Get To Know Our Woman Crush This Week – Nicole Derseweh!

Name: Nicole Derseweh
Nicole Derseweh (IG: nicolederseweh) is a world-class vegan chef with a culinary background from Le Cordon Bleu and comes from a long heritage of family chefs
Nicole Derseweh is a world-class vegan chef with a culinary background from Le Cordon Bleu and comes from a long heritage of family chefs. She is building a worldwide, conscious media empire to inspire vegan newbies with her inspiring and entertaining YouTube channel as one of the cornerstones. You can currently experience her creations at high-end events and exclusive pop-up dinners in and around the Los Angeles area. She has recently appeared on the Cooking Channel as well as many publications such as VegNews,Thrive Magazine and Citizine.
Her innovative and delicious plant-based creations consistently impress even the most skeptical critics. She is hardworking, professional and extremely creative. Her passion is to share the love, excitement and compassion of vegan living through decadent dishes that persuade even the most ardent meat lovers to smile in delight.
This vegan socialite is delightfully quirky and refreshingly off beat as she innocently blurts out truths like a little kid saying the most unexpected things. She’s effortlessly funny – a “big sister” type who deeply values close friendships and family. She has a fierce warrior heart to match her skills in the kitchen and is not afraid to throw down and get dirty in the name of fitness. In essence, she’s the vegan love child of Rachel Ray and Louis CK!
We love Nicole because she is a superstar vegan chef in our eyes! In fact, we consider her the vegan love child of Rachel Ray and Louis CK!  Most importantly, she understands the importance of making other’s lives easier by making sure her temple is properly nourished. As such, she shared three ways that she practices self-love.
Read them below!
1. I add a little bit of rosewater to my water bottle daily because drinking rose water makes me feel like a princess!
2.  I take myself on nature dates usually doing sunset hikes with the dogs ,taking in the gorgeous views smiling and giggling out loud because I’m grateful to be alive.
3. OK… this one silly but I’ve been doing it since I’m a kid so I’m just not going to stop ever. Sometimes I sneak kisses to myself…even if I’m in conversation with somebody! 😂  If I’m curled up on the couch I might just quickly smooch the top of my knee, or sometimes I turn my head to the side and give myself a little kiss on the shoulder.. it is funny but it always makes me smile. 


Get To Know Latham Thomas – Our Women Crush Wednesday!

Over the next few weeks, we will be highlighting men and women who serve as our Women Crush Wednesdays (#WCW) and Man Crush Mondays (#MCM). Get to know our first #WCW below:
Name: Latham Thomas
Latham Thomas (IG: @GlowMaven) is a doula, yogi and women’s wellness expert, founder of lifestyle brand @MamaGlow and author of bestselling book on pregnancy, Mama Glow and forthcoming book, OWN YOUR GLOW: A Soulful Guide to Luminous Living And Crowning The Queen Within. She lives in NYC.
We love Latham because she is a fellow advocate of holistic health & wellness. She understands the importance of taking care of herself, so that she can take care of others. As such, she shared three “glow” tips that she has for self-love.
Read them below!
1. SET HEALTHY BOUNDARIES 
You need to be able to distinguish between what to allow into your realm and what needs to stay outside. Create boundaries in the workplace, at home, and in relationships. Women have inherited a legacy of taking on more than we can handle; we must activate the power of the word no. Pleasing others at the expense of ourselves is a habit that you must commit to challenge. Practice saying no.
2. TAKE A NAP
That’s right, nap time is no longer for toddlers. When we take naps, we create space for our dreams. We allow the body to recover from the stress of our day and accelerated living. If you’re too busy during the week to take an 8-to-20-minute nap, set aside some time on the weekend to tuck yourself into your bed or find a nice cozy resting space, put your legs up the wall for leg drain and catch some Zs.
3. GET BAREFOOT
Remember how much fun it was to get your feet dirty and play outside as kids? I love to get outside and garden and sink my feet into the nutritive soil. Soil has micro-organisms, minerals, immune factor and provides an electromagnetic charge that calibrates the body’s electric charge. The earth grounds us. If you live in a city, you can practice this in parks where there is open space and un-treated grass.
