Image Description: A flat-lay featuring the book One to Watch by Kate Stayman-London. to the left and top right of the book (which lays, slightly turned to the left in the center of the square frame) are two opened lipsticks in golden tubes. At the bottom right corner is a string of pearls. There are a few rings strewn to the right of the book and a ring box with an engagement ring, mirroring the image on the cover of the book which is of a plus sized woman in a pink dress and matching pink heels, holding an engagement ring behind her back. At the top left of my frame is a some gold sequined fabric as an accent.
