It's been a huge year for Dua Lipa.

She debuted new music, announced that she's going to be in a new movie come February, and oh, yeah, she released that little song Dance the Night from that little, one-of-the-highest-grossing-movies-of-all-time Barbie. It hit number one on the Billboard charts and earned a spot on the 2024 Oscars short list for Original Song.

So, she is certainly due for a bit of rest and relaxation. And from the looks of her latest Instagram posts, she's getting it.

The pop star is on a trip to India with her family and has been graciously sharing dispatches with us along the way. In a new batch, posted Sunday, she looks fresh-faced while sipping from a mug in a gorgeous yellow top. There is also a video from a dance performance, one seriously cute photo of her and an elephant, a shot of her horseback riding and more.

"I feel so beyond lucky to end my year here in India," she captioned the post. "Thank you to all the wonderful people here who have shown us so much love, kindness, hospitality and generosity. This experience has been deeply meaningful. I feel lucky to be in and within the magic with my family where we have had the time to explore, regroup, recharge and restart. Ready for the year ahead. What a joy!!!"

The singer has been bopping around Houdini style this holiday season. Last month she shared looks from New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, sporting her new dark cherry red hair and plenty of high fashion moments.

We're loving (and are jealous of!) this toned down end of year celebration.
