The Sam Faiers definition of an 'Essex Girl': A stylish, hard-working, big-hearted and family-minded young woman found in Brentwood or nearby areas (and Marbs). At the start of 2010 Sam Faiers was a normal 19-year-old girl from Brentwood: she was working in a local bank, plotting a glamour modelling career and planning what outfit to wear to Sugar Hut. Then the first episode of TOWIE aired, and suddenly Sam was catapulted into a world of champagne cocktails, TV studios, nightclubs and paparazzi.
In Living Life the Essex Way, Sam lifts the lid on her childhood, her rise to fame and her beauty regime, as well as her dating rules, dealing with instant fame, the men in her life and what really goes on behind the scenes on the hit ITV2 show.

It’s weird, because it is like a different world from Essex, but at the same time they go through a lot of the same things as us. I always say though, no matter how good it is, TOWIE is still the best! The way filming works is that we are told how many weeks the show will be on for, and we have to keep those free, while still living our normal lives, if you get what I mean. So, for example, if I
