Happy Friday, mateys! Ruby Assembly has officially been back at work for a full week now – and it’s been chock-a-block full o’ fun. We’ve got some AMAZING new collaborations upcoming in the first quarter of 2013, including a Valentine’s Day blogging feature with a jewelry brand many of you know and love. Our lips are sealed for now – stay tuned and subscribe to the blog for more details and a chance to win some new glittery accessories!

Today’s little piece features our morning adventure to the freshly-opened Market Lane Coffee on Faraday Street in Carlton, just next to Baker D. Chirico. See how happy and alert I’m looking above? That’s coz I had just enjoyed a delightful pourover coffee and Baker D. Chirico almond croissant to match while chatting to Mr. Ruby Assembly and a colleague. The Market Lane Coffee venue is much like a pop-up; a stylish little ‘hole in the wall’ with a corridor to sit in and sup on your caffeinated treat, perhaps with a little somthin’ somthin’ from the kind bakers next door in hand. It’s a fine addition to Carlton proper, and a great compliment to the reputed bakery. After all, how enjoyable can a garibaldi really be without an espresso to wash it down?

Yellow buttery layers. And that’s just my pleated dress from Seed Heritage, I haven’t even got onto the confection of almond filling my croissant contained. Happy Friday y’all!
