The Christmas Survival Guide Day 5: 3 Ways To Deal With Overeating At Christmas

And as you lounge about watching TV, you're inner monologue goes 'Just one more Chocolate, and then I'll stop.  Definitely, this time.  Mmm...that was yummy.... ok, one more, then that's it...'

Sound familiar?

How To Be Fabulous!

This was a Girls Night Out that had been months in the planning.

Spirits, along with heels, hems and hair, were high. The collective volume - also high.

Twin A is having the time of her life. She is chatting, laughing, dancing, smiling and flirting.

Twin B looks very uncomfortable. She stays in her seat, avoids eye contact and self consciously pulls at her clothes.

What's making their behaviour so different?
