I’m Heather and welcome to ‘My Spanish Vida’.

My Spanish Vida is a lifestyle blog where I like to share snippets of our life here on the Costa Blanca, in Southern Spain. Along with my general everyday life musings, fashion finds and #BeachLife I hope you find the blog entertaining, helpful and inspiring.


The previous blog  Some of you may know me from my previous blog Suncream and Sparkles, which I wrote for about 4 years. I decided with a heavy heart to bring it to an end as I just got to the point where sadly I wasn’t happy with the direction it was going and couldn’t think of a way to bring it back. The name was bugging me and I just simply fell out of love with S&S.

But not one to dwell for long on these things. Making the decision to end the blog gave me the ability to take a step back and reevaluate what I really wanted to blog about and ‘My Spanish Vida’ was born.

I’m on a new platform (WordPress, as before I was on Blogger) and blogging feels all fresh and new again. I’m really excited to start getting my teeth back into it all.

A little bit of background about me  After living overseas for a fair few years mostly in the UAE (Abu Dhabi, Dubai & Ras Al-Khaimah) with six months in KL prior to our desert adventure, we finally made the decision to base ourselves at our lovely villa in Southern Spain.

We love the sunny, relaxed lifestyle Spain has to offer. Also not to mention the beautiful food, wine and beaches too.

I love to travel and visiting new places whether that’s hopping on a plane or simply in the car and seeing where the drive takes you. I think I got my travel bug from when I was Cabin Crew and was lucky enough to fly away to long haul destinations for week-long trips. I flew the skies for just short of five years and have so many fun and crazy memories.

One of the best things that came out of my life as Cabin Crew was meeting my Mark. He was an Aircraft Engineer (now a high-flying Manager – no pun intended, lol). We’ve been together for over eight years and pretty much been married for most of that.

Wherever life may take us on our travels I hope for you guys to come along for the ride and share my journey through the blog.

Hasta luego!
