Well, if her singing career doesn't take off in the states, she could always try her hand at modelling.

The X Factor judge looked effortlessly radiant as she headed to a Beverly Hills salon wearing a nautical-inspired red jumpsuit from Lipsy with white anchor rope detail.

She had only been back in her hometown of London a few weeks following her Christmas holiday with now ex-boyfriend Fazer.

But
it looks like Tulisa is making the most of being in
sunnier climates for the second time in the space of a month after
arriving in California.

Having landed in Tinseltown on Tuesday, the 23-year-old has wasted no time in soaking up the rays in various summery outfits, including a pair of denim shorts yesterday.

It's no surprise to see a smile on Tulisa's face considering she has just signed a three book deal.

The first one will be an autobiography published later this year, with the following two to be novels.

Tulisa said: 'I'm really excited to start work on these books. Having my novels published is a dream come true for me. I'm also looking forward to sharing my life story so far, I've got lots to tell.'

Deputy Publishing Director Sarah Emsley
at Headline added: 'Tulisa is an incredibly talented writer… Tulisa’s
story has incredible breadth and depth for someone so young.'

Earlier this week she was also in high spirits, enjoying a spot of shopping with her
PA as the Camden-native showed off her tanned legs in the cutoffs, ankle
boots and a knitted T-shirt.

However,
the X Factor's judge's cheery outward appearance came just hours after
it was claimed her ex-boyfriend Fazer's demands for marriage and a baby
led to their split after 18-months.

According to sources close to the
couple, Fazer was ready to settle down with the brunette and had given
her a 'marry me or lose me' ultimatum but she wasn't convinced he could
be trusted.

Fazer is then alleged to have
questioned her commitment to their relationship and that is when the argument came to a head.

A friend told Closer magazine that Fazer said: 'I want marriage and a baby and it seems all you want is fame!'

The
insider told the publication: 'He told her if she wasn't prepared to
commit to starting a family, she couldn't tell him who he could or
couldn't speak to.'

Fazer, real name Richard Rawson, is also said to have asked the chart-topper to quit her role on X Factor.

A
source told heat magazine: 'He told her that he thinks she should quit
the X Factor, and that she'd changed. It really cut through Tulisa and
she started to cry.'

Earlier this week, Tulisa confirmed she will be releasing a solo single in the next few months.

With her group N-Dubz on hiatus and her recent split from Fazer, it's the perfect time for Tulisa.

She told London radio station Capital FM: 'I've got my single ready now to release. I'm going to be shooting a video soon.

'Haven't got a set date but I'd say within the next two months definitely.'

And
despite singing urban songs with her N-Dubz band-mates Fazer and
Costadinos 'Dappy' Contostavlos, Tulisa's solo sound will be a little
different.

She explained:
'It's very me but maybe not what people would expect genre-wise. It's
one of those tracks that you don't get bored of.'

Aside
from her solo work, Tulisa is rumoured to be duetting with her 'little
muffins' Little Mix on a track for their debut album.
