Pamela Anderson is celebrating another trip around the sun.

In honor of her 57th birthday on Monday, July 1, the actress, model and author shared a series of photos of herself enjoying time gardening and baking.

Also among the sunny slideshow is a photo that read, seemingly in Anderson's handwriting, "I'm going to make life beautiful no matter what it takes."

"Happier than ever," she wrote in the caption. "Thank you for all the love and birthday wishes. Love, P."

Anderson next appears in the film The Last Showgirl, and stars opposite Liam Neeson in the new The Naked Gun remake.

Anderson's birthday comes not long after another big milestone: the one-year anniversary of her skincare brand, Sonsie.

On June 12, the Baywatch alum got up close and personal in a bare-faced Instagram Reel celebrating the anniversary, in which she applied her go-to skin products that left her complexion bright and glowing.

"@sonsieskin turns 1 year old today!" Anderson wrote in the caption.

She added, "Our little family is getting bigger and bigger and I’m so grateful for all of you who have joined us ... Together, we are spreading a message of self-care and self-love around the world."

Back in December 2023, Anderson said in her weekly journal that she has gone "back to basics" when it comes to her beauty regimen.

She explained that she has no interest in "hovering over the sink with multiple steps" and has "weeded out" certain products, including anything "too complicated."

Of the items she still uses, she has a strategy: "I plant things where I'll see them and [apply them] … A rose hydration spray in the fridge that I use every time I open it … A lip balm in my bag that I apply all day long especially in the winter … "

Anderson also said she has "homemade" formulas, such as a rose-hip facial oil that “sits on my vanity for before make up or just 'as my makeup' these days."
