Following Christmas at home with her family, Lydia jetted off to Thailand with her sister Georgia Bright to see in 2015.
And, after a memorable night partying on New Year's Eve, Lydia took to Instagram to reflect back on the year she has just had.
In a photo she shared to Instagram, the reality star proved exactly why she was crowned Reveal's Best Bikini Body of 2014, showing off her fabulous figure in a printed two-piece.
With her hands in the air, a fresh-faced Lydia looked more than happy to be kicking off her new year on the beach front in Koh Samui.
Alongisde her photo, she wrote: "So blessed to be spending the first day of 2015 in my favourite part of the world. 2014 was a roller coaster but an amazing year.
"I am the luckiest girl in the world because of the opportunities I have been given in life, the best friends that I have made but most importantly the family I was born to.
"Wishing you all a #HappyNewYear keep smiling, follow your dreams and make lots of memories."
Today, Lydia and her sister swapped the sun, sea and sand for a day of exploring.
Heading into the jungle, the Bright sisters indulged in a little Thai culture. From visiting waterfalls, to trekking through the trees and hanging out with the island's elephant residents, it looks like the girls definitely have had a day to remember.
They even had a go at finding their fortune!
Sharing a snap from her visit to a Thai temple, Lydia showed off her already impressive tan as she sought out her future.
Let's hope it's all good things in store!
Meanwhile, as Lydia was leaving Essex her on/off boyfriend James 'Arg' Argent was on his way back.
Taking to Twitter, Arg told his followers he was back in his hometown after spending Christmas in rehab.
He tweeted: "It's good to finally be back in Essex. Home is where the heart is. New year coming up and a new start."
The 27-year-old checked himself into a rehab centre in a bid to curb his partying ways after being suspended from TOWIE.
Happy to have him home again, Arg's friends were quick to send their well wishes, including Lydia's mum Debbie Bright, Mark Wright's dad and Lucy Mecklenburgh.
Ahead of his return, Jessica Wright tweeted her pal: "Love you Merry Christmas can't wait to see you xxxxxxxxxxx"
