It’s great to have girlfriends around to help cheer you up when you’re trying to get over a bad breakup, but it can also be empowering to take matters into your own hands when you’re trying to move on. This is the idea behind ex-TV news reporter Ellie Scarborough’s new website PinkKisses.com.
A recent report from the New York Daily News spotlights Scarborough and her new site designed to get women on the road to recovery after suffering a breakup. PinkKisses.com offers a number of services women can utilize as a sort of pick-me-up, like sending themselves flowers or chocolates, organizing a spa day, having motivational text messages sent to their phone, and much more.
One of the site’s more unique and popular services they offer is called “Kiss Him Goodbye” where a user can upload a photograph of their old boyfriend and watch it digitally burn.
Scarborough talks about how she came up with the idea for the site while dealing with a bad breakup of her own. She says, “I’d be fantasizing about my ex sending me a huge bouquet of flowers begging me to come back. Then one day I thought, ?You know what? This isn’t going to happen. I shouldn’t be sitting around here waiting for this guy!’”
She then called a local florist and sent herself a bouquet of flowers with the note, “Girl, don’t even shed a tear over a boy who won’t send you these.”
