Have you seen the new Babiekins mag yet? Issue 8 is on their site and I am very proud to say that we got to be a part of it! You can check out some product from Monkey & The Bug in the Tangerine Dream Spread. The Wovenplay headband above is from our shop and you can check out the rest of the pictures HERE.
New Bobo Choses is here! This is a little preview of just a tiny portion of what we have in stock. The collection is now available in store and will be up on our web shop by the end of the week. I am loving the banana print and the little Popsicle romper. Which piece is your favorite?
Also, we are having a HUGE sale on last season Bobo Choses. You can shop it HERE.
A couple more pictures of what we have coming….

I decorated the area with Confetti System pinatas and used a simple moses basket to hold pillows.

Aside from running Monkey & The Bug and mothering twin girls, I also co-own a mens and womens wear shop. Stels was born eight years ago by my friend Jon, my husband Dave, and myself. We carry brands such as Rachel Comey, Gary Graham, Robert Geller, Aiko, Suno, Our Legacy, and many more. Stels is currently having a huge 50% off sale. Head HERE to shop.
I wanted to share a few photos of our store which shares a space with Monkey & The Bug. After almost a decade of life, the shop has become my second home. We tried to make it a clean, welcoming, friendly environment and I think we achieved our goal. There are always friends visiting and great music playing. It feels more like a hang out spot than a clothing store. We are located at 334 Newbury Street in Boston, MA. If you are local or ever in the area, pop in and say HI!
Artist Raul Gonzalez created these beautiful pieces. They are for sale and you can read more about Raul and his work HERE.
We carry Warby Parker in the shop. I am obsessed with the collaboration they did with Suno. Head HERE for more info.

Look who popped by the store the other day! Hendrix and his Mama (of Just By Living) and his Papa (of The Hipster Dad). Hendrix was quite smitten by this little pig from I Golfini Della Nonna which kept him entertained while his parents and I got to chit chat. Can’t say it’s a bad day at work when friends are hanging in the shop. We get lots of visits from Sierra and Lauren of Before I Was a Mom, as well. I’ve also had the honor of meeting Jen of Jen Loves Kev and Drea and Marlowe of Oh Dear Drea while they stopped by Monkey & The Bug. I love how this blog community introduces you to so many awesome families.
I’m in Wisconsin right now visiting my family. I’m excited for the chance to relax, celebrate, and maybe even blog a little while away from our hectic, day to day schedule. What are you all doing for the Holidays?

I have been wanting to write a bit about being a working mom on here for a while now. However, between balancing the two stores and the two kids, I haven’t really had the time. (Shocking, I know) I’m going to get into it more in another post but for now, here is a little look at one of my trips to NYC for womens market week. One of my many responsibilities within my shops is to do a lot of the buying which involves visiting showrooms and pouring over lookbooks and pictures. I really do love my job and being a working mom is something I am really proud of but it certainly isn’t easy. Then again, nothing worth having is.
These pictures were taken by my friend, Adriana of Just By Living, who came along for the trip back in September. If you want to see more, I have been blogging over HERE for the last few months about each individual showroom we went to.
Looking over the Kaelen line at the beautiful Parlor Showroom.
