My Birthday at Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur :)

carven peplum dress

Hi Everyone,

Sanjeev and I have come to Umaid Bhawan Palace , Jodhpur. This trip is my birthday gift from Sanjeev. Yay! Thanks to all of you who wished me on IMBB, here, and who took out time to call me or message me. πŸ™‚

Every birthday I sort of assess about how my life has been in these past years. This birthday I only feel more grateful than ever. I have not only done okay with my life, career-wise, but also come out fortunate for being surrounded by people who love me unconditionally. During this journey, some fabulous people got added to my life and some once-loved left me sore. But as they say, β€œpeople come at the right time and leave at the right time.” I move on with no regrets and lots of gratitude for all that I have.

Sharing my birthday outfit and some pics of Umaid Bhawan Palace with you. I don’t think one can capture the beauty and grandeur of the palace through pictures. You have to experience it to belive it. πŸ™‚ The place is beyond words can explain, and pictures can capture. Since morning I have been hearing the chirping of birds, the cuckoo twoots and the kuhoos of peacocks here. I don’t even remember when was the last time I heard birds chirping or felt such fresh wind blowing through my hair. It has been raining here since afternoon. The place only gets better as you explore it more and more. πŸ™‚

We’d be here for a few days. Would try to share as many pics I can from my trip. πŸ™‚

    Happy Birthday, Rati : D : D !
    You’ve achieved so much at such a young age, which certainly makes you inspiring, but the fact that you remain so grounded is what really truly makes you special : )) Stay as you are and I hope this year brings you much joy and all your wishes come true! That said, you look amazing in blue (eeks, pardon the lame birthday-rhyme)!

  7. Nandini says:

    The place looks just like you described it today, and you look gorgeous in that Carven one! :* Must have been an awesome birthday!!! And I told you, Rajasthani food is yummm πŸ˜€ I have a similar dress without the peplum detailing – it also has that slight denim look. Enjoy to the max! And don’t forget to send me the pics we took when you’re back :*

    • Rati says:

      thanks nandini. πŸ™‚ you know i left that card at home that had our pics. πŸ™ i’d send you when i am back. πŸ™‚ would love to see your dress.

      it was a pretty great birthday. cay a gorgeous dark choc cake to finish off the day. πŸ˜€

      thank you again. :-*

      • Nandini says:

        No issues, you’re on vacation!! Send them whenever you’re back πŸ™‚ I will try and do an outfit post of that dress soon πŸ™‚ Btw I know we msged anyway that day but still πŸ˜› it was really nice meeting you that day, it didn’t feel like I’ve not met you before at all! You’re rather sweet and fun to be around, and I hope you stay that way always!
        Nothing like chocolate, it has no occasion πŸ˜› Also I wonder if Sanjeev’s taken a pic of the bright blue houses there!
        Make the most of your vacay!! I went to GK M Block 1 market and visited Dunkin Donuts with a close friend, and went to my college, been a great past couple of days here! I feel sad to go back so soon this coming Sunday.

    • Rati says:

      Thank you neha. πŸ™‚ I am . *touchwood* πŸ˜€ I had a touch time finding one peplum dress. this one i fell for instantly. πŸ˜€

  28. sandhya says:

    Rati di the best gift for a real princess! And thank you so much for sharing these many pics! I am not sure we will be able to afford such places for now but glad to see them through your eyes and lenses πŸ™‚ You know thats the best thing about yourself. Both at IMBB and here nothing seems to be out of league for me! You guys make everything possible and reachable! What can i say ‘ Thanks for being born as you are’ ! Did that sound silly ? πŸ™‚

    • Rati says:

      OMG sandhya. I am sure you would be able to visit such places . Never stop dreaming because dreams do come true. and I am really fortunate enough to be able to travel to these places and have a partner who is super enthu about travelling. πŸ˜€

      thanks a ton, sandhya. I am glad you are enjoying the pics. πŸ™‚

  29. hana says:

    rati totally droolin ova ur dress…u look happy relaxed n fresh……absolutely lovely bdy gift by sanjeevji….thumbs up

  30. Rati, you look so beautiful. That dress is to die for! Belated happy birthday dear πŸ™‚

  31. Arja says:

    Oh , pretty pretty you! It`s like a royal suite. So immaculately furnished. The table and sofa had mirrors on it ! how close to the jodhpur roots the design is ^_^ and did you know ? That prison scene in The Dark Knight Rises was shot in jodhpur ? Legendary , i say. ^_^ I reallyou hope you had the best birthday ever , though you dont even look a day older – timelessly classy that you are.

    • Rati says:

      oh no. I didnt know that. That prison looked so grand I must say. πŸ˜› Awww! I had a fabulous birthday. Snajeev made me fall in love with him again. hihih thanks πŸ™‚

  32. Arja says:

    And I loved the semi-peplum design of the dress , purple speaks of royalty too , I say. The pairing with the golden heels and the sea-shell like clutch which can also serve the purpose of a chinese fan (talk about duality of purpose πŸ˜› ) is nonetheless creative. and classy. (but that goes without saying. )

  33. Priya says:

    Hi Rati,

    In a very short time, I have become your big fan. You are one classy lady..!!
    I need a small favour from you.
    You & Sanjeev have made a wonderful post in terms of planning a trip for Jordan & Europe.

    Can you give me a similar guidance for Jodhpur (Umaid Bhavan Palace) in terms of the budget it costed you & how dide you went about your itinerary.
    Its my hubby dearest Bday
    and I plan to give him a suprise !!!..
