Finding and modifying boots for skiny calved girls

I'm tiny. Well in some areas atleast. I have skinny wrists (that's why i basically can't wear my beloved bangles, unless they are sixed xs) and skinny calves. I look well proportioned and everything, but in these areas i do not qualify for standard sizings. I am not anorexic or anything, i am just... like that. Think Eva Longoria - petite. So, I have problems when it comes to buying boots.

Recently i've bought this gorgeous pair of boots, it fits perfectly except for the calf part. Right below then knee, you can see how they are loose. I would see some girls also having the same problem, but what you gonna do about it??
  • If you are brave enough to trust your boots to cobbler/shoemaker, you can do so, depending on what material the shoes are made of (leather, suede etc...)  he can take them in. But I would be very cautious about the qualification of the cobbler dude. There is a high possibility of ruining shoes if done wrong...
  • There are brands/shops that make custom fitted stuff, as well as boots. My favourite - duoboots.com They do loads of different calf sizes, you just measure and they make them to fit you. they are a little more expensive than your average high street boots but they are good quality, and they will actually fit so are likely to last you a good few years.
    • Stretchy Boots Stretch boots allow you ample room and cater to your leg size. If you have huge calves, however, these might be a little uncomfortable for you. Also, if you go with the elastic ones, beware of the cheap feeling ones. The elastic tends to wear out and then you’re back at square one! 
     
    • Lace-Up Boots Lace-up boots are like corsets for your legs. This is my personal favorite solution since it allows you to adjust the boot shaft every inch of the way and still have that sexy appeal.

    • Boots with Buckles Buckle boots are great for adjusting the boot shaft and still adding that little bit of embellishment. They are less combersome than the lace-up alternative and maybe look classier than the stretch boots. 

    • Ugg Boots or EMU Boots You can also go for a boot that is less form fitting like UGG boots and EMU boots. Plus, they have a lot of cushioning inside to help make the boot fit a little better.

       And the idea that has been eating me alive recently - why don't i just buy a pair of legwarmers or thicker overknee stockings?? It would fill up the gaps in
    the boot and look uber trendy!


    Any more suggestions tips or tricks?
    Or maybe opinions? Let's discuss it!

Best beauty remedies form the nature - COFEE GROUNDS

Awhile ago i've read somewhere a big article about how to use leftover coffee grounds to figth cellulite and ever since then it was stuck in my head. You know, how coffe grounds are useful only for fortune tellers and for war with the orange peel skin on tushy. Boy was i wrong! It is amazing how much the mother nature can offer us - beauty product junkies. To get an amazing beauty remedy for anything you can possibly think of, you don't need to do much or pay more than a.. dollar/euro (this is how i imagine a cup of coffee costs.... lol) So i put together a list of ways of how to use almighty coffee grounds and tried them all, so let's see the results!

This is how my obssesion with coffee grounds started. I was visiting my grandmother for a few days and she noticed how i wash my hair almost OR every single day. I had to sit down with her and listen to a looooong moral about how it's unhealthy for the hair and yada yada yada... So -  ok -  i said, - they get oily really …

Off topic - relationships! I am sure i am not the only one!?

I have huge fear - i am affraid to appear too clingy. I am not affraid to show my affection to someone, but i don't ever want to be the one, who takes the first step. The first step not necceserily means going to a guy i like and expressing this to him, but i hate being the one, who texts or e-mails first. God forbid be the one who asks a GUY out. I could know, that this particular guy REALLY likes me, and i won't be turned down, i still hate taking the first step. Do you have the same feeling? Like, i want to talk to someone, but i have this ugly feeling in my stomach, that maybe he is busy and i'll be bothering him and he won't, say, text back and then i feel that i lost my... quality? my secrecy.. i don't even know how to put it, but i am sure you all understand it. This especialy is a big problem in the beggining of love affairs. How do i let a guy know that i like him? (This is rethorical question)

So let's call my complex A Princess complex, because i feel…
