Before hooking up with her Prince Charming, bride-to-be Meghan Markle soaked up the rays in her sunny hometown of California.
And Daily Star Online have taken a trip down memory lane, diving into her Instagram account to resurrect her 25°C snaps to brighten up your frosty mornings.
Ms Markle logged out of all social media back in April, including her online blog, as her romance with Prince Henry of Wales intensified.
However, her profile still remains public boasting 3million followers on Insta and 471,000 on Twitter.
Now living the fairytale dream, once upon a time the former Suits actress was just another Joe Bloggs, sharing intimate selfies that could rival the Love Island crew.
In one cute snap, dated May 2016, the brunette beauty can be seen posing in a watermelon crochet bikini, complete with sun hat. A far cry from her Sentaler camel-coloured coat (£960), suede Chloe Pixie bag (£1150) and Stuart Weitzman boots (£595) for her church appearance on December 25.
In another pic, Meghan can be seen channelling her inner mermaid as she swims underwater and is captured through the transparent pool wall.
The 36-year-old was also a fan of sharing inspiring quotes, including one which stated "be the change you wish to see in the world" and another saying "throw kindness around like confetti".
Meanwhile, despite bringing some Markle Sparkle to the turkey dinner with Queenie and co. over the holidays, Meghan's sister ain't so happy.
She added: "Meg's family (our family) is complete with sister, brother, aunts, uncles, cousins, and the glue of our family, our amazing completely self-sacrificing father. She always had this family... Marrying merely extends it.
"She has a large family. She always did. Our dad is amazing and completely self sacrificing. We made it so that she had two houses. How fun it was."
Take about a royal comeback.
This is not the first time Samantha has spoken out publicly.
Back in October, the Florida-based former model gave an interview to Good Morning Britain, in which she championed Meghan in what many called 'damage control' after it was reported she would be releasing a book called The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister.
It is yet to be seen if Samantha will make the guestlist of the highly-anticipated royal wedding, due to take place on May 19, 2018.
It has, however, been confirmed that Meghan's dad Thomas Markle will walk her down the aisle.
