Zara Brown Beige Teddybear Coat
As a general rule, the word 'obsession' tends to have a pretty negative connotation.  It's seen as excessive and all-consuming.  But it's also obsession that has led to some of the greatest stories, careers and relationships in the world, right?  I've been thinking lately about how some of the best and most exciting aspects of my life so far have come from borderline obsession and well, I'm pretty curious to learn about how others feel on the topic now.  Ooh, let's discuss...

Styling a Teddybear Coat with a Dress
So, take personal development as an example.  Progression.  When we want something to happen and I mean really want something to happen, it tends to only happen if we're completely fixated on that one thing.  Obsession?  Probably.  But without that intense focus, maybe that particular thing wouldn't happen?  If a person intrudes your mind and becomes a regular thought, it can become love.  If an interest does the same, it can become a skill, even a career.  And the same applies to learning, working out, social skills and so much more.  Funnily enough, it also applies to fashion.  The designers who come up with the concepts, the businesses that sell the finished product and the consumers, who adore their new purchases.  Speaking of which, I'm completely smitten with these Bulgari sunglasses via Eyewearbrands.  My love for Bulgari has bordered on an obsession for many years now and so you can expect to see this frame feature a lot in my upcoming winter looks!
