HoraConfessions was created in Tokyo by models Heather Burton and Laura Hayden in 2009. They used the blog as a tool to show friends & family what they were up to whilst enjoying their 3-month modelling experience in Japan.
Once they went back to their respective countries (Heather went back to Los Angeles, US; & Laura went back to Barcelona, Spain), Laura decided to keep posting on the blog, & directed it more towards fashion.
The blog has been evolving constantly throughout the years (you can still visit all of the previous entries in the archive). In June 2012, a newer, updated version of HoraConfessions has been created: a fashion, beauty & lifestyle web-blog with multi contributors in English & Spanish.
Laura is joined on HoraConfessions by new monthly contributors Ana Larruy, Chloe Kirkby, Alejandra Català (Catssac), Chloé Sepulchre (Chloé Sucreé), & with the collaboration of Gabriel Llano. Another big collaboration on Hora is Laura’s collaboration (since 2011) with Harper’s Bazaar Spain.
