NEW | #BeautiesOnFire Collab

I'm introducing something a bit different today; it's been a few weeks in the planning, and today a group of fashion and beauty bloggers, including myself, are launching a new collab series! #BeautiesOnFire will see us putting together a themed post each Thursday, with the first proper themed post being next week. Please vote in the Twitter poll below to help us choose our next theme - and have a look at Elisabeth's post for all the details.
Beauties on Fire Collab
So as a little introduction to me and my blog for anyone who's come over from the collab... [You can meet the other bloggers here!]
Hi! I'm Jess, and I've been blogging for almost five years now (I know! It makes me feel old thinking about it!), since I got bored in the summer holidays at uni between second and third years and thought, "Maybe I'll start a blog!" The Indigo Hours has undergone some changes along the way (not least its name; until January, it was called Just Jess!) and has settled somewhere in the realms of beauty and lifestyle blogging. When I'm not blogging or at work you'll probably find me either sleeping, reading, or at the gym - I enjoy running, swimming, cycling and having a go at pretty much anything else fitness-related.

When it comes to beauty, my must-have product is a good cleanser; taking good care of your skin is so important, and to my mind, it doesn't matter what else you put on it if it isn't properly clean! I'm loving this Una Brennan Cleanser at the moment as it suits my oily skin perfectly. My make-up style falls somewhere between natural and glamourous, I'd say; I tend to dabble with trends but mostly stick to what I know, which generally involves a lot of eye make-up and a more toned-down rest of my face! I'm hoping the #BeautiesOnFire collab will help me push my boundaries a little more and try some new things.

  30. As if you have been blogging for five years, that’s incredible! How did you find the whole process of the name change, were it a bit of a pain? LOVE the eye shadow in the above picture, it’s such a pretty colour!! Talking of pretty, this blog is just too cute!
