“Have some fun today,” said Stephanie Rado Taormina’s dad every day. After his passing in 2014, those words would change her life. She visualized a painting she knew she had to create based on those four words: Have Some Fun Today. The painting was just the beginning, and it soon became a t-shirt, a beach tote, a hat. “That was the day I started this brand,” says Stephanie. We are inspired by the message, and we are inspired by Stephanie herself! Let’s get to know her a bit better.
