Rihanna is celebrating her 26th birthday in style this week, by playing in the snow in Aspen with her closest friends.

The pop superstar officially turns 26 today, but she has already been partying for the last few days in her winter wonderland-style cabin in snowy Colorado, US.

Earlier this week, RiRi revealed to fans that she was beginning the birthday celebrations by posting a photo of her beautiful surroundings on Instagram and writing: "Touchdown! 26 you better bring it bi*ch!!!! 48 hrs left on my quarter century! Here's to not remembering any of them!"

She then proceeded to upload snaps of a built-in bowling alley in the cabin, as well as a plate full of polar bear shots and a chocolate cake.

Using her time away in Aspen as an excuse for another impromptu photo shoot, RiRi also posed for a cheeky picture in front of a fireplace.

With her back facing the camera, the songstress can be seen wearing some thigh-high socks, a long-sleeved top and a pair of grey knickers, while her hair is styled into a sleek bob cut.

She added the simple caption: "#cabinlife." And the photo shoot didn't end there!

Making the most of all the snow Aspen has to offer, Rihanna posed for even more pictures while outside exploring and playing on a rubber ring.

She wrapped up in a thick purple coat and donned a matching hat to protect her ears from the cold.

The 'Pour It Up' hit-maker even appeared to be sporting a bright purple lipstick, which was the same colour as her outfit.

Who says you can't be stylish in freezing cold temperatures?!

If this is just the start of RiRi's celebrations, we can only imagine what else is to come!

Her trip to Colorado is a stark contrast to how she spent her 25th birthday last year.

The previous February (or should we say FebruaRIH?!), Rihanna headed to Hawaii to lounge around in the sun with her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

Former flames RiRi and Chris piled on the PDA and took a number of photos together, while the Bajan chart-topped soaked up the good weather in her skimpiest bikini.

We're guessing she felt like a complete change this time around!
