iamthenublack: Nikole Crowe of Moptop Maven

Introduce yourself

I am Nik; I’m a giver of life, a seat shifter, highly inquisitive, crafty, and loyal. I run a blog called The Moptop Maven that started this year as part of a New Years resolution to stick with something for longer than one month. In my blogzine, I discuss everything from natural hair care, DIY projects, to recipe’s and mini courses on self-advancement. – When I’m not blogging, you can catch me roaming the Jewelry District in Downtown L.A, as making jewelry is what pays my bills!

Favourite lyric from a song
“I got now, I don’t care who got next”

– Jay Z/Hovi Baby

Who and what inspires you?

Oprah & Beyonce are two people that inspire me; their work ethic is impeccable, and they always give 200% to their craft.

Art also inspires me, I love to be visually stimulated; some of my favorites at the moment are pieces from Basquiat, Lawrence Kupferman, and Salvador Dali. 

Icons past & present
Past Icons: Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye, Eartha Kitt, as they were all “Iconic Game-Changers”  
Present Icons: Oprah Winfrey, Tyra Banks, Beyonce, and our President; Mr. Barack Obama
