  •     I feel like we just lived an extra two years of madness crammed into the last 6 months - right? Well it has felt like that to me:)

        As I have been thinking about this months blog and all the topics fresh in my mind that I have been dealing with, I'm going to start with what my dad was thinking when he began saying "Have Some Fun Today". I know he was juggling a lot: a big family, lots of bills to pay, running a midsize company that he started from scratch with two manufacturing facilities and over 100 employees, several major health issues and his love of having a balance of work and play. Basically a full and complex life like many of us have. Somewhere out of that, this kind, outgoing guy that could sell ice to a Eskimo started to say "Have Some Fun Today." Now I get it more than ever.....

      And to be honest I have had my share of moments where I had to dig deep to find my sunshine. This is what I do for a living right? How can I feel so worn out emotionally and mentally that I can't be authentic in my job of sharing how to HSFT? It happens to the best of us. I have cried more in the past 6 months than I had in the past several years. Cried for the world, cried for those who have lost loved ones, cried for people who have been isolated and depressed, cried for the lack of compassion and leadership our world so desperately needs and when I was done crying I became grateful for my position and grateful to be a voice and a vessel for some happiness that others can feel and wear and share.

         Yes we have a lot to figure out and improve and Yes we aren't out of the woods yet, but these things are here and we either evolve and find ways to uplevel, fix some of these problems and enjoy life, or we don't.

         The past six months have awakened so many of us to the corruption of "the system". If we dwell in the media amongst the childishness of our politicians, and how this storm is whirling over us from so many angles, it is easy to fall prey to becoming depressed and anxious. I have felt this deeply and it has given me a new perspective. We all don't have to agree, but we should be able to respect our disagreements and still play in the sandbox together. That is how we progress as a nation.

        When all the racial riots were in full swing I received an email from a customer of my brand. It was in response to my email that Love is the Answer. While she was polite and well meaning, she wanted to let me know that while she didn't expect me to send out a racially apologetic marketing email addressing the issues at hand, she felt my Love is the Answer email was naive at best. 

        I welcomed the conversation and ansered her about my feelings regarding BLM from my heart (as I am a mother of 1 millenial and 1 Gen Z and we had many many conversations about it) so I was able to share my position with her that I have always had the utmost respect and have worked with and support Black artists, Black models , Black designers, Black photographers, Black customers and Black friends and truly believe that the most beautiful world is one where we respect all races equally. But what came out of my final comment in my conversation with her was that my purpose with my brand is to share something simple that lifts peoples spirits and reminds them whoever they are, whatever race, color, sex or political affiliation to enjoy your life - to Have Some Fun Today .

        She told me she didn't expect to hear a reponse to her email at all, especially from the founder, she thanked me and it felt good to  hear her, and for her to hear me and to give each other the mutual respect that everyone deserves. That is who we are. That is what this brand is about. That is my purpose. That is the brands purpose. We stand by that simplicity and honor the words : Have Some Fun Today.

        So for everyone of you who is reading this, don't forget to have a little fun today.... you never know what the future holds as we have clearly been shown.

  • HAVE SOME FUN TODAY - Happy St. Patrick's Day! It may be the Luck of the Irish today but anyone can rock this sexy look for a little action, no matter you go.

    How To Wear It

    Fashion trends are still in love with the "statement tee" paired with closet staples like your favorite "rip" look jean and a sexy platform stiletto. 

    Have Some Fun Today has one trend "statement tees" in different colors and styles. One of our favorite "go to" pieces in our HSFT Core Collection is the black slouchy tank, which has year round street cred, no matter what the season. Circuit training at the gym  or cocktails at a swanky bar, this versatile shirt is a flattering cut for every figure. 

    The Classic Look of Jeans & Heels  

    Grab "those" jeans from your arsenal. You know the ones, they flatter your every curve and you feel sexy when you put them on. We love these rip distressed ankle cut jeans from Mother Denim You've got instant style with our statement tank and jeans like this. Add a sexy shoe. Peep toe, stiletto, cork wedge, platform, -whatever suits you, but a little height and heel gives you instant sex appeal. We love these black suede platform peep toes from Zara .

    Jacket Required

    If there's one classic staple that every woman needs in her closet, it's a well-fitted blazer. You can't find too many uses for an essential like the black tuxedo jacket we paired with this sexy ensemble. Check out this one from Zara for under $100.  It's an effortless piece that makes a statement in every wardrobe, weather it's in the office or out for drinks. 

    Key Pieces = Smart Choices

    Our HSFT slouchy tank, great jeans, sexy shoes and a classic tuxedo jacket make the perfect night out look. And for a clever nod to an on-point trend, we've topped it with our white knit HSFT patch beanie hat for those last minute winter temps still hanging on. 

    You can't miss when your wardrobe is full of core pieces and essentials that mix and match for day and night.

  • Soul Circle: A community of women that surround you with love, healing, positive vibration and acceptance, and always have your back. 

     

    HAVE SOME FUN TODAY - So, yesterday was International Women's Day, a globally celebrated day honoring the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Honoring women and all the amazing things we can do is what Have Some Fun Today is all about. Founded by a woman, surrounded by a team of women (and yes, a few awesome men, too) this "mindset brand" is all about lifting up our fellow females with positivity and love.

    We love celebrating women. We love women who love to raise up other women. And women who don't buy the catty bullshit stereotypes and see the beauty in all of us rising up, like a phoenix from the ash. 

    Be A Bucket Carrier 

    We are: mothers, daughters, sisters, friends. Women. Beautiful, thoughtful, creative women. How can we make the world a better place for all of us? How can we empower each other? We think it starts with something as simple as carrying a bucket... 

    "I love when people that have been through hell walk out of the flames carrying buckets of water for those still consumed by the flames..." Stephanie Sparkles 

     

    That quote is everything! We fell in love with that beautiful quote by Stephanie Sparkles that we found on Instagram. We can empower other women by being there and lending a hand. Yeah, we are those kind of women. Be a bucket carrier! Be the woman who says, "I've got you. Keeping walking. You're almost there..." 

    Medicine Women & Revolutionaries... We Kick Ass 

    This we know: with age comes wisdom and with experience comes an understanding of self that we just simply can't see when we're in the flames. What a beautiful thing when a woman who has been through the fire can say to another woman, "I'm here. I see you. I know what you're going through." 

    Women are inherent and instinctive healers. We are like ancient medicine women with herbs and salves in our well-worn leather bag that we dole out to those who are hurting or in pain. We've been rocking this nurturing thing pretty much from the beginning of time. We give birth to lots of things, babies, ideas, companies, music, art, revolutions (see Joan of Arc, Harriet Tubman, and Susan B. Anthony ). Women are powerful beyond measure, especially when we work together. You know that saying, "Women's Instinct"? That's not just a saying. That is gospel. We have an instinct born into us that some would argue means we work from "the heart".  And as nurturers, we've got the most powerful tool of all; love. 

    Find Your Soul Circle 

    When surrounded ourselves with these kind of women, we've created our own soul circle. When we can't love ourselves, they will remind us why they do. They'll pick us up and dust us off and put us back together. They'll cheer the loudest for our victories and cry with us when we fail. There's pretty much nothing we can't do when we have that kind of energy and love around us. Get a soul circle. Be a bucket carrier and immerse yourself in the beauty of being a woman.
