The Oodie

I knew I was going to fall in love with The Oodie the moment I saw the ad for the wearable blanket and I was not wrong! 😍😍😍

What is it?

The Oodie, with interior made from warm sherpa fleece and exterior soft flannel fleece, is the cosiest piece of clothing and the only thing helping this insomniac sleep through the cold, winter nights. It comes as a one-size fits all, which I find is very roomy. The cuffs wrap onto my wrist, locking the heat in, yet the arms are also big enough that I can keep my hands in the Oodie for extra warmth. If you’re worried about cold leggies, The Oodie also sell their own trackies!

You have the option of buying The Oodie in your favourite colour or in a cool design. For example, the selection below shows some of their available options. I own both the Cat Oodie 🐱 and the Navy Oodie and couldn’t be happier with either.

Your Oodie arrives to your house delicately wrapped in a ribbon like the gift to your life it is. It feels as though Christmas has come early as you unveil it. 🎁

If you already toddle around the house cocooned in a blanket then the Oodie is perfect for you. Being a wearable blanket, you don’t have to hold it up yourself. This frees up your movement so you can get things done while staying warm. The bonus? It has pockets!

I completely love my Oodie (and so does our puppy Maddie!) 🐶

Rating

5/5 stars.

I could not recommend The Oodie more. I initially bought my Oodie for our trip to Melbourne because I knew how cold it would get as we went south – and I have loved every moment of owning it! I even had to buy a second one so Luke would stop stealing mine!!

Accommodation near Walhalla

The closest accommodation to Walhalla we found at a decent price was Sue’s Bella Cottage in Darnum. A mere half an hour away, the road into Walhalla from Darnum is a beautiful, winding, rainforest drive.

Bella Cottage is situated on Sue’s farm and overlooks a valley. Quaint and rustic, the cottage itself, a standalone structure, looks as though it has been reconstructed from an old barn. It is not only a magnificent building, but it has a magnificent view. We missed sunset the night prior, but oh, boy was sunrise truly stunning.

We were most impressed by how much food Sue had thoughtfully left us in the fridge and fruit-bowl, as well as the array of face masks, soaps, and other products in the bathroom. We felt we definitely had received some bang for our buck, and we managed to use some of the food in the fridge for dinner and breakfast, with plenty left over.

As for the farm life, we didn’t get to participate in anything spectacular such as milking cows or collecting chicken eggs, but we did get to experience a night on a farm. With the cow paddock and dog barn right next to our cottage, we had a great time patting the animals (unbeknownst to Sue and family). Luke particularly loved Milly the cow, who would come up to him whenever he were nearby. We even experienced the wake up call of a rooster at sunrise!

The interior of the cottage is homely, with a cosy fireplace as the centrepiece in the main room. The bed was made neatly and colour-coordinated well with the carpet rugs. We also loved some of the minor decorations, such as farm-themed artworks (one of which was an aerial view of the farm itself), Australian books, and more!

In her description, Sue states that there is a river that runs behind the cottage which is nice to sit by and fish from. We didn’t take advantage of this while we were there but it would be a nice addition worth seeing if you stay there.

Sue herself was very friendly and incredibly understanding when I told her I thought I’d damaged something (whoops!). I felt incredibly at ease and safe staying in Sue’s cottage and I would definitely come back here!!
