Hi all! 👋🏻 We have admittedly been a lot quieter so far in 2020. We have been busy working away on @travelmustard but we also didn't feel it was appropriate to post pretty holiday snaps while our home was burning. This bushfire season for Australia has been terrifying to say the least. We have personally been lucky to only receive the hazardous smoke that has blanketed cities for days and weeks on end. We couldn't imagine what our fellow Aussies are going through who are fighting in the thick of it all - our incredible volunteer firefighters (locally and internationally- 🙏🏼thank you NZ, US and Canada teams!!), and the amazing support organisations who are working round the clock to help support displaced people and animals. We won't repeat it as you have probably all seen the stats on the lives lost and amount of land and bush that has burnt along with homes that need complete rebuilding. It's a sobering situation that requires a global movement to really shift behaviours at industry level to truly make an impact on our beautiful Mother Earth. 🌏
👉🏼 So what can we do as regular people who want to help? You can still make monetary💰 donations to organisations like @redcrossau and @nswrfs, @wireswildliferescue, @wildlifevictoria to name a few and you have probably heard of wonderful campaigns like @buyfromthebush, @spendwiththem, @emptyesky to help business owners get back on their feet. We have had rain and the fires are still burning, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't visit us in @australia because we are still epic!! Tourism will play a big part in supporting our fellow Aussies in the long run. So don't be shy and start planning your next trip here, you won't regret it! More to come on this 🔎

It’s been a great week, but we’re as happy to see the weekend as this chilled out elephant seal was to see our Argentina Specialist, Lou, on her travels there at the end of last year.
Peninsula Valdes in Argentine Patagonia is the perfect place to see these gorgeous animals in the wild. Elephant seals have been aggressively hunted for their oil in the past, almost to the brink of extinction, but thankfully the numbers of these earless seals are on the increase! Why not chat to us about a tailor-made trip to #Argentina to see these belly-flopping beauties for yourselves?...

I AM SO EXCITED FOR CHRISTMAS! Here is a quick highlight video from last year (tons of you have been asking to see last year’s Christmas video). The theme last year was Who-Ville. Full video in the link tree in my bio.
This year‘s theme is TOTALLY NEW, and I am bursting-at-the-seems excited to put it up and show you!
1. Do you want to see progress pictures and videos of me putting it up, or just the final product?
2. If you DO want to see the progress, what in particular do you want to see?
I love you all so much! I am so incredibly grateful for each one of you🥰
Team Real or Team Faux? We are both in the Ballard household. And when I saw this real 6 foot wide one from @designsbykaran I just drooled! Mike and I both grew up with real ones and they smell so good! .
And can we also talk about this amazing lady? Karan has been a friend of mine up in here since I was a newby. It never mattered to her about that, she was a support and a mentor constantly and I consider a dear friend. Her home inspires me and her friendship is a gift to me. Karan is darling and I know you will all adore her. Make sure to check out her feed today. Happy Saturday my friends! .
