Bikini Beauty Maria Menounos' Christmas Pool Party

She wasn't able to enjoy a traditional white Christmas, but Maria Menounos certainly made the most with what the weather had to offer.

The 33-year-old beauty tossed on a black bikini as she joined friends and family in hopping in the backyard pool while soaking up the west coast sunshine.

Posting a picture from the festivities, Miss Menounos happily wrote, "Its a california xmas here...parents and friends swimming!!"

Looking fabulous in the waterbound shot, Maria recently spoke about how she places a great deal of emphasis on maintaining her skin.

Revealing her regular beauty process, Menounos dished, "My evening ritual consists of using Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelette and then using my cleanser and I have little white towels folded up in my bathroom like a hotel and I use each one only once before I throw it in the laundry bin."
