Kelly Misa in the City: Who Says Living in the Metro Has to be Stressful?
12 Sep 2019EXPERIENCEBY SweetEscape

You might associate ‘fun’ and ‘relax’ with beach resorts or mountain villas, but being in the heart of the city has its perks and doesn’t always have to be a hassle. We had the pleasure of shooting with model, television host, beauty columnist, lifestyle blogger, and mum Kelly Misa recently and caught up a bit on the beauty of city living.

1. What do you love about living in the city?

by Mark for SweetEscape in Makati

I love being central to my work and to my family and friends. It is really convenient given I don’t need to travel far to get to my destination. Also, all the best groceries and markets are in the city (my priorities because I’m a mom) and it’s just more accessible to live within Metro Manila.

2. What are some of your favorite restaurants and bars?

Being a mom to a toddler who just recently started school, I rarely go out. But as a family, we love eating out and trying new restaurants. One restaurant I recently tried and loved is Pablo Bistro in Salcedo Village. They serve the most amazing goat cheese salad as well as grilled octopus! Amazing! And just next door is Cartel Deli where you can find excellent coffee.

3. How do you spend your weekends?

My weekends are spent with family. Most times we spend our time together at home but once in awhile we go out and try a new restaurant, check in a hotel to go on a staycation or drive out of town to Tagaytay or to the beach in Batangas.

4. Where do you usually go to work out, detox or destress?

I go to One Life Studio in Alabang for one on one Pilates sessions. This has really helped me stretch out my muscles, strengthen my core, and fix my posture.

5. What's in a city girl's makeup kit?

A warm shimmery blush! I love Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color blush in Terrarose, and a pinkish nude lippie, MAC Velvet Teddy. Usually that’s all I wear everyday.

6. How was your experience booking SweetEscape in the city?

SweetEscape has been an absolute joy… I have captured so many amazing photos from my travels all over the world thanks to this photography app and I really can’t ask for anything more. The photographers are always kind and accommodating, and so patient with my son to get that perfect family photo.
