Work With Me

IMG_0828

Nicole Navigates is a Lifestyle, Food & Travel blog based in Northamptonshire. I am always interested in working with PR's and brands who are equally as interested in working with me and believe my blog would make a good fit.

I regularly work on blog collaborations and have been known to work on some successful campaigns and maintain good relationships with PR's that fit into my lifestyle, food and travel niche.

I also have a passion for working with local businesses in the Northamptonshire area too and have worked with several local companies on campaigns and events.

Please note:

  • I don't accept pre-written content on my blog. I like everything on here to be original and to be written by myself. No exceptions.
  • All links to any branded campaigns will be no-follow according to Google's guidelines.
  • All gifted products or sponsored posts will be clearly disclaimed in the footer and/or at the beginning of a blog post.

Who have I worked with?

I'm particularly keen to collaborate with local Northamptonshire brands and restaurants including The Proper Pub Co, Epic Heroic Pubs, Toby Carvery, The Albion Brewery, LUSH Northampton, Hibiscus Fine Dining and many more.

I'm also a HUGE foodie and love food festivals, where I have been lucky to have been invited to local one's like Althorp Food Festival, Northampton Winter Food Festival and Towcester Food Festival.

I work with Royal & Derngate and OnStage Northants on a regular basis to do theatre reviews, which combines my two passions: theatre and Northamptonshire.

Lifestyle and Travel collaborations I have worked on with include hotel reviews for Kettering Park Hotel and Chicheley Hall Hotel, plus, I've been lucky to go on an AirBnB tour in Rome and work with Eurochange who gifted me a cash passport.

One of my biggest collaborations to date was with Debenhams when I worked on their party wear campaign, where I got to have a fabulous night out with bloggers, whilst creating some awesome content wearing their sparkly party wear!

So yeah... I've been lucky to have worked with lots of local and big brands! Fancy being added to this list? Let's talk about collaborations!

  • [AD - Gifted] The most colourful of Afternoon Teas!

Happy Monday! National Afternoon Tea Week may be over, but I’ve got a review that went live yesterday from when we visited @sundialhighgate for my birthday and had this lovely spread 😍 I even got a little ‘happy birthday’ treat too! It’s definitely up there as one of the best!

My schedule has been a little shifted this weekend due to being unwell, which I may add I’m still trying to get over now 🙈 so you’re getting two blog posts in 2 days which means the Afternoon Tea Guide is coming today! 🙌🏻 and then I’ve got one more review to share some point this week and we can say goodbye to Afternoon Tea for a while 😂 but I hope you have loved it as much as I have!

Did you enjoy all the content I shared last week? What was your highlight of National Afternoon Tea Week? ☕️ #NavigatingNorthants

  • Let’s spill the tea... Happy Saturday! Though I’m not feeling on my best form this morning 🤧 full of cold, a sore throat and a banging headache which has come out of nowhere, but Josh has ran to the shops to get me some Lemsip and chocolate 🍫 so I’m pretty sure their vital ingredients to get better with, right?

I’ve got one more Afternoon Tea review to go live hopefully today, before I release my Northamptonshire Afternoon Tea Guide! 🍰 I’ve got 10 places on my list, which is the biggest guide I’ve ever written for the blog! I’m excited to share it!

For now, it’s bed rest for me and plenty of tea. I wouldn’t mind having a lovely big teapot like I did when we visited @goodloafuk for a pot of tea! ☕️ I’m usually a coffee person, but there’s something about tea that is great when you’re not feeling 100%

Tell me what makes you feel better when you’re not well? Does sugar and tablets help or are you into natural remedy’s? #NavigatingNorthants
  • [AD - Gifted] Did someone say Afternoon G&Tea? 🍸 chin, chin!

Happy Friday everyone! If you’re looking for an Afternoon Tea with a twist and a boozy element, @ginandtemple have got it covered! ❤️ not only is there cake, finger sandwiches and traditional scones, but you get a personalised teapot of gin that suits your exact liking and taste preferences - how utterly British does this tea set up look? 😍 I want to drink @ginraw gin and other gins from a teapot more often!

The food is provided by The Sandwich Bar on Bridge Street, which is so nice to see two local businesses collaboratively work together 🥰 everything tasted great and was all enjoyed in a super quirky place!

I’ll be adding this to my Northamptonshire Afternoon Tea Guide which is coming this weekend 🙌🏻 and I’ll be sharing a full review probably sometime next week as this week, we are 100% Afternoon Tea MAD! 🤪 totally okay with it if you guys are!

Would you like me to host another foodie National Week sometime in the future? If so, let me know which ones and I can certainly make it into a regular thing and tailor it to Northamptonshire! 💛 #NavigatingNorthants #NationalAfternoonTeaWeek
  • [AD - Gifted] My facial expression when you get Afternoon Tea in front of me 😍 especially if there’s cake!

This delightful set up was courtesy of @rockinghamcastle1 when we went to explore their castle grounds and were treated to a splendid afternoon tea in their Walker’s House Tea Room ☕️ its one of the many places included in my Northants Afternoon Tea Guide!

Today’s blog post is now live and it’s from mine and my best friends visit to @fawsleyhallhotel where we experienced our first vegan Afternoon Tea 🌱 there wasn’t much difference but the blog post goes into detail on both

It’s opened my mind into trying more vegan eats in the area and I know I can rely on @cooking_it_vegan and @clarissaxfood for foodie inspiration! Where else should I check out in the area? 😋 #NavigatingNorthants #NationalAfternoonTeaWeek

  • NATIONAL AFTERNOON TEA WEEK!

For the final day of afternoon tea week, we thought we would share a picture of our greatest showman themed tea! We had so much fun doing this!

The concept of a themed afternoon tea is something we really love - we love working with a theme and letting our imaginations run wild. If you are having a themed party/event, and would like a themed afternoon tea, please get in touch ❤️ #nationalafternoonteaweek #afternoontea #vintagechina #teaparty #greatestshowman #weddingplanning #weddingideas #navigatingnorthants #northamptonshire #kettering #vintage

  • National Afternoon Tea Week!

Very late in the week to be posting about this but have been busy supplying sandwiches, sweets and savouries for nearly 150 afternoon teas at 2 weddings this week! That’s also on top of entertaining 25 8-14 year olds all week doing a holiday cookery activity course!

These are some beautiful new pieces I’ve recently added to my afternoon tea collection. We really are a family business as even my mother in law was out scouting the charity shops whilst on her holiday and found the beautiful glass bowls perfect for scones at bigger parties!

Have you managed to squeeze in an afternoon tea this week to celebrate?
