Kaye’s days are jam-packed with work. In the morn­ings, she works full-time as the head of a life­style web­site and in be­tween these days, she takes time to op­er­ate her busi­nesses—a home and liv­ing shop and a restau­rant.

She seems to have mas­tered the art of jug­gling a va­ri­ety of ven­tures be­cause de­spite her hec­tic sched­ule, she still man­ages to make time for her spin­ning classes and for her cats, Gray and Maui.

When it comes to beauty, this gor­geous busy bee starts her day with a light mois­tur­izer and sun­screen. She prefers to go for the nat­u­ral look or a quick makeup look as she tries to max­i­mize her time every day. At night, she puts on a sleep­ing mask or a face mask with serum for hy­dra­tion, es­sen­tial for a fresh look the next morn­ing. She shares that she never leaves home with­out her hand cream and fa­cial spray.


One ran­dom night, Kaye de­cided to dress up and go out with her col­leagues. How­ever, she was kind of feel­ing left out that night be­cause she was with an older crowd. Luck­ily, her best friend mes­saged her, ask­ing her to go with him to a gath­er­ing of his part­ners.

“It was a funny story ac­tu­ally be­cause Janus wasn’t in­ter­act­ing with me at all. He thought my best friend and I were to­gether as a cou­ple— only to find out later on that we’re not. That’s how it all started. We both share the same in­ter­ests and goals, and it’s ev­ery­thing to me. We both like watch­ing movies, trav­el­ing, food hunt­ing, and shar­ing ideas about work,” shares Kaye. “He’s very pa­tient and sup­port­ive with ev­ery­thing that I do, which is an en­dear­ing trait that I love.”

It was a fit from the start and they im­me­di­ately knew that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives to­gether, even dur­ing their first month. They share sim­i­lar goals in life and they per­fectly com­ple­ment each other.

And after be­ing to­gether for 22 months, with the pic­turesque sun­set of Seminyak Beach in Bali in the back­ground, Janus of­fi­cially asked her to be with him for the rest of his life.


Kaye wanted to look fresh, ra­di­ant, and glow­ing on her wed­ding day and this is what MJ Bor­nales cre­ated for her dur­ing the shoot.

“She is al­ready pretty to start with, we don’t want to overdo it as she doesn’t need much. I wanted her to look as she is with­out trans­form­ing her into an­other per­son. I chose to use warmer tones in ac­cen­tu­at­ing her fea­tures and let her skin nat­u­rally glow by hy­drat­ing and by high­light­ing what’s needed,” shares MJ.

Kaye wanted her eyes high­lighted so MJ used warmer tones and in­di­vid­ual lashes to achieve this, while still keep­ing the look nat­u­ral. For her hair, the half updo with soft curls hair­style made her look even more youth­ful.

“It was so easy to work with MJ and Jovit. They cre­ated my dream look for my wed­ding,” shares Kaye.
