Lei ChicThere are some things you really miss about your school days.

Prom – Sure there were unfortunate big hair pictures. But it came with a reason to shop for semi-formals.
Lunch – You sat and chatted with friends (albeit over those mysterious chicken patties) instead of eating hunched over your desk.
Christmas Break. Spring Break. Summer Vacation.

You need a break from your all-too grown-up responsibilities. Now there’s a legitimate reason to play a little hooky with workshops by Recess for Women.

Founder Jill Izuno used to plan corporate brownbags. Now she’s focused on creating fun escapes for all women – complete with interesting classes, tasty cocktails, delightful nibbles.

No more pencils. But you’ll be drawn into a 60-minute talk story session on dating with Hawaii News Now Sunrise's  Steve Uyehara and Byron Furukawa. They’ll hit everything from "First date T.M.I.'s” to “Do guys really dig 5-inch stilettos?” while you nibble on tenderloin and blue cheese crostinis and sip a low-cal Spa-tini from Morton’s Steakhouse.

No more books. Still, you’ll want to take notes during a half-day seminar on 10-minute fixes from Face Art Beauty experts with a combined 63 years experience making Hawaii beautiful. Lei ChicLearn how to transform one hairdo from workout to work to wedding or how to tackle your brows and foolproof ways to apply those false lashes. Also on the menu are scones, mini bagels, and fruit at the continental breakfast and a light lunch topped off with Hokulani cupcakes and cocktails.

Hungering for more? Then sign up for a year’s membership for continuous discounts on other sessions such as self-protection, wedding planning, and simple interior design.

So now you have an easy way to add some class to your life’s lessons.

No homework necessary.
