The happenings of this past year were quite significant for my personal life, as well as my career, and I’m ending this year motivated to keep working towards the growth of this space from what it started seven years ago in my college apartment. I found a place by accident in the digital world by googling something that I didn’t even know existed at the time, which all of a sudden became a portal to a road that I never thought I could ever trek. It’s been seven years of running this blog, and my enthusiasm is still the same as it was in the beginning. It’s been hard work (post coming on that soon), but this blog is the perfect example of showing the pay offs of working with passion to pursue the things you love to do. It’s allowed me to not just share the indulgences I love like clothing and fashion, but it allowed me to speak my mind on topics beyond just those things because I think the story behind it all is the most important. A visual story board with words to match. I hope this space allows you to have a place to speak your mind, too. Looking forward to year 8 of WWW.DYLANASUAREZ.COM. And looking forward to many more words to be shared. Each year has shown many shining stars, all of which I have kept in my pocket to remind me to reach for them even more the next time around 🙂

What a long and beautiful weekend to come back from. My Wednesday to Sunday was fantastically spent partially in the Connecticut suburbs with my lovely friend Christina and her family, and partially home in NYC where my Brooklyn abode felt like the ultimate haven. I woke up at 10AM every morning. Each day a steady swing of this and that, but nothing rushed, my usual routine strung out long and wide. And each night was ended with a cup of sleepy tea, and my bed and my body became one. It was the perfect few days to reset before getting thrown into the December craziness (holidays and work included!). There’s so much content I want to get up on here for you guys, so stay tuned. So now . . . onto other important things in the life of a fashion blogger . . . the weather.

NYC’s fickle mindset has finally shifted for good, and everyone has gone into full on winter mode. And with every switch in the season, there seems to be an update in statement item. For me this season, that item is my Jocelyn chevron fur coat. It’s probably the warmest piece of outerwear that I own. So reliable cozy, capturing every bit of heat from my body and keeping it close, close by to me for what seems like forever. The act of plucking it off my rack each morning before heading out of my apartment has suddenly become second nature, and for good reason. NYC winter’s are harsh, as if you guys didn’t already know. They make walking down the block to the corner store an excruciating activity. Almost as bad, or maybe worse, than going to the dentist. And all the money I spend on cold weather accessories just get thrown out the window as I lose beanies, mittens and scarves in random places throughout he city. An aggravating truth us city dwellers cannot escape. My skin is dry to the point that it sometimes hurts. Not to mention, my nose and ears start to feel like absolutely nothing that there is no point in hearing or smelling. I complain to my superintendent at least once a week about why the heater isn’t staying on throughout the night. Instead, I light a million candles by my bed to keep my and the three sweaters I’ve layered on company. And let me tell you, that’s a fire hazard waiting to happen. Winter, you come and you go and you never make it easier on us. But at least now, in the form of a chevron painted cuddle monster, I don’t feel you quite as much. Hardly at all actually, so that walking down the street is actually quite the delight. And you don’t find many people saying that round here too often. Good luck staying warm peeps.

Sunday Favorite | AP Cafe

November 13, 2016

ap-cafe-brooklyn-2
I’m take pride in my neighborhood. And yes, I think that the best places to eat are in Brooklyn. Many in Bushwick, such as the lovely, well-lit and very Instagram-worthy AP Cafe. I can walk to this spot on a late Saturday morning from my apartment and never have to worry about waiting for a seat. The burger here is diviiiineeeee. I’ve been bopping around all of New York City since 2013 taste testing what should be the best burger in town, but none have yet beat the one from AP Cafe. The caramelized onions add the most phenomenal touch. Complete with a side of the thinnest, crispiest fries that came straight from heaven I promise you. For those looking for a healthier, and less indulgent option that is still well-rounded, the kale pesto quinoa bowl (I like to add chicken to this), is a great choice. I could take pesto on just about everything. AP Cafe just gets it right every time, all the way down to the succulents that add a simple delicacy that makes this one of the best places to get work done if you are just in a mood for a good coffee. If you ever have the chance to explore Bushwick, make sure to come by this spot for a coffee, a burger, a donut, or any of the other delicious plates they have on their menu. You’ll be back for sure.
