A Few weeks ago I met Christine at the Trader Joe's in Beverly Hills. I accidentally cut her and another woman in line because I didn't know how the lines work. I moved from Cleveland, Ohio and it was my first day there. I know that woman was so mad at me and making crazy rude faces at me. I had to finally ask her "were in you in front of me?" I apologized and said there is no reason to be mean about it . Things like that don't bother me, all I can do is be nice. But then there was Christine, with a smile, so inviting and so nice . Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me and thank you for making my first day in California Beautiful, it has been hard. You remind me of me! hahaha . Thank you for the E- book " Life on a Beverly Hills." I just finished reading it. How inspiring and positive , Thank you for sharing your stories, all the advice, and all the freebies !!! I know I don't know you that well but I know you are a beautiful person in and out and I hope you continue to share your love to others !
so glad I met you

I first met Christine Redlin at Cinequest in San Jose, California. She is truly one of the most inspiring people I've ever had a conversation with, and someone who is living in a very exciting place of "what's possible?" When I found out about her eBook, I knew I had to read it to get a little insight into her world. I made my coffee at home that day, and spent my Starbucks money on this eBook. Money well spent :)

Christine is so positive in the way that she lives her life, it's really extraordinary. I wish I knew more people like her. This book is full of tips for budgeting, and full of tips about living a beautiful life. She is an inspiration to me. Her positivity is truly incredible. I can't rave enough about her.

Whether you live in Beverly Hills, California, or any other city in the World--there is much to be learned from this book.

Review by: Amy Livingston on April 14, 2013 :
This book desperately needed an editor. The grammar, the punctuation, the sentence structure, all were below the level I expect from a blog that I can read online for free, let alone a book that I would normally have to pay for. The author says lightheartedly, "I write in a “blonde blabbing,” conversational style," but personally, I didn't find it conversational; I found it unreadable. I honestly can't say whether this book provided any useful information, because I just couldn't bring myself to read beyond the first couple of pages. I'm giving it two stars based on the likelihood that there was actually some good information in there that I never forced my way through to.

Wow! What a comprehensive listing of free offerings in the City of Beverly Hills! Who would have thought to look for freebies in one of the world's most expensive communities? Great guide for seeing the City on a dime!

I read this delightful book and enjoyed it all. The book is informative and insightful. I found myself changing my way of looking at life, and admiring the writer for creating a "cup is full" kind of life despite all. She certainly Creates her life with a capital C. This is certainly a book worth reading. I recommend it.

Christine Redlin shares a book full of real-world anecdotes that will entertain you, motivate you, and provide you with tips for your everyday life. The fact that it’s set in Beverly Hills makes it that much more unique! Who doesn’t fantasize about living a life in Beverly Hills brushing shoulders with celebrities and personalities? But who can afford it? Christine shows you how the girl next door did for years. This book is full of cost saving tips, money earning secrets, and creative ways to live within your means, in Beverly Hills and beyond. I learned that a great place to visit (for FREE) in Beverly Hills is the Greystone Mansion. Christine even provides web links to many of her tips!

Buy this book for your girlfriend, wife, mom, or yourself! Men should read it too. The chapter on Christine’s car stories is hilarious! Who knew that gun patches could easily fix a leaky convertible top until you saved up enough for a new one?! Very creative!

Highly recommended reading!
