Our RL Reader of the Week is Irene Evangelista. Irene lives in San Pedro, Laguna. She has been reading the magazine since 2008. 

Real Living (RL): What do you love best about Real Living?

Irene: I get a lot of ideas from Get the Look. It  motivates me to improve our home and turn it into a Real Living-inspired space.

RL:  What are the biggest lessons that you have learned from Real Living?

Irene: I've learned that a tight budget is not a problem and should not discourage anyone from beautifying their homes. Rather than spending a fortune on expensive furniture and decorations, one should make use of [their] talent and skills. The key is to be creative. I personally like repurposing old furniture pieces, visiting thrift shops, playing with colors and "DIY-ing" our decors.
