In memory of Nanny Pat...

We are absolutely devastated to hear the sad news about our beloved Nanny Pat. Patricia has been at the heart of TOWIE from the very beginning and we will miss her terribly. Our thoughts are with the Wright family at this very sad time.

... One of the things we love about Essexmas is how it gets us all feeling cozy. BIG HATS AND BLANKETS ON THE BEACH, AHOY! ...

... After the Essex peeps got back from Essex, they had a big ol' winter party and our gals looked freakin' awesome. They put the 'ice' in 'nice'...
