Beach bum, redefined! Lea Michele wore quite the revealing bikini during a recent trip to Mexico for the holidays. The 27-year-old "Glee" actress posed playfully for the camera in a Twitter photo posted on Friday.

"What an amazing week in Mexico...New day. New year. #Bringit2014," Michele wrote. Alongside the caption, the "Battlefield" singer posted a picture of herself wearing a two-piece while standing at the ledge of a pool. The stunning brunette showed off her backside as she placed one hand on a palm tree while looking out at the beautiful scenery.

Michele is no doubt grateful that 2013 is over and done with. On July 13, her boyfriend and Glee costar Cory Monteith died at the age of 31 after overdosing on heroin and alcohol.

"It's certainly been a pretty rough year," Michele admitted during an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Dec. 12. "But I've been surrounded by such great people, such great family." She added: "I just thought he was the greatest man."

Although it's been hard, Michele has turned to music in the new year. The "Cannonball" singer is set to release her debut album Louder on March 4. The 11-track list is already available to pre-order.
