The event was held at Union Station in downtown Kansas City. I had never been to Union Station so this was my first time and I was in awe at the beauty of it! From the chandeliers to the ceilings and everything else was beautiful! FW was held in the 'main hall'. The show started at 7 and cocktail hour was beforehand. Although we couldn't drink we walked around, mingled and took some photos in the PhotoBus, which is one of the coolest things ever!
We were originally sat in the second row but got moved to the Front Row. A huuuge thanks to Kathryn, the Director of Media, the GBS co-founder and a fellow blogger friend, for making it happen! You're the best! :)
Selfie because fashion week. Lol.
My view form my FR seat! I'm pretty I stopped breathing when she asked us. Sitting FR at a fashion show is something I dreamed about, I never thought I'd actually be sitting!
Thursday's line up was by far the most casual of the three. The line up included:
I have to give a huge round of applause for Molly Elizabeth. She is a 15, a FIFTEEN year old fashion designer and model (you'll see her later). While her collection wasn't my style, she's crazily talented and is definitely going places!
I wasn't in love with the other collections but my favorite collection of the night was Paolini Garment Company. You guys know how much I love a well dressed man and this collection did not disappoint. I loved the tailored looks. the neutral colors and pattern play. Plus the models weren't too bad to look at either ;)
The show ended a little after 9 and me and Sarah headed home to get some beauty rest and gear up for the next day!
I was starving after so a necessary McDonald's stop was required before heading home. No judgments. I had the chicken tenders and they're my favorite thing ever. I'm so glad McD's brought them back. They're soo good.

This is the perfect everyday pink color! It's showing up lighter and more 'nude' pink in the photos but it's a super pretty light pink. It's from the Kate Moss by Rimmel line and I'm obsessed!
I've worn this color I can't even tell you how many times. I feel like it's my signature lip color. It's the brightest, Barbie, bubblegum pink and you need it in your life.
This color is amazing and the pictures aren't doing it justice. It's a vibrant fuschia that's sure to make a statement! If you're looking for a darker, 'vampy-ish' lip color for the spring/summer this one is it!
These are the four colors that I've been wearing with the warm weather. I wear lipstick almost every day. I never use to be a lipstick wearer until last year when I saw the light and needed them in my life. Since then I've started quite a nice little collection. Honestly if I go out and I forget lipstick I feel naked. Lipstick just pulls an outfit together. I've had times where something just isn't right with it, I add lipstick and BAM it's perfect.
They're all really fun and bright colors that add a great pop of color to any outfit! I'm still looking for a nice nude color so if you have one leave me a comment sharing!
All of these are from the drugstore so they're super affordable. You can get them pretty much anywhere and usually there are coupons you can use too!
They're super opaque, vibrant, go on smooth, aren't drying and have great lasting power! If you're looking for some new lipsticks to add to your collection this season I'd definitely recommend all of these!
What are your favorite lipsticks for spring/summer? Have any to recommend? Leave a comment below or strike up a convo via social media with me, @samantha_goble!

I bought everything at Michael's because I had a 40% off coupon but any craft supplies store will do. All you need are a pair of sandals with straps, gems and E6000 glue. I bought my sandals at Forever21. I can't find them online :( But good places to try are Target, Charlotte Russe, Old Navy, etc.
Step no. 1: Roughly plan out how many/ how far you want your gems to be. I put 6 on mine but depending on your size of gems you can have more or less. You could also do a pattern or if you had small enough ones clusters! Be as creative as you want!
Step no. 2: Place glue on the back of the gems. Not too much or it will goop out when you press it to the strap. The glue was white and dried white so it did change the reflection of the gem but it's nothing too major. It made them look all glittery!
Step no. 3: Place the glued gem on the sandal and hold it firmly to adhere to the sandal for about 10 seconds. Keep adding your gems across the strap until you've reached the finished product.
Let the glue dry for 24-72 hours before wearing them.
If you have extra glue take a Q-Tip with acetone and remove the excess.
Viola! You have the new 'it' sandal for the season and at a fraction of the cost! All in all it cost me less than $30 to make and if I wanted I could make lots of other pairs with all my extra supplies! It also took me around 15 minutes to do everything. It's such an easy and chic DIY that anyone could do! It would make for a perfect girl's night activity!
Will you try out this DIY? What do you think of the jeweled sandal trend? Love it, loathe it? Leave me a comment or strike up a convo with me via social media, @samantha_goble, letting me know! :)
