Confidence is a choice

“You have to be a legend in your own mind before you can be a legend in your own time.” I saved this quote from a book I read last year. The author believes – as do I – that confidence and a belief in your own ability are essential to being great. Everyone can act positive and confident when things are going their way, when everything is going right, but what happens when things don’t go your way? When no matter what you do, you always end up on the wrong side of the equation? Having self-confidence at all times can carry you through the jungle of misfortune, safely to the other side. Confidence isn’t some crazy concept; yet it isn’t something you are born with, or can improve through

Baselworld's best timepieces under $7,000

Baselworld 2018 is the world’s largest and most important exhibition for the watch industry – and a key event for anyone in the market for a new timepiece. Armed with $6,970, Square Mile’s Ben Winstanley takes to the stands to find this year’s standout pieces. Things begin to get serious around the $7,000 price point. At this budget, buyers (many looking for a new timepiece for the season) are likely to encounter a mix of iconic watch manufacturers, with the allure of their recognizable brand presence, and lesser-known watchmakers who balance their lack of a marketing budget with a keener eye on hand craftsmanship. There’s plenty of great timepieces available in this range, but keep an eye

Salute to Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton's new menswear director

PARIS — Virgil Abloh, the founder of the haute street wear label Off-White and a longtime creative director for Kanye West, will be the next artistic director of menswear at Louis Vuitton, one of the oldest and most powerful European houses in the luxury business. He will be one of the few black designers at the top of a French heritage house. Olivier Rousteing is the creative director of Balmain, and Ozwald Boateng, from Britain, was the designer for Givenchy menswear from 2003 to 2007. “I am elated,” Abloh said, adding that he planned to relocate his family to Paris to take the job at the world’s largest luxury group. “This opportunity to think through what the next chapter of design and

Happily Ever After: the British monarchy jumps into the 21st century

Only 90 years ago, a divorcée scandal rocked the House of Windsor and forced a monarch to abdicate the throne. King Edward VIII, in love with the American, twice-divorced Wallis Simpson, abruptly end his tenure as sovereign of the Commonwealth and his brother Albert ascended to the throne as King George VI. Prince Philippe’s romance with then-Princess Elizabeth raised eyebrows due to his Greek and German noble background, and their royal offspring took Elizabeth’s surname Windsor instead of his – Mountbatten. Princess Margaret was not allowed to marry the man of her choice, the divorced Peter Townsend, in 1952. Prince Charles loved the commoner Camilla Parker-Bowles but married (and later

Ireland's Foraging Ch(i)ef: Award-winning chef keeps it fresh, local and inventive

I remember Paul Cunningham visiting us in San Francisco and cooking up a storm in our tiny kitchen. One meal I distinctly have not forgotten was a delicious paella – fluffy yellow rice with flavors and aromas of saffron, sautéed bell peppers, peas, chicken, chorizo, prawns, seasoned with herbs, spices and pimentos for spiciness. Who was this “other Cunningham gentleman” I had never heard of? Although no relation to my husband’s (Cunningham) side of the family in their shared hometown of County Down Northern Ireland, over time, he has become a friend who happens to bear the same surname. During that trip, he often spoke about cooking, food, anything and everything culinary-related and alwa
