Beyonce may have been carefully keeping baby Blue Ivy's press coverage under wraps, but even she couldn't resist revealing a sneak peek at what the mother-daughter duo got up to on holiday in these idyllic shots.

EYONCE REVEALS ANOTHER NEW SHORT HAIRSTYLE

The pictures were uploaded to our favourite site - Beyonce's Tumblr account, naturally - and depict some stunning tropical settings from their trips around the world. 

Beyonce with Blue Ivy Carter

Between shots of Queen Bey writing Blue's name in the sand and showing off the scenery, one of the cutest pics definitely has to be a casual looking Beyonce in a sports jersey from home town Texas guiding tiny Blue through a garden - and although the little Knowles-Carter member's face has been kept out of the pic, we're loving her adorable flower hair accessory.

SEE BEYONCE AND JAY Z'S FAMILY ALBUM

While we can only guess at where the star family are, it seems that the A-list family are enjoying taking a break from their busy schedule. As Beyonce's Mrs Carter World Show takes a short hiatus before a Philadelphia show at the end of August, husband Jay Z has also wrapped up his Legends of the Summer tour with Justin Timberlake, allowing for some quality family time away from the spotlight.

Beyonce also added a photo from her recent backstage party with Jay Z at Los Angeles - taking the chance to show off her cool head-to-toe Givenchy ensemble one last time. Keep the pics coming, Bey. SM
