The former ‘Hills’ beauty and fashion darling opened up about her recent engagement — and why she would never ‘settle’ for a guy!

Lauren Conrad looks great on Cosmopolitan‘s January 2014 issue, where the 27-year-old is clad in a printed, high-waisted skirt and matching bralette top. Inside the magazine, she gushes about how happy she is in her relationship and offers up love life for her fans.

Lauren Conrad’s Proposal:

“I had no idea it was coming. I thought he would wait until he finished law school,” she tells the mag. As for her engagement ring, William picked it out all on his own! “He didn’t even ask my friends, which was a bold move. He said, ‘I know you, and I know what you like.’ And I love it. It’s perfect.”

Lauren Conrad’s Love Advice On Getting Engaged:

Her fans have watched her fall in and out of love and Lauren always seems so relatable — so, what advice does she have about waiting for the ring? “You have the rest of your life to be married. Enjoy falling in love. When girls get caught up in the timeline, it becomes more about the wedding than the marriage. You should be with someone with whom you could elope this weekend and be happy.”

Lauren Conrad On Never Settling — And How She Knew William Was ‘The One’:

“William hates it when I say this, but he really is a very nice guy, and when you meet a nice guy who also manages to keep your interest, that is the dream…If you’re going to settle down, it should be with someone you can’t stop thinking about. Especially if you’re in your 20s. If I were single in my 60s, I would totally settle. I would!”

Lauren Conrad On Making Mistakes In Her Friendships:

“Being on television all those years, I got to view my own behavior. One thing I realized is that I was too hard on my friends when it came to guys. Instinctually, I wanted to protect them. But then you come off as judge-y and people are reluctant to come to you with a problem. I had to cut “I told you so” from my vocabulary.”

Lauren Conrad On Her Body:

“I’m so jealous of people who completely love their bodies. I think most women have trouble areas as well as areas that they like. So you play up your favorite parts and learn to dress around the others. I used to hate my legs, but now I always wear minis. It was an accident. In an effort to look taller, I started wearing really high heels with shorter skirts and ended up showing off my legs a lot.”

What do you think of Lauren’s cover?
