It's been a big year for Beyonce, who brought the house down during the Super Bowl half time show in February before embarking on her epic Mrs. Carter World Tour in April. And the pop diva has been documenting her globetrotting adventures every bootylicious step of the way. 

On her official tumblr page, the "Grown Woman" singer posted new photos of her travels, including some smoldering bikini shots, which flaunt the Grammy winner's toned abs. After opting for a pixie cut earlier this year, Queen Bey is back to her signature long, wavy locks, looking laid back and carefree in her latest beachside pics. 

She also posted an adorable photo of daughter Blue Ivy, 22 months, wearing a black leather jacket with gold studs that read "Miss Blue Carter." 

Four has always been a lucky number for Beyonce -- her birthday is Sept. 4 and husband Jay Z's birthday is Dec. 4 and she named her most recent album 4 -- so on Jay's 44th birthday, the singer posted precious pictures vacationing with her sweetheart near the beach. 

Though her world tour has been extensive, Beyonce seems to have made plenty of time for her family. She finished up the South American portion of the tour in September and moved on to New Zealand and Australia soon after. 

She took off most of November from the road life, and was spotted filming a music video in New York a few weeks ago. The Mrs. Carter World Tour will wrap on Dec. 22 at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
