The "Crown Pouch" from the new HSFT gift line.
HSFT is growing and changing, too. We've expanded our vision to include a new gift line and are cooking up new ideas every day. When we make space for new ideas, we open the door to new opportunities.
Life Lessons From an Acorn
Last minute invite to to London for the weekend? Yes! A new job in New York City? Yes! Take a chance and say yes to new possibilities; that's the HSFT philosophy. An acorn holds a single seed and when it falls to the ground, it has the power to become a tree. That's some serious potential! What do we have the power to do when we let go?
Let's Get Deep Over a Falling Leaf
Leaves begin to fall, air is cool and crisp, and autumn is the perfect time for self reflection. It's kind of like the New Year's resolutions you made with that glass of bubbly in your hand back in January, except it kinda makes more sense in September. What's happening outside directly correlates to us inside, even if we don't know it. It's a time to let go, move away from the excesses of summer and move inward.
The earth around us is prepping for winter and storing energy new growth in spring. What if we took a cue from Mother Nature and looked at our lives like that? Thinking of taking that class to learn something new? Have some health and fitness goals for your body? As the season slows down and gives pause to winter, we too can catch a breath, put away the sunscreen and beach towels and reflect on what's next. All that from fall foliage.
So now what?
Okay, so leaves are piling up and it's getting colder, what are we supposed to do with that?
Cultivate moving inward and see what you are capable of! Take a yoga or meditation class, meet with a friend weekly for coffee and talk about your goals, keep a journal and write down goals for yourself and things you want to accomplish. Giving ourselves a time and a place with a little quiet and our own thoughts can be powerful. You can conquer the world if you want to, the only question is, which world?
HAVE SOME FUN TODAY was founded on the very principles of honoring life, taking a chance and living life to the fullest. Yeah, we make fabulous t-shirts, chic accessories, and just launched a beautiful new gift line, (have you seen the new gift line?) but what we're really selling is a philosophy and way of life that we hope spreads like wildfire. Live. Love. Wear. Share. It's way more than t-shirts. Peace, love and acorns.
It may just look like a t-shirt, but at HSFT it's also a state of mind. These four little words, HAVE SOME FUN TODAY ( on our shirts, totes, and new gift line!) are the guiding principle behind everything we do. So how can a t-shirt make your day?
Don't Take It All Too Seriously
Life can be pretty intense. 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. Life is short. HAVE SOME FUN TODAY!
Your Friendly Reminder
Pay the water bill, pick up the dry cleaning, HAVE SOME FUN TODAY. Like it's your job. Think of it as the string around your index finger or the reminder message you send yourself on your phone. If you have to remind yourself by looking in the mirror to see those four little words on your t-shirt or see those black leather letters stitched on our luxe tote as you sling it over your shoulder, then we've done our job. Rinse and repeat.
Take a Chance
It's a philosophy, an ideology. What could you do if you broke free of what you were supposed to do and did what you wanted to do? What would it mean to live life boldly and without fear? When you HSFT 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. It may just be t-shirt (or a , or our luxe tote!), but you when you embrace HSFT, you shift your thinking, you open up a pathway to seeing the world a different way and you cultivate happiness. We think that's pretty damn good for a t-shirt.
