All Dolled Up!




When I launched MoPa three years ago, I scoured the market for brands that I wanted to connect with. I happened upon Sophie & Lili, based out of Connecticut and easily fell in love. Her soft dolls, custom illustrations and love for fabric easily turned me into a fan –and her entire collection is just perfect for gifting.

Today, Sophie & Lili launches a new bedding collection for the Land of Nod. Beyond being adorable, it’s boasting one of my favorite colors right now: tomato red and when paired with throw pillows that feature Jen’s illustration work – it’s pretty much perfection.

This bedding is perfect for toddler – tweens, and can easily interchange  and coordinate with existing or other Land of Nod bedding collections. Shop the Sophie & Lili Bedding Collection here!

Jump In & Swim



I popped into the Gap yesterday to pick up a few items for the newest member of our family – yay, we finally have ourselves a baby girl. And though I was not in the market to buy swimwear for a newborn, I could not help but fall in love with the most precious “lemon” suit. The product photo here does not do it justice, really, so if you have a local Gap go there and shop for it now because it’s the sweetest. It also inspired this post – a roundup of baby girl swimwear that I love, and most of it is on SALE right now!

Happy Shopping MoPas!


Best of Summer

by Nicole Locke

Ah, the laid-back days of Summer…  When summer traditions flip from cocktail induced naps on the beach to chasing your tot through the sprinklers, it’s nice to have some fun, simple ideas in your arsenal to help unwind and create new traditions with your growing family. Is there anything more “summer” than hammocks, corn on the cob, fireworks, slip and slides, feasts on the grill, and Popsicles? We think not.



S Room Tour

When I have the chance to feature an interior project, it makes me happy. Especially when the space is designed for a little, because the design not only represents who they are now, but who they hope to be. It’s a pretty unique & awesome challenge and one that was perfectly met by designer Jennifer Tapper Richards. Here’s a tour of this delicate “little girl room” that’s inspired by New England and sweet dreams.
