I CAN PREDICT HOW 2020 WILL TURN OUT FOR YOU… Modification: I can’t quite prophesize that you’ll meet a dashing dude in May or sip wine in Positano in October, but I can reveal if you’ll be happier in the New Year. How? Well, based on how you’ve spent the last 365 days. To know your future, go through the series of good-for-you habits ahead, and confirm if they are already a part of your life. The more yesses you reply with, the more fulfilled you will feel next year. And if you end up with several nays, that’s okay, because the science backed pointers below can be put into action immediately, to ensure your year is a wonderful one. Ready?

5 things i’m lovin‘ right now

This pair can totally turn around a drab outfit! A fun shape and out-of-the-box colour is what makes it a total winner. Replace that party mini with a pair of fancy shorts. I’d wear these with a button-down, white shirt, and a pair of high, high heels. Artist Alex Israel brings his renowned California wave to life in this multihued bag. A collectible, if there ever was one. Need a li’l something to brighten up your outfit? These flats are the perfect way to add a touch of whimsy to anything. Look at the incredible detail on this pencil skirt! Statement separates such as this one can be dressed up or down, for lunch, dinner, or a cocktail do.…

SHINING BRIGHT “Shraddha Kapoor looked lovely on the cover! I loved all her beauty looks, and thank you for the tips on how to recreate them. The interview was equally interesting, too. I agree, it is important for women to stand up for (and with) each other. It was great to see that she takes her social media responsibilities seriously, and understands the impact her voice can have on her followers.” —Hajra Shamim DIFFERENT REALITIES “In Good Faith was a very interesting piece. We need more platforms like The Queer Muslim Project to normalise non-straight sexual orientations, and also to give those who feel marginalised within the community a place to belong to. ‘So, Who’s the Man in the Relationship?’ was another thought provoking story we need more of. It’s disturbing to see how…

cosmo’s best-dressed list

TULLE COOL TO MISS Over the year, we have come to trust that Deepika Padukone will dish out a systematic dose of artistic expression. But she made her most noteworthy appearance yet at Cannes 2019, in a lime-green Giambattista Valli gown, complete with the outré hairband. This outfit unveiling was proof of Deepika’s transformation from sartorial neophyte to risk-taker, and even the haters had to agree—this arrival was one that simply couldn’t be ignored. LIVING IN TECHNICOLOUR Mundane is a word that does not exist in Ranveer Singh’s sartorial dictionary. Clearly. From a leopard print suit with golden shoes to an all-red one with a beret, and all else that could typically be frowned-upon, Ranveer made headlines all year round for his louche, idiosyncratic choices, including many an (extra) accessory. You won’t find…

hot guys that travel

ARJAN BAJWA MY RECOMMENDATIONS “I’m training to be a pilot and fly as a hobby. So one of my favourite things to do in SF is go to the Livermore airport and fly around. If you’re passionate about planes too, do go there. The Livermore Outlets is also a great place to shop. The area is also home to some great vineyards, so you can enjoy wining and dining. Other than that, do visit the Bay Bridge: it’s an engineering marvel; visit Pier 39 marina for its liveliness, abuzz with performances, 3-D rides, eating joints etc; watch an NFL game; take a tour of the Alcatraz jails; if you’re an outdoorsy person, trek to the Twin Peaks and see the city spread out like a carpet below you; if you want to…

Cosmo: Tell us about Reebok’s new concept store, Fit Hub 3.0… Malaika Arora: “It’s the first of its kind in the country! Today, the world over, fitness is not looked at as just fitness alone…it’s become fused with fashion. And that coming together is fantastic. That’s what the store offers: a unique shopping experience for any fitness enthusiast.” C: You’re a fitness enthusiast, too. What’s your workout routine like? MA: “The most important thing for me is to just get up in the morning and go out. I encourage people to make time for themselves and engage in a fitness activity. That tends to be the biggest challenge for most people. If you can incorporate that in your daily life, half the battle is won. Next is what you do in your fitness…
