~Naturally~, we felt it our duty to test these unique approaches out, so for the pilot episode of our brand new tutorial series, How To Do Stuff (P.S. we're launching a tutorial series!!!), we decided to do just that. Watch the video above for some valuable information on whether tampons work as hair curlers, if a Sharpie marker can pass as eyeliner, and soooooo much more.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
