About Me

Barcelona, 2016

Hola! I’m Lauren (“Loh run”) — A twenty-something, engaged, English girl living on the Costa Blanca. My life is filled with sun, sea and sangria (ok, maybe not the sangria).

When I’m not cuddling with my King Charles Cavalier or hitting the pool, you can probably find me:

  • Drinking my way through coffee shops
  • Spending way too much time on Clash Royale
  • Binge watching The Big Bang Theory or Friends
  • Mouthing every word to Notting Hill
  • Scrapbooking
  • Staring at my Snowglobes (yes, really!)
  • Adding to my never-ending bucket list

Not forgetting travelling whenever we can. I love the feeling of being in a new place, the new experiences, the new views and I just love sunsets and elephants.

I started this blog in January 2018, whilst still working as an English tutor and studying a degree in Spanish. I wanted to be part of something bigger. A community. Share my ideas. Meet new people. Get my voice heard. I had so much to say, but nowhere to write it.

That’s how Diary of a Spanglish Girl was born. 

Spanglish is a hybrid language of both Spanish and English. I find myself losing vocabulary in Spanish and English. Some things just sound better in another language, you know? But would I change it? Absolutely not.

I hope you’ll stick around and see what I’m up to next.

Hasta luego,
