I DONT SEE THE BENEFIT OF COMPARISONS AND NUMBERS___NENGI



 Fashion has never looked this good, stumbled on her style on Instagram and I must say its refreshing seeing someone stick to their style when everyone is trying to be someone else.. her blend of nude colors and her pretty self makes this post one of my favorite.. lets meet Nengi, blogger of Runway ribbons and stylist from United Kingdom and much ado about blogosphere the comparisons and numbers that have made some of us go wild!!!


Name: Nengi Willie-Pepple
Country: United Kingdom

What is Fashion to you?
·         Fashion to me is a distinctive style in the way people choose to dress. It’s different personalities and attitudes all trying to be seen and heard.

How would you describe your style?
·         It’s quite hard for me to describe my style because it keeps growing, but since it has to be put in words, I’d say my style is sort of edgy chic.

What trend in the fashion industry gets you worked up?
·         No trend comes to mind, but that’s because I rarely follow trends.

How do you see your style?
·         My style is pretty cool and comfortable.

Where do you get your inspiration?
·         I get inspiration from TV Shows, photography and some of my favourite fashion icons.

Favourite wardrobe item?
·         Currently, my camel cape. It just goes with everything I love to wear this season!

Challenge you face as a style blogger?
·         Consistency and writing. It’s quite hard to keep a regular schedule of style posts when you have other priorities. But I’m working on it, because consistency is very important. With regards to writing, I wouldn’t say this is a ‘challenge’ as such, because I love writing. However, some outfits I put together are simply just that. Outfits. There are no cute stories behind my jumper or funny metaphors to make my readers laugh. Sometimes there’s just no reason behind what I wore. I simply felt like it. But you can’t just write ‘I felt like it’ at the bottom of all your lovely blog pictures, which is where the ‘challenge’ of writing comes in.

What is in your current wish list?
·         iPad mini
·         iPhone 6
·         A new camera lens
·         A bunch of things in my ASOS saved basket

Favourite quote?
·         “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson


Style and beauty secret?
·         It’s not actually a secret, but one thing I never fail to do is to take off my make up before I go to bed. 

Much ado about the blogosphere, your experience and things that needs to be addressed?
·         Blogging for me is great. I love the new friends I’ve made, and the niceties that come with it all. It’s one of my favourite hobbies to date! What I don’t really like about the ‘blogosphere’ as you so nicely put it, are the comparisons that come along with it. I don’t see the benefit in being compared to one another, when none of us are the same two people and never will be. Usually, what people compare against, are a bunch of inaccurate information. I just don’t think it’s fair to compare, when you don’t have all the information and probably never will. If comparing is how you evaluate your worth, then you will always be losing. I try to stay away from doing it to others as well as myself.

·         Numbers. Thanks to social media, blogging has become a big numbers game. For the bloggers, for the sponsors, for the viewers, for just everyone. If you don’t have the highest numbers, somehow you’re losing the race. What’s that about?! We all seem to want a large following for whatever reason. Maybe to be noticed or to get freebies or to get fantastic deals with companies etc. But the way I see it is, the numbers don’t even matter anymore, because if someone can cheat their way to the top (e.g. buy followers) and still get the same amount of attention and recognition as someone who worked their way to the top, then what’s the point?! The final ‘prize’ isn’t anything to write home about if both parties achieve the same thing. I try and focus on content rather than numbers.

Thanksgiving is around the corner what are you grateful for?
·         I’m grateful for my life, my family, my home and my friends.

Fun facts about you?
·         I have a deep love for seafood
·         I never leave my house without my iPod
·         I can do the splits
·         I love travelling and reading books
·         I really, really, dislike cats. It might even be a hate
