From festivals every summer to boujie nights out: Inside Samie’s life before Love Island

Her fringe era was iconic


Samie and Tom came third in the winter Love Island series and have since moved onto some pretty exciting things. Before entering the villa, Samie was an estate agent coordinator and now her world is like never before.

From Samie’s Instagram alone she is a massive vibe and can rock any hairstyle. Here’s everything you need to know about Love Island’s Samie Elishi’s incredible life before she reached Love Island fame.

Samie is a big fan of festivals and every summer she’s at one

Samie’s Instagram is full of stunning snaps of the Islander and for a lot of them, she is living it up and some of the best festivals. Just last summer Samie was living her best life at the We Are FSTVL, a music festival that a ton of influencers and former Islanders were invited to last year.

Samie has also been to the Dream Valley festival which is an art and dance music festival that takes place in Kent. Samie’s first Instagram post was a photo of her at Wireless Festival, so you just know her playlists are iconic.

She can rock ANY hairstyle

Love Island viewers will recognise Samie for her curly locks or straight hairstyles in the villa, but she once had a fringe and bangs and absolutely rocked it. It was only last year Samie had a fringe and she debuted the look in February, just days before Valentine’s Day.

It seems she got the new hairstyle for her birthday and she captioned the debut post: “Early birthday celebrations”. Samie is 23 years old and she celebrated her birthday in the villa this year, just one day after the Casa Amor fallout. It’s safe to say she has probably had better birthdays.

She loves a summer holiday to Cyprus

Samie is always on holiday from the looks of her Instagram and she has visited some truly amazing places including Cannes and Paris in France, Lake Como in Italy and she has frequently visited Cyprus.

From some of Samie’s earlier Instagram photos and more recent ones, she loves a trip to Cyprus. Over the years, Samie has visited Larnaca and Ayia Napa in Cyprus.

Clearly Love Island’s Samie Elishi’s life as an estate agent coordinator pays well as Samie has taken trips to Rome, Milan and Lake Como, all in the same year. She is also a fan of the races and in June last year she posted a photo of her at Ascot. Alongside that, Samie is always looking stunning at a fancy restaurant or two, including Bocconcino Mayfair and OXBO Bankside.

Samie lives and works in London and her role has an average earning of £40,000. It’s likely everyone will be patiently waiting to see what stunning location she travels to this summer and what festivals she will tick off of her bucket list.
