Connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest and join the party! We have a winner! For this week’s #TransformationTuesday Red Door giveaway, we’ve been seeing red in the best possible way thanks to this amazing collection of Red Door Spa products. Like so many of you, we have a special place in our hearts for this classic brand, which was founded by the legendary Elizabeth Arden. A true beauty connoisseur and savvy businesswoman, Elizabeth Arden opened her first spa in 1910. Guests who stepped through that iconic red door must have felt like they were stepping into the future of beauty. And they were! At that point in time, makeup was still thought of as “bad girls only,” associated with lower-class women and ladies of the night. But Elizabeth Arden changed all of that almost single-handedly. Through her Red Door spas and clever marketing campaigns, she showed the world how cosmetics, perfumes, and beauty treatments can help everyday women look and feel their best. Soon enough, that red door became a symbol of a new era in cosmetics and the spa lifestyle. Generations later, women are still flocking to Red Door Spas across the United States! Here at Spa Week, we’re obviously super inspired by Elizabeth Arden and everything Red Door Spa stands for. So for this Red Door giveaway, we asked you to tell us about a woman who inspires you. Which brings us to our winner! Congratulations to Michelle K., who used our Red Door giveaway to give a shout-out to a special friend: “Wanda G. M. is the person that inspires me to be a better “me” with ALL that she does each day for the precious animals they take in & care for. She & her loving husband Doug M. run a no kill shelter called The Second Chance Shelter in Boaz Al. They sacrifice a lot of themselves for these babies and make this world a MUCH better place to live!!! I wish we had more people that had HUGE compassionate hearts like them!!! She & Doug are my TRUE heroes and I thank God for them both!! I pray that God will bless them for making a HUGE difference in this world starting years ago of taking in a liter of puppies into hundreds & hundreds more! I thank you both with ALL my heart!!! GOD BLESS YOU WANDA & DOUG!!!” We hope you enjoy your Red Door Spa products, Michelle, and give our warmest regards to Wanda!

She juggles everything with such grace, stays motivated & positive. She inspires me to keep motivated to achieve whatever dreams I can dream! Tiffany W.: My birth daughter, Brooke J. P.

She put herself through college while working three jobs. Now she is finishing up with her Masters. I’m so proud of her determination and accountability. She’s just as beautiful inside as she is outside. I just her giving heart. Friends and Neighbors @chupidee: I am inspired by a lovely lady named Alicia, who is a ray of sunshine in the life of everyone she encounters. She is caring and thoughtful, despite her personal trials and tribulations. She is a devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt… a loyal and industrious employee… and dependable volunteer who gives from her heart and soul. I wish we could all be a little more like Alicia. Billi I.: As a nurse, I’m inspired by great women all the time. There’s one in particular, however, who continues to inspire me daily. Not only does she teach me new things regularly, she’s also proven to be a great friend.
