Blogger Miss W embraces Christmas in Ibiza
Christmas is a time where it’s easy to believe in magic. There are pretty lights twinkling everywhere, parties aplenty, champagne glasses tinkling, new Star Wars movies to watch… and of course, there’s the promise of Santa Claus.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in Ibiza… and is there any better excuse than that to go shopping?

Two front teeth? Got ‘em. A partridge in a pear tree? Not enough space in my apartment. Gold, frankincense and myrrh? Difficult to gift-wrap. Mistletoe and wine? Perhaps. A White Christmas? Well, now that you mention it… Read more
