Karina Miller Blog 6: Blazing party at Nikki Beach Marbella 201805-08-2018
What would we all do without friends in our lives? Seriously I’m just thinking about that, what would we do without them? We choose them and they choose us. Our families we are born with and as much we love our siblings we don’t choose them.
Friendship is something else altogether, something that just clicks with another human being.
|Me and my Ukrainian friend Aliona Gumenyuk we have been friends for around five years now 2018
My oldest friends I have had since I was a teenager and I still walk into their houses, open their fridge door and say “Got anything to eat.” Even if I haven’t seen them for a year it’s still always the same.
A strong friendship doesn’t need daily conversation, doesn’t always need togetherness, as long as the relationship lives in the heart, true friends will never part. That beautiful bond that is unbreakable and not because you are blood but because you truly love each other and want to be in each other's lives.
My books are all about friendships and some of the stories are based on my real relationships with my friends.
The crazy stories of our lives together when we were both single definitely inspired me. Being single with your close friend is like a whole other world of friendship. It's like no one else on the planet understands you except her. That friend that you do crazy shit with, things that no friend in a couple situation would ever understand.

One friend, in particular, is my Ukrainian friend Aliona Gumenyuk we have been friends for around five years now. She is not my oldest friend but our single time together was so intense that I feel like I have known her all my life.
We met in Sinatra bar on the port at Puerto Banus one evening. Instantly we clicked and we both felt super comfortable with each other right from the start. I had found one of my herd she was giraffe amongst sheep, classy, beautiful and elegant. She stood out from the crowd, so tall and proud.
This was the start of what was going to be a lifelong friendship and we were about to embark on a crazy couple of years in a single land.
Wow, the fun we had in Marbella was just insane, the life of two single women partying like crazy, three/four times a week, non-stop laughter, no stop drinking and non-stop situations.
In fact, the second time we met up with decided to go to Nikki Beach for one of their, Amazing Sunday, parties.
Aliona had never been the party girl but took to it like a duck to water. This was back in the day when Nikki Beach was a lot smaller, no swimming pool but packed with an atmosphere that was intoxicating from the minute that you stepped inside. The music is pumping as we walk down the road, this always makes me a little giddy in anticipation of what was about to happen. As we walk in it’s like walking into another world. The atmosphere is electric.

All the tables under the palm trees are full of buckets of champagne and massive platters of seafood. The waiters are all buzzing around, rushing from one table to another. The huge round bar in the middle is full of beautiful bikini-clad girls in high heels with long legs and super peachy bums.
As we walk in we noticed that there were some guys on a table with 30-liter bottles of champagne. As soon as they saw us that was it, one of them came over and before we knew it we were partying with a load of guys from London. Bear in mind that this is only the second time I had been in Aliona’s company. Hahaha
Oh wow, after an hour in their company we were completely fluffy on the champagne and it was time for a little wonder.
“We will be back guys.” We tell them as leave the table champagne glass in hand. “Let’s go see what’s going on,” I say giggling my little ass off. As we walk, we dance and talk to everyone who was on exactly the same wavelength. Pissed up and happy! Hahaha
The DJ is firing out the tunes and there is a feeling of euphoria as the sax man and violinist are doing their thing. We stop and dance as the dual drummers are rocking the whole place. Everyone is jumping dancing and laughing, having the best time of their lives.
As we are dancing we start having a laugh and talking to some gorgeous Swedish guys next to us, tall blonde and seriously handsome and totally yummy. Much younger but who cares! We certainly didn’t at the time. “Oh shit maybe we should go back to the guys at the table,” I say to Aliona as I realize we had been gone for a while.

As we arrive back the music stops for a moment. The signature tune for when the crates of champagne are being carried out begins to play. 'We will rock you' starts pumping as the crates are coming towards our table full of bottles. “Oh, Jesus babe they are coming to this table.” Before we knew it 60 bottles of champagne were being sprayed over everyone. The whole place erupted with everyone spraying champagne everywhere you looked. Total madness had ensued!
We ran for cover as there is nothing worse than getting soaked in champagne when you have done your hair and makeup. Hahaha
That night we ended up in an unbelievable villa full of Swedish people, kissing some gorgeous hunks under the stars. Hahaha, this was an initiation we would never forget.
I was so surprised at how easy Aliona had fitted into the whole scene. This was just the beginning of the madness and our endless stories together.
If you want to read my books there is plenty of those situations there throughout both books to keep you laughing.
Even though our lives have changed now, we still have fun whenever we are together when I'm back in Marbella or together in London. It doesn't really matter where we are we always have fun and we are always laughing.
Great friends are truly a blessing especially when you are single. Hahaha
