a task at hand and would connect over so much more. And our founder, Stephanie Taormina, has always called this a brand with soul. A company that was born from the legacy of her late father's mantra, Have Some Fun Today. You don't get much more soulful than that. 

    Whatever it is, it's proved to be powerful and palpable. And a little bit magical. HSFT has become it's own thing and has a different meaning for everyone. 

    You Can BE HSFT

    So it's not an exclusive club or a members only kind of a thing. We decided it's a mindset. It's a philosophy that we hope everyone will embrace, to really try to Have Some Fun Today. And what does life look like if we're trying to have a little more FUN? It's a shift in how we live, how we think and what possibilities we open up to. And the best part is, that's FREE. 

    Yes, we have amazing products like luxe t-shirts, totes, hats and pillows with a daily reminder of finding the beauty in life everyday. But you don't have to wear the t-shirt to own the vibe. 

    We're creators, who were inspired to create something, that inspires others. Hopefully it inspires you. We think it's sort of contagious and that we need more of it in the world. 

    Pop Up Shop For The Arts 

    Join us at our HSFT Studio today for a Pop-Up Shop from 12-3 with proceeds going to Art Education and Outreach. We love supporting our community and the things that make this world a better place. 

    Positive Vibes  

    We wanted to create something that changes the world; a mindset of positivity and love. Our shirts, hatshoodies, and gifts are designed to share the vibe. You can host an HSFT party and share the goodness with friends in your home OR join us at one of our HSFT Pop-Up Shops or our in-Studio Events.  Life is what you make it, so make it FUN. #hsft

    You Like Us, You Really Like Us!

    HAVE SOME FUN TODAY - It started with four words on a t-shirt; words that were said by a late father to his family. What happened on the way to creating a legacy of a father's love was the birth of a grassroots brand. A company with soul. Along our journey to making cool tees, luxe totes and amazing gifts, we discovered a community of people who "get it". You got it! You got the vibe and the essence of Have Some Fun Today.

    Your Daily Pep Talk 

    Those four words are so much more than our cool t-shirts. It's now become a mindset. A philosophy, a little slip of paper in the fortune cookie of life. HAVE SOME FUN TODAY. It's a call to action to make your life FUN, even in the most mundane or challenging of moments. It's a reminder to push yourself outside of the "the box" and see something you've never seen before. It's the simplest of things but the impact is profound. The Law of Attraction is pretty basic. You get what you give. Why not try putting positivity and possibility and FUN into your world today? Why not Have Some Fun Today?

    It's All How You Look At It

    Not long ago in our studio, from a brainstorming sessions about HSFT, our founder Stephanie Taormina came up with a simple phrase that encapsulates perfectly what this is all about. A Brand With Soul. She couldn't possibly know that a vision of a painting would turn into all this two years later. But this is a brand with depth and connection. We're interested in changing the way we look at life, not just selling a t-shirt. We're pushing a mindset. And that doesn't cost a thing. 

    It's All About You

    Yeah, we make great t-shirts, totes, and gifts emblazoned with those four words, but it's become so much more. You've joined us on our path. You've shared your HSFT stories, your experiences and why you love the brand so much. You have become part of us and that is truly inspiring.

    As we grow and expand the business, so too, does our community. More amazing people are becoming part of our Collective Inspiration. We want everyone to be part of that. Our Community is a beautiful patchwork quilt of all these HSFT people, like you, and experiences that are re-defining what we are everyday. You could say it's taken on a life and breath of it's own.

    There's Always Room For More

    We love what our HSFT  Community has become. Haven't jumped in yet? Know someone that should? Share The Vibe. It's simple, really. Be Adventurous. Smile More. Be Grateful. Be Confident. Spread Happiness. Have. Some. Fun. Today. You can buy our luxe t-shirts, cool trucker hats other HSFT gear, but the magic of HSFT is that that it's free. #SharingHSFT

  • How A T-Shirt Can Make Your Day

    It may just look like a t-shirt, but at HSFT it's also a state of mind. HAVE SOME FUN TODAY is emblazoned on all of our fabulous shirts and accessories and it's the guiding force behind everything we do at HSFT. So how can a t-shirt make your day? 

    See The Light  

    Life can be pretty intense. Sometimes we need a reminder to lighten up. And yeah, there are always gonna be good days and bad days, this we know. But finding a little ray of light or some FUN, even in the darkest of days, is what brings hope. Hope is good. Life is short. HAVE SOME FUN TODAY!

     

    Your Daily Affirmation

    Pay the water bill, pick up the dry cleaning, HAVE SOME FUN TODAY.  Go to work, go to school, HAVE SOME FUN TODAY. Like it's your job. Think of it as the string around your index finger or the reminder alert on your phone. Your daily pep talk.  Studies show making a visual and concrete connection to positive affirmations can be hugely impactful on our stress levels and improve the way we see ourselves in the world. Try this: Pull on your HSFT original tee or the HSFT slouchy tee and stand in the mirror. See what it says? HAVE SOME FUN TODAY. Do that. Rinse. Repeat. You're welcome.

     

    You Say You Want a Revolution 

    It's a philosophy, an ideology. HSFT started a brand with mindset and challenges us to see the bigger picture. What could you do if you broke free of what you were supposed to do? What would it mean to live boldly and without fear? You never know what you're going to find around the corner, who your going to meet, or what unexpected gift the universe is going to bring. Our brand is so much more than just amazing t-shirts (and other luxe goods and accessories!)  but when you embrace the mindset,  you shift your thinking. You begin to open up a pathway to seeing the world a different way. We think that's pretty damn good for a t-shirt.

  • Here’s a little story we’ve got to tell….

    So we've been working up a little something at the HSFT studios that we're beyond excited to share with the world. Today we officially launched the trailer for our new vlog series, Have Some Fun Today: Building a Brand With Soul. We wanted to share the story of HSFT, because it’s a good one. Have Some Fun Today is so much more than luxury goods with a positive message. It’s the legacy of a father’s love, it’s the mission of one woman to change the world, it’s a “kick-your-ass-claw-your-way-to-success” kind of story.

    We hired a killer video guy, (Patrick Corcoran) to follow us around, and help capture the essence of what Have Some Fun Today is all about. We couldn’t imagine why sewing labels on t-shirts and packing up the car for HSFT events was something people wanted to see, but what we realized along the way is that it’s all part of our story, building our brand and making something good.

    It All Started With a Vision 

    "I met with a young, talented film maker that has really good sense of story telling," said HSFT founder Stephanie Rado Taormina. His talent and passion were very clear from the beginning. He told me how we could pull together a vlog series about my brand. And I really think it works." 

    There’s always more to the story than you think, and we think it’s worth sharing the trials, triumphs and tribulations as Have Some Fun Today grows into something more each and every day. It isn't always picture perfect but it's not supposed to be. It's real life, on the way to building a brand with soul. 

    Our HSFT vlog series is about the grit and grind of one woman building her brand, brick by brick and piece by piece. And all along the way, she is definitely going to Have Some Fun Today. 

    Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Making Something That Matters

    In Have Some Fun Today: Building a Brand With Soul, you’ll see the blood, sweat, and tears of manifesting an idea, with a fire in our gut and sheer determination. You'll see that time we hosted a Happy Hour at Facebook. Or the time we got lost in Philly on our way to an event. Real life. Real heart. A real brand, with soul.

    Life is what you make it, so make it fun....
