I had the pleasure to don my signature sequins and lashings of glittery Swarovski jewellery for a special feature in Stylist Magazine this month. You can read the interview below and look at my layers of bling online here, or see it in the mag on at the end of the month. I’m a model!

Jess Indeedy X Swarovski in Stylist Magazine: INTERVIEW
“A force of positivity, a fun enthusiast, and a professional Golden Girl. Get ready, Jess Indeedy is going to bring it.
When it comes to style all of us want a full house of strong looks. The new Swarovski Remix Collection gives women a chance to access different parts of their personality with ease. You might catch her wearing a fuchsia blazer by day but Jessica’s not afraid to glam it up even more with the help of a pineapple or two when she’s hosting her much-loved Indeedy Musical Bingo nights.
How long have you been doing bingo?
Since 2007. Before that I handled advertising for a couple of magazines. My mum passed away and I needed to do something more meaningful with my life. Losing her was a wake-up call that none of us know how much time we have left. I studied music in school, so I knew whatever I did had to be music related. I just love it and would never get bored if music was involved.
Tell us about Indeedy Musical Bingo
It’s like regular bingo but instead of numbers, our DJ play music and people have to run up to the front to get a prize when they get a row of songs. I’m the presenter and we have a crew of granny dancers in shiny metallic tracksuits. There’s so much negativity in the world at the moment so we create a vortex of positivity for people to feel good.
So, you play a game of bingo, and then you sing a song?
The DJ will play the songs, and on everyone’s card is the songs and the name of the artists, like I Feel for You by Chaka Khan for example, and when you hear that come on, you mark your card. Like regular bingo, if you get a line, you run up and get the prize. I’m the presenter so I give out the prize. That’s the gist of it!
How does your look differ from day to night?
In the day, I’m either working from my office with my adorable dog, Marlowe, or going to meet clients. I have a favourite outfit at the moment – I call it ‘Golden Girls Chic’; pink trousers, a white shirt and my grandmother’s fuchsia blazer. If I’ve got a gig on, I dress really over the top – I’ll be wearing a green glittery playsuit with a banana belt and pineapple headdress. I never compromise my creativity – it’s my superpower!
So are you a bit of a chameleon?
Absolutely. I get to shift between two looks and characters; Connecticut soccer mum and wacky glittery superhero. It’s quite a contrast. My style motto is ‘express yourself’. You have every right to change your style day to day.
How do you accessorise with a pineapple headdress?
Ha! I wear delicate jewellery in the day, but then I layer it up in the evening with bigger, more obvious accessories.
Have you got a style motto?
Express yourself, whatever that may be at the time. You have every right to change your mind about that day to day. “
