Hummingbird Heartbeat

So it's been a busy week full of filming, sewing, some more filming and a day of catching up with old friends. On wednesday I met up with the lovely Stefanie from Fashion One who I made friends with from when we made the final together. We've stayed in touch ever since and decided on a catch up in true style at the Hummingbird Bakery in London. 
(any excuse really to chow down on some tasty cupcakes!)
 Naturally we had to have the in house speciality which is their Red Velvet Cupcakes. Teamed with a classic coke (in the bottle- which always tastes better!) to wash it all down with...didn't disappoint. 

It was so lovely to catch up and shortly afterwards I had to dash across to the other side of London to go on air and present on the shopping channel with the sewing machine. 
I have decided to make more of an effort to wear some of my more showy dresses more often, as some only come out for special occasions! Let's be honest lots of us girls have this problem! 
This dress is one of those, that if I'm being honest 
I've only ever worn maybe 4 times since I've bought it.  
I love wearing it but am always reluctant to as it's very weather dependent and very ra! if you get what I mean.
why yes I did make that dress! 
So I thought why not on Wednesday? 
I decided to tone it down and team it up with a classic black shirt tied across on top and finish it off with my Nine West heels.
In retrospect my hair couldn't of been tidier from that back! ha ha
You'll be pleased to know that more stitch n bitch projects are to follow! 
I found the most a-m-a-z-i-n-g fabric at the weekend!
The selection on this stall was brilliant and so so so cheap!
 In the end I chose the liquorice allsorts and the swimming ladies which I fell in love with the moment I saw it. Perfect for summertime!
I simply cannot wait to get started on my next project!
Big thanks to Phil Konecny for taking snaps during filming! x
