Yefon the Red Necklace Book Review Tour ‪#‎yefontherednecklace‬




A powerful, emotional tale of ambition and courage by Cameroonian-born Sahndra Fon Dufe, the Common Wealth of Nations recognized author of ‘Dear momma’. (2004)

Yefon: The RedNecklace (YRN) is the first book of the YEFON trilogy series. It will have you wrapped up with emotions you didn’t know you had!

Young tribal girl, Yefon Labam, knows she’s different.

During the 1950′s, in her Central African village, women are uneducated and are expected to either work on a farm or be one of many wives, but Yefon dares for more—she wants to learn how to read, even if looking at a book could mean her death.  Although everyone thinks she’s an abomination, including her mother and sisters, her father knows she’s destined for greater things.

When he is murdered, Yefon clings to the gift he gave her for inspiration—a red necklace. She soon comes to realize that the necklace is no ordinary ornament, but a talisman crafted by the spirits. Yefon walks a dangerous path that could lead to her freedom…or her death.

THE TRILOGY BEGINS…..

5% from the sales of EACH copy of YEFON hardcover novel is going to one of the following charities:

LOURDES COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS
BUI SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS ( MamaVerla Project)
WORLD LITERARY CRUSCADE
TERRERAI TRENT’s TINOGONA FOUNDATION (http://www.tinogona.org/)

My Review

This book was very inspiring for me. I loved the character Yefon and her desire to learn and also how the author portrayed each of the characters in the story. It really made me feel like I was there. I found it very interesting to learn about how she grew up as their culture is so much different from mine. I can’t wait to read more.

6 Tips for a Successful Garage Sale



Garage sales are a great way to make a little extra cash, while getting rid of things you don’t need or use anymore. Sometimes they go great, but sometimes they don’t.

I love to shop at garage sales and have seen awesome sales, and not so great sales. Here are some tips to get people to your garage sale and make it successful one.

6 tips for a successful garage sale

1. Plan your sale at the right time

Have your garage sale at the same time as others in your area. When I go out to garage sales, I like to know that there are many I can go to in one trip. Around here, most garage sales are on Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning. Also, many towns have a citywide or neighborhood wide garage sale day so check into that before you pick your date.

2. Put out signs

Make sure they have large enough writing to be read from a car. I would put the words garage sale, the dates and hours, and an arrow on my signs. You can put the address if you want, but make sure it is written large enough to be easily read. Put them on busy street corners near you and put up more signs to lead them directly to you if there is more than a couple blocks between your sale and the sign.

And, please take down your signs when your sale is over (especially if you don’t write dates and times).

3. Be specific in your ads

If you put an ad in the paper or on Craigslist, list the items you have a lot of, including children’s clothing sizes, and your large items. If you just say that you have lots of stuff, you probably won’t get people to your sale who are looking for the types of items you have.

4. Put stuff outside your garage

If you have everything inside the garage, people don’t think you have much and are less likely to stop. If you put some stuff outside, people can see some of what you have and if they see something they like, they are much more likely to stop.

5. Keep your prices reasonable

People go to garage sales to find a deal. If your prices are too expensive, you won’t sell much. You will make more money and sell more if you keep your prices a little lower. Try to think of what you would pay for the item at a garage sale if you were looking for it and price your item similar.

6. Organize your things

Put all similar things together. Toys, clothes, crafts, housewares, etc. People will be much more likely to buy something if they can find what they are looking for easily. They won’t dig through boxes to find things. I have, on occasion, looked through totes of children’s clothes, but only when the totes each had one size of clothing.

7 Ways to Save on Your Wedding



Your wedding is a very important day. It is also a very expensive day. Here are a few tips you can use to save a little cash and still have a beautiful wedding.

7 ways to save on your wedding

The biggest thing is to set a budget and stick to it. This means you may have to spend less on things that are less important to you. Make a list of everything you will need for the wedding and order it by how important it is to you. Then you will have a better idea of where to spend and where to save.

1. Invitations

Wedding Invitation

When I was choosing invitations for my wedding, I discovered that the most expensive invitations were similar to ones I could make myself. I made my invitations 3 layers and tied them at the top with a ribbon. I was able to fit 4 invitations on one sheet of paper to save even more.

I also chose to use a postcard for my save the date cards. I printed them myself and didn’t have to spend extra money on envelopes and the postage is cheaper.

Stay away from square cards as they cost extra to mail.

2. Photographer

Your wedding photos are one of the most important part of your day because you will get to keep them forever. You will want to get great photos but $3,000+ may be out of your price range. Look at photos from different photographers and find a style that you like and is in your price range. You can also find a photographer that will give you rights to print the photos wherever you like. That way, you only need to order the prints you want and you can make extras if you need them in the future.

3. Venue and Date

Your reception is probably the most expensive part of your wedding. Churches are usually inexpensive but they aren’t for everyone. An off-season wedding is cheapest. Weekdays are also less expensive than weekends but you may run into scheduling conflicts with your guests if they have to travel far. Also avoid holidays and weekends around holidays as they will be the most expensive.

You may want to try a Saturday morning wedding. I went to a great wedding on a Saturday morning. They served lunch and we played lawn games outside afterward. That was a fun wedding. They saved a lot by serving lunch instead of supper and skipping the dance.

4. Ask Your Family and Friends to Help

Do you have any family members who play the piano? Maybe you’re related to a DJ or caterer? They may offer services for free or at a discount.

5. Wedding Party

The larger your wedding party is, the more money you will have to spend. You could also opt to have your bridesmaids buy their own dresses. A good idea would be to choose a color and have your bridesmaid choose a style since they will be buying the dress. It’s possible they would be able to wear it again for another event.

6. Flowers

Use flowers that are in season and are less expensive. Orchids, calla lilies, and lily of the valley are among the most expensive flowers to have in your bouquet. If you choose flowers that are less expensive, like sunflowers, daisies, gladiolas, roses, or stephanotis, you can save a pretty penny.

The bridesmaids could also each hold one flower like a lily or rose, while the bride has a bouquet.

Talk to your florist and see what flowers you like that fall in your budget.

7. Favors

Favors are neat, but let’s face it. Who bothers with the favors after they get home (if they even make it home). Instead, opt for something very inexpensive or skip them all together. Some candy on the table would probably be more enjoyable for your guests than most favors.
