She recently admitted she is making the most of the current lull in her career to enjoy a well-earned break from her usually jam-packed schedule.
And taking a rest from the music industry appeared to have done Cheryl Cole the world of good as she touched down at Los Angeles LAX Airport on Saturday evening.
Flashing her famous killer-watt smile as she wandered through the arrivals terminal, the 29-year-old singer flashed her toned and tanned pins in a pair of tiny buttercup yellow shorts.
The Geordie beauty teamed her sexy yellow hotpants with a stylish loose-fitting gunmetal grey blouse, while toting a matching snakeskin-print handbag.
Showing no hint of the fact that she had just stepped off a lengthy transatlantic flight, Cheryl looked positively radiant as she showed off her flawless skin with minimal bronze make-up, and wore her long brunette locks tumbling in dramatic waves around her shoulders.
Ever the A-lister, the Call My Name hitmaker completed her jet-set look with a pair of white aviator shades to shelter her eyes from the glare of the flashbulbs.
Perhaps the reason behind Cheryl’s sunny appearance was the fact that she may have been en route to see her long-distance lover, dancer Tre Holloway, who currently lives in the US.
The star recently admitted that while she is making the most of having a clear schedule for once, she would never abandon music for good.
She said in an interview with Daybreak: ‘It’s exciting that I actually don’t have any plans for once, because I got a little way in with the third album and then decided to put it to one side so I could focus on the Girls Aloud tour and that’s just come to an end, so I actually don’t know.
‘Music is my life, music is my passion, my first love, so that will always be part of what I’m doing. But I actually don’t have any plans right now.
‘I’m turning 30 in June… I’ve had an incredible decade in this industry, with the highs and the lows. 30 is a very empowering age for me, I feel the best I’ve ever felt.’
