*:. Happy New Year! .:*
First of all, I am so super happy that we’re in 2015 right now. 2014 hasn’t been the worst but neither has it been the best and I am just so grateful to enter into the new year and I believe with all my heart that 2015 is going to be a so much better year for me – at work, in life and blogging too! Taking the time to wish all of you a wonderful 2015 – may the new year bring you greater joy & successes in all that you do!!!
Now onto the blog post proper, back in late November, Risis threw a party in style – if there’s any store party that I’ve attended and loved in 2014, it’d be Risis’ – humourous styling workshop with celebrity stylist Keith Png, beautiful jewelery, good food, makeup and nails booth – a girl’s heaven! Truth be told, I wasn’t in my best of form as I was feeling under the weather and having a bad hair day, lol. Nonetheless that didn’t keep me from enjoying the event with my friend and sweetie pie Christabelle!
Scroll down to check out my photos & captions from the event. 😉
Risis designer sharing about the collections presented and how the Christmas Special Luna collection is inspired by Orchids.
Keith demonstrating how to layer up jewellery on the hands. He also shared how to spot whether you’re warm or cool skin tone – greenish veins means warm while blueish veins means cool. My veins are greenish so I have warm skin tone. Warm skin tones suit gold coloured jewellery while cool skin tones suit silver coloured jewellery. That said, I usually have no problem wearing either – in the sense that I think I look okay with both gold and silver – and I prefer silver for day to day jewellery and wear gold for special occasions.
Keith proceeds to show us how to match jewellery for different looks and occasions, beginning with more casual and office looks.
Left to Right: Necklace from Moonlight Dance and Floral Ring collections respectively, silver is subtle and appropriate for chic and office looks.
Luna Necklaces from Luna collection in gold, for a more dressy cocktail occasion.
Layer up necklaces and rings for a more glamorous evening look.
Luna Slider Necklace extended with another chain for a versatile accessory that can even double up as a belt – such creative ideas from Keith!
Here’s Christabelle and I paying full and focused attention to Keith! That’s me with my serious face. 😛
And another one of us, with Crystal and Smita on the sofa next to Christabelle, so happy and inspired after the workshop. 🙂

We also had fun testing out Catrice makeup and nail booths!
Risis started out with gold plated sculptures, that’s just a portion of what they have available in store! These make great gifts for offices & homes, think new offices and house warming gifts.
Thank you Risis for having us!
