I absolutely adore San Francisco based vlogger, LGBT advocate and YouTube wannabe  Scottie Milagro. His YouTube channel has close to 75 uploads that are beaming with fun and informative stuff. What really makes these videos so great is Scottie’s charm, sincerity and simply magnetic energy on screen. In his latest post he shares the exciting news of his recent engagement. I suggest you watch a couple of his other videos first so that you can really understand how hopelessly in-love he is. The engagement video is unlike his others as it allows viewers to see an intimate view of Scottie – flustered and floating high with emotion. He makes it absolutely impossible to not be fully committed to attending this wedding.

Scottie answers my foodie questionnaire here:

What is your favorite dessert?
I come from a big Spanish family so I have a huge soft spot for flan. It doesn’t even have to be fancy. Goya makes one that comes in a little cardboard box. Some of my best childhood memories include pouring that little box of powdered flan into a saucepan and watching it become sweet, sugary goodness.

What restaurant would you call your home?
I regret not discovering Pesce earlier, even though it’s right in my own neighborhood. It’s such a shame that another great restaurant in that building is closing its doors (remember brunch at 2223? Delicious!). Their braised octopus is my go to and it will be sorely missed. If I’m in LA, you’re guaranteed to find me at Osteria La Buca. Unpretentious, mouthwatering Italian. I almost always order the special.

What is the strangest or most inspiring thing you’ve ever eaten?
On a volunteer trip to Belize I once ate a fistful of termites. Like, literally stuck my hand into a termite nest in a tree and licked them off like a lollypop. They tasted like minty carrots if you could image that flavor combination.

What was your favorite breakfast cereal as a kid?
Lucky Charms, but just the marshmallows. I used to dump the whole box in a large mixing bowl, eat all the marshmallows in one sitting, then pour the rest of the cereal back into the box.

What is your favorite food to pig-out on after the club?
If Starbelly is still open, my tipsy cravings lead me straight to their chicken liver pâté. I realize this is a very bougie pig out food, but I can’t resist! It’s too good!

Kim Ann Foxman Eats Out

i-D Magazine – Photography – Collier Schorr / Styling – Holli Smith

Kim Ann has been setting the world on fire with music. As DJ and producer she is making dance floors sizzle everywhere she goes. Her style is by far – more than trend-setting. That new buzz cut she’s sporting these days by hair stylist Holli Smith is the cut for the summer. We met in San Francisco in the late 90’s and will forever remain enamored with each other. During a hot Pride Sunday years ago a big group of us dressed up as animals and paraded around Civic Center. We’ve spent a few Pride’s together since then. This year Kim Ann is coming back to San Francisco to be a part of my annual Pride Event which is benefiting the SF LGBT Center. Kim Ann’s Soundcloud is on constant play at my place and I think you should listen-up and press play too. Here’s a link to an exclusive mix she did for I-d Magazine.

Kim Ann has been an influential part of the musical group Hercules And Love Affair and most recently released the track Creature on the label Mr. Intl Records.

What is your favorite dessert?

Pumpkin pie and I also love mochi with all my heart.

What restaurant would you call your home?

Westville in New York City. Its literally across the street and its so good. I pretty much eat there all the time.

What is the strangest or most inspiring thing you’ve ever eaten?

The strangest thing I have ever eaten – which I really loved are called percebes, otherwise known as goose barnacles. They look so freaky – like weird claws. I was pretty scared to try one. They are quite an expensive delicacy in Spain because they are very hard to collect. They grow on rocks where the waves are crashing – so its really dangerous to harvest them. You have to twist their weird tube and suck the edible part out, but its tastes really good!!
