Need help with my Nav Bar please.

I want my nav bar to be on the top right as it currently is now. Except I need it to have a break between the nav and the page title. At this moment its seems to group them together and I cant seem to separate them. Can someone please help me with this. My website is http://hoteltraining.co/ if you would like to see it in action. Its a personal website I'm building. I know there are a few other problems with the codes but I want to deal with them one by one :)

You need to add a clearfix to your nav because you have floated elements inside of it so your nav is just being collapsed.

nav:after {
  content: "";
  display: table;
  clear: both;
}

the :after psuedo class lets you insert content onto a page without using markup. the content is just the actual content you want displayed, could be text, an image or nothing like above.

In your class heading add this

clear:both;

Se if you like the result.

That definitely helped some. I just need to separate (add space) between the nav from the break. Do you have any ideas on this part?
