New Additions to Style By Mommy

We are proud to announce we are carrying wet bags, made by The Sling Sisters, local Manitoba Moms!!

These bags are amazing - The industrial grade waterproof liner keeps wetness inside. Each bag is approximately 12x15 inches, has a zippered top and strap with a snap so you can hang it anywhere you go.

I have used wet bags for years and can honestly say these are the best quality I've found. Nice and thick, with a strong zipper and reinforced tab to hang the bag in the laundry room, nursery, off your stroller, etc.

Some uses we have found for wet bags:

  • Potty training - your little one is sure to have an accident - keep soiled clothes in this bag and don't worry about smelling up your purse, car, etc.

  • Swimming lessons or trips to the beach - put your wet swimsuits, towels, etc. in the bag and keep everything else dry.

  • Cloth Diapering - wetbags are a MUST for your soiled diapers, wipes etc. Just open up the bag, empty it in the wash and go.

  • Sports - I keep everything in a wetbag (change of socks, mosquito spray, keys, etc. and then throw it on the field. No worry of soaking everything when it rains. Because it always rains on soccer night!

     Visit Style By Mommy and order your Wet Bag today! ships to Canada is now shipping to Canada. In the past you could ship movies and books but now you can ship things like clothing, toys, etc. They often have AMAZING deals so this is a great opportunity, especially for Christmas presents!

Piggy Paint is instock!!

We've added a fresh batch of Piggy Paint to Style By Mommy!!

Lots of great colours including Mac'n'Cheese Please, which is a vibrant orange and perfect for fall!!

At just $10 a bottle, free pickup in Winnipeg and a flat rate shipping fee of $10.00 - Style By Mommy is the perfect place to pickup your Piggy Paint.

Why is Piggy Paint™ Nail Polish the safe nail polish?


•Low Odor

•Water-based formula


•Fun, vibrant colors

•Dries to a hard, durable finish


•Safe for use during Pregnancy!

Piggy Paint™ is specially formulated from God’s natural ingredients and dries to a hard, durable finish. There are no toxic chemicals; it’s free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, Bisphenol A, ethyl acetate and acetone. Click here to see how our polish compares!

Say good-bye to harsh, smelly chemicals and hello to Piggy Paint™…it’s as Natural as Mud!

Piggy Paint™ Ingredients
Water, water-miscible acrylic resins and thickeners (well below 100 parts per million), glycol ethers. May contain mica, D&C red lake, ultramarine blue, iron and titanium oxide pigments.

•Wash hands with soap and water.

•Apply 2 -3 thin coats of Piggy Paint™.

•Air dry 60 seconds.

•Blow dry polished nails for 1 minute with hair dryer set on warm heat/low blower setting. For safety purposes, please follow manufacturer’s instructions on blow dryer and always monitor your child.

Since most young children are squirmy during the drying process of any polish, we suggest singing songs to pass the time. Two rounds of the “ABC’s” should make 60 seconds pass by very quickly. Make “Piggy Painting” a bonding experience for you and your child.

Do I have to use a blow dryer to dry her nails?

No, but it is recommended for maximum chip resistance. Since Piggy Paint™ is water-based and does not contain harsh chemicals, it takes longer for its ultimate hardness to be reached. The blow dryer just speeds up this process.

Another alternative is to wait and polish your child’s nails after bath time, before they go to bed. This will allow the polish to cure overnight.

Piggy Paint™ As a Learning Tool

Fine Motor Skills

Let your child paint your fingernails or toenails. If you’re worried about it looking (well, like a child painted your nails), opt for the toenails…you can always put socks on in public! This helps with her fine-motor skills and gives her a chance to exert her independence.

Color Names

Are you trying to teach your child color names? Paint her nails with the specific color you’re working on (such as red) and declare it a “Red Day”. All day long, point out objects in her environment that match her nails, and encourage her to do the same. Wear red clothes, add red foods to mealtime and use a bath color tablet to make her bath water red. Once she’s mastered that color, paint her piggies a new color.


Recognizing different types of patterns is a hard concept learn for children to learn, so why not put patterns right at their fingertips? For example, if you’re working on simple patterns, alternate blue and yellow “Piggy Paint” on her fingers. As you go through the day, help her to make patterns with her toys, M&M‘s, crayons, beads…use your creativity. Have her refer to her fingernails for help. Start out with color patterns and then attempt other categories, such as big doll, little doll, big doll, etc. Ready for harder patterns? Move to three different colors or alternate pink, purple, purple, pink, and so on.

School Colors

Does your daughter play any sports? Perhaps she has a favorite high school, collegiate, or professional team she cheers for. If so, paint her nails with her team’s colors to show her support.

Piggy Paint™ Nail Polish Remover

Why is Piggy Paint™ Nail Polish Remover the best choice?

•Low Odor

•No Acetone



Put harmful, smelly polish removers behind you with Piggy Paint™ Nail Polish Remover, a remover that works quickly on all polishes, especially Piggy Paint™ Nail Polish. Our remover contains none of the solvents that could offend your nose or harm our atmosphere. Aloe Vera and Vitamin E are added to supplement the natural oils that protect nails and cuticles.

Ingredients: Corn alcohol, butyl diglycol, Aloe Vera extract, Vitamin E, embittering agent.

Warning: Because Piggy Paint™ Nail Polish Remover is flammable when heated, do not use or store near heat or an ignition source. Do not ingest. Keep out of reach of children, and always have an adult supervising while using this product.

Well we did it - the 2nd Winnipeg Name Brand Sale is over and it went well!! We organized a sale double the size of our last one, and we hope the Spring sale will double again!

The Style By Mommy booth was good, we sold a LOT of clothes but we have BIG plans for next season to make it much better than ever.

We also picked up quite a few new consignors at the sale, so that was fantastic.

Those of you who came out, it was GREAT to see you there!

I will say that Friday night, at 2am, after a week of sickness, a trip to the emergency room, and less than 12 hours of sleep in 3 days, I wasn't sure there would be a Spring sale, but it all came together nicely. Hopefully next time we can stay healthy the week prior ;)

Consignors - we are now updating our lists, inventory, etc. in the next few days you will receive an email from us as to where your account is at, your options for cashing in, etc.

Thanks again - we couldn't do this without you :)
