Bluestar Boutique is a new independent online fashion destination run by myself. I am a busy Mum of three and always on the look out for clothes that fit in with my hectic lifestyle, as well as not being left behind in the style stakes. As we all know having children brings it’s own challenges and sometime Mummies, clothes, fashion and style get left behind.

Our hand selected clothes focus on easy wearing, comfort and effortless fashion. Quirky slogan T-shirts, stylish hoodies and bold prints. I try everything before it goes on line so I can relay to you the fit and the feel and how I would wear it.

Our Bluestar Original Cross Neck Hoodies are our bestseller to date. They are soft, long enough in the body to cover the Mum Tum and the cross neck adds a touch of style. Whether it’s the school run, dog walks or simply lounging at home, they are so useful. They are currently available in Charcoal, Nude and Baby Pink and just £38.99.

Have fun (re-)discovering the North East, spotting things you’ve never noticed before, with quirky treasure hunt style heritage walks around Newcastle and Durham – a safe, fun and affordable way to get some fresh air.

‘Curious About’ provide trails around the most spectacular towns and cities in Britain. The self-guided walks take you on a tour of the most unusual, quirky and intriguing places, uncovering sights that you may well have never noticed yourself. The walks are provided in a treasure hunt style format; you follow the clues to find the answers in the booklet.

Explore Newcastle – Thomas Trotter of Newcastle cured Nelson’s other eye. Newcastle is the 2nd driest city in the country. Newcastle hosted the first dog show in the world and the first beauty contest in Britain. Impressed?

Explore Durham – Durham is one of the most dramatic cultural and historic destinations in the UK. This old English university city has a wonderful timeless quality about it, ripe for exploration and yet plenty of time and opportunity to relax.

Both cities have two unique walks which can be enjoyed separately, or joined together to form one longer walk, depending upon available time and energy! They will expand your knowledge, entertain and challenge you, and help you to stay mentally and physically fit! Walks typically take 1 to 2 hours each.
