I have no idea where these two dresses have come from!

Guess what! They're from H&M! However, they are not on the UK H&M site, and I think you'll agree that they do not look like they're from a high-street store! 
I found these on H&M Switzerland online. They are both part of their conscious collection, which is an incredibly well designed and priced collection that I am a HUGE fan of. Because you can't shop online on the Swiss website, there are no prices for either of these dresses...but given H&M prices I bet they are a bargain for intricacy and thought that has been put in to them.

A world away from the world - Geneva.

I have just settled into my new apartment in Geneva, where I'll be staying for 2 months whilst doing an internship at the World Health Organization. It's beautiful, the people are perfect; friendly and well-dressed, there is not a scrap of litter around, the streets are lined with chocolate and fancy watch stores and I've never felt safer. But I can't help but feel like this place doesn't seem real. The people have money poring out of their ears, their lives seem perfect, and there is no sign of a lower or middle class population. I put these thoughts to a banker I was chatting to in an OTT bar I went to last night, and his response was 'And what?...It works! Everyone is happy!'...hmm...I still wasn't satisfied. But then he proceeded to buy a 150 Swiss franc bottle of Bombay Sapphire to share with me so I forgot all about it.
I'm still trying to work it out, but for now I'll continue making new friends and soaking up the chocolate...oops I mean culture.

Rosie Henderson, PA at Smythson, and a wonderful friend, was last night showcasing some of her new perks of the job. The only sad thing about this is that her treasured mulberry purse has now taken second place and is sitting all alone in her top draw. Maybe it needs a new owner... :-)
