Wishful Wednesday – Nicole Navigates


Hello, readers of Wishful Luxury!

I guess I should start by saying that this isn’t Louise typing. Oh no, it’s her first guest blogger as part of her new series: Wishful Wednesdays and I am super pleased to be guest blogging on her site.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Nicole and I am a Lifestyle and Travel blogger who blogs over at Nicole Navigates. I’m 23 years old and when I’m not blogging, I am working full-time as a Content Creator in Digital Marketing and Publishing.
Funnily enough, my career didn’t start off in this area of expertise, but I studied a Musical Theatre degree! But turns out, after my passion for blogging grew, I’ve ended up going down this path and I now think I’m heading in the right direction.
On my blog, I mainly cover Lifestyle and Travel. My aim is to inspire my readers that you can have it all: a successful career, money in the bank and the ability to see and travel the world. Because, why the hell not!? 
Other categories I write include food & drink, hotel reviews, dating & relationships and deaf awareness where I speak about my own experiences with having 60% hearing loss. I also write a weekly segment called ‘Thursday Thoughts‘ as I like to give a bit of a boost to my readers and to myself on the last day before Friday!
Louise and I have known each other for over ten years, as we went to school together. Plus, I can also say that I’m pleased and very excited to be one of her bridesmaids for her upcoming wedding in August (eeek) so it seemed only fitting that I was the first blogging (and real life) friend to do a guest post 😉
Feel free to come and say hi! I am always tweeting random stuff over on Twitter (I like to think I’m a comedian sometimes, ha!) I’m also on Instagram and Facebook too.

What fictional place would you most like to go?

It would have to be the Emerald City! Because I could dress in my favourite colour all day long, plus the Wizard of Oz is my favourite book/film.

What would be the most amazing adventure to go on?

It would have to be backpacking around Australia and New Zealand for months on end!

What’s your favourite drink?

I can’t go a day without coffee, so it has to be that or a glass of wine!

What is something that is considered a luxury, but you don’t think you could live without?

It would have to be my MacBook. I’ve never had one before but I use it for practically everything now!

How do you relax after a hard day of work?

I switch off social media after a certain time, tuck myself into bed with a hot drink and watch something east going on Netflix or NowTV. I’ve recently found myself doing some colouring in my colouring books. And if I really want to relax, I’ll treat myself to a Lush bath!

What is the most heartwarming thing you’ve ever seen?

Seeing my dog cuddle up next to me in the mornings makes my day!

What is one of your favourite smells?

Home baking or smells that remind me of Christmas like Gingerbread, Mulled drinks and fresh pine.

Who is/was your most interesting friend?

That’s a tough one because I think all my friends are interesting in their own way.

What do you take for granted?

My parents. Living at home is great because I’m able to save money and still live at home, but I definitely take them and what they do for me for granted. So I hope they know just how much I appreciate them.

What’s the best and worst piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Best piece of advice has to be from my mum: “Don’t get mad. Get even.” When life knocks you down, instead of getting mad, you come back bouncing and show you’ve not been defeated. Worst piece of advice has to be someone telling me to put vinegar on a stain to get rid of it (it did NOT work!)
