Last Look: Lifestyle

The year is drawing to a close and with it comes the inevitable nostalgic look back at the past year (and the scramble to find a kick ass New Year’s Eve outfit). In 2010, the Lifestyle section has been your go-to for how-to. We’ve worked hard for you this year, ladies and gents. We’ve tried out the latest exercise fads, taken up new hobbies, gone on deal-breaker dates, traveled to far, far away lands, and elbowed our way to the front row of fashion shows to bring you the latest and greatest of how to live and how to look good doing it.

Get a jump start on your New Year’s resolutions courtesy of Gozamos’ Lifestyle Gurus. This year will be your year. 2011 is the year when you’re going to finally take that exotic vacation and pick up that hobby you’ve been meaning to try. You’re going to date better, dress better, and have better sex.

Hop to it, readers. Go try something new. . .
