How Do I Holiday Like a TOWIE Girl?

Having not watched The Only Way Is Essex (TOWIE) myself, I am probably better advising you on whether to holiday in Cannes, New York, Paris or Milan. However one of the City Connect team assures me that the notoriously favourite hotspot for TOWIEs is Marbella.

Getting there is the easy bit. Easyjet flights are direct to Malaga starting at approximately £25 and if you’re already in Essex I believe these go from London Stansted too.

Once you arrive in sunny Spain, the top haunts are the designer boutiques of Puerto Banus, in my opinion a cheap knock-off of Sloane Street however extremely popular with the tourists. Whilst you’re there if you are a fan of Zara not only do they have the clothes department but they also have the home store in the marina where prices are to die for and are far cheaper than any discount sale in the UK. If you also want to look like a TOWIE girl, El Corte Ingles has a great beauty section where you can indulge in fake eyelashes, brilliant bronzers, alluring eye shadows and many make-up ranges you can’t get at home.

Once you have your clothes, make-up and beauty accessories sorted along with your fake tan, a popular place to show off your look is the nightclub Tibu which is renowned for opening until 7am throughout the summer making any walk of shame home far more noticeable and devastating.

Another member of the City Connect office recommends Nikki Beach (

This venue holds amazing events a few of which I will list below:-

30 June – Marbella Luxury Fair
This luxury weekend fair displays super cars, yachts, designer fashion shows, celebrities, fine cuisines and anything a true TOWIE girl would want.

9 July – All Time Beats Party
If dancing is what you want this party mixes the eclectic sounds of 60s soul, 70s funk, 80s classics, 90s R&B and hip hop and many more tunes to get you dancing the night away.

21 July – Diamond Party
This is definitely a TOWIE night full of glamour and glitz with the dress code of black and gold where not only will you have live music and champagne but diamond and spectacular performances will be aplenty.

28 July – Nikki Beach Bartender Challenge
If Cocktail was your favourite film of the 80s then this is the best place to be to watch gorgeous barmen wow clients with their creative cocktails and superb flare skills. If the tantalising talent isn’t enough to whet your appetite, the amazing drinks will definitely be worth it.

July & August – Nikki Beach Moonlight Dinner Experience
If you want something far more elegant and sophisticated throughout the summer months of July and August, Nikki Beach will be providing inspired cuisine worthy of Michelin stars in a fine setting with one of the most beautiful views of the Mediterranean and talented entertainment.

Having said all of that, as a non TOWIE fan and a Made in Chelsea supporter, I hope you do write back asking how to holiday as if you were in MIC because the parties are hotter and the settings far more stunning and sophisticated. However I hope you enjoy your holiday and that the suggestions from the City Connect team give you food for thought.
