Lea Michele rang in her 28th birthday in style, celebrating with her closest friends in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
The Glee actress gave fans a sneak peek into her special day as she posted photos of her glamorous getaway on Twitter and Instagram.
Dressed in a navy, halter-style shift dress, Lea looked radiant as she kept her make-up natural and her brunette locks loose over her shoulders.

The main event seemed to be the beautiful alfresco dinner, where the birthday girl and her small group of her friends dined on fresh, seasonal food.
Roasted garlic crostini with sautéed mushrooms and herbs was one of the options for starters, while Lea gave a nod to her holiday destination by requesting Mexican coke carnitas with habanero papaya salsa for mains.
"A very Happy Birthday.. ❤," the Louder singer captioned a photo of herself blowing out the candles on her devil's food cake with chocolate butter cream frosting.
Lea Michele's boyfriend Matthew Paetz was absent from the celebrations
The celebrations didn't stop there as Lea continued to post photos from her relaxing holiday, days after her birthday.
The small-screen actress, who is gearing up to film the sixth and final season of Glee next year, looked to be having a complete break from her day job as she lounged on a hammock and splashed around the infinity pool with her friends.

One notably absent guest from her birthday festivities was her boyfriend Matthew Paetz, who describes himself as a dating and lifestyle coach.
The pair have been linked since April after they met on the music set for Lea's album, and were confirmed as an item when they were pictured enjoying hiking dates in Los Angeles over the summer.
The young lovebirds also ventured to Capri, Italy in July where they spent their first romantic holiday abroad together.
