For Independence Day, I went to the Brooklyn Museum to view the Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties exhibit. I love history, was obsessed with “The Sixties” series on CNN, and hold a great interest in civil rights in the US so I just HAD to see it. Another good reason to go was the fact that it was only showing for that particular weekend not to mention it was free.

It was a rainy morning that turned into a nice day. I wanted a simple Red-White-and-Blue like look so blue eyes, red lips Eyes: Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara/ELF Palette Lips: MAC Head in the Clouds Blush: MAC Ambering Rose Contour: Cover FX Pressed Powder – N110.

In addition to the Civil Rights exhibit, I got to take a look at an exhibit on Ancient Egypt. I don’t think I’ve been so close to so many thousands of years old dead people, but it was really cool to see how the people lived their everyday lives at the time. It was my first time at the museum and I will definitely try my best to go back on another occasion.

I ended the day going downtown for some Henny Coladas at Dallas BBQs and Fireworks at one of my favorite rooftop bar and lounges in the Sheraton Brooklyn. I saw fireworks as far as in New Jersey. Because of the condos building up downtown, it wasn’t the best view, but I had a great evening. I’ll try my best to make it to Dumbo for the show next time around.

Have you visited the Brooklyn Museum for any of its exhibits?
