Bey released a shot of herself and Blue Ivy hitting a Bahamas beach this week onto her Tumblr page.
Before she gets back to business, Beyoncé enjoyed some fun in the sun with her family during their winter break in the Bahamas.

Bey shared the candid pic on her Tumblr page. Although not pictured, Jay-Z was also there, snapping a photo of his daughter playing UNO in their plush pad. "Last day of vacation, playing UNO," he wrote on his blog Life+Times. (Rap-Up)

Knowles-Carter will stay busy at the start of 2013 with plans to perform at Super Bowl XLVII in early February.
At some point after her Super Bowl XLVII halftime performance on February 3rd (of which Pepsi is a sponsor), the singer will appear in a new TV ad for the soft drink, which will also feature her face on a limited-edition run of soda cans. The deal will also involve sponsorship of her tour next year (Beyoncé is expected to release a new album at some point in 2013), along with a multi-million dollar fund for Beyoncé's creative projects, even if they have no obvious connection to Pepsi. Lee Anne Callahan-Longo, general manager of Beyoncé's Parkwood Entertainment, said those collaborative projects could include live events, videos or "a cool photo shoot," but are still at the early stages of development.
