She's been cutting a slimmer figure since losing weight after recovering from throat surgery last year.
And as she ran errands in West London, the singer was showing off the effects of her weight loss in pair of leggings and jumper.
Accompanied by boyfriend Simon Konecki, a male friend and her beloved dachshund dog Louie, the 23-year-old was spotted about and about in Notting Hill.
