Colorful 6 Piece Dry Measuring Cups: Architec Purelast Ecosmart Measuring Cups Review

My little baker has been very busy in the kitchen now that the weather has gotten cooler. The aroma of homemade cinnamon rolls, pumpkin scones and cookies floods our home with warm sweetness.

Sally's Baking Addiction Sugar Cookie Recipe

There is always some little yummy goody to tempt me into eating too much sugar. Sure sugar tastes good, but it has been a mission of mine to reduce my sugar intake since I found out it can cause inflammation. Don't get me wrong, I still eat sugar especially when my daughter creates an irresistible confection. I just try to eat less of it!

Lately, my girl has had a problem with my 35 year old vintage set of 6 orange Tupperware dry measuring cups.

Or shall I say 2 problems. #1. She doesn't like the orange color. It's not cute. She likes cute. Orange is not one of her favorite colors and it doesn't really match our kitchen. She's not wrong. I never liked the orange myself. The measuring cups were a wedding shower gift I received along with a set of matching measuring spoons. She doesn't like the spoons either! #2. She also doesn't like the lingering food odors the plastic has retained over the years. Again, she's not wrong. Those cups have held many, many chopped onions! 

My daughter has had a problem with her hunt for new measuring cups in our local stores, though. Many sets of dry measuring cups only include four measuring cups, a 1/4 cup, a 1/3 cup, a 1/2 cup and a 1 cup. The vintage Tupperware set of 6 cups is much more convenient. She also found that many sets of dry measuring cups are stainless steel which she doesn't find to be very fun.

Cute, fun, colorful measuring cups are what she's after. Architec Purelast Measuring Cups seem to measure up to her standards. They are cute and colorful. They come in a set of 6 cups. They coordinate beautifully with her set of measuring spoons. They are beauty for your kitchen!

Plus, they are made of durable, earth friendly bamboo and rice fibers!

She found them online at Bed, Bath & Beyond for $12.99 and on Amazon Prime for $9.29. Amazon Prime had them to her with free shipping in two days. So are they worth it?

Our Review:
The Architec Purelast Measuring Cups are super cute and the colors are bright and happy. They have a nice, solid, heavy feel to them and are easy to clean. You can put them in the dishwasher but we hand wash them. The cup measurements are embossed onto the handles of the six cups. The handles are long and easy to hold. The cups are made of plant fibers and a food safe non plastic binder but they feel like a smooth hard plastic.

You can easily open the metal ring and remove all the cups.

The one issue these measuring cups have is they can tip easily. My daughter says this is a non issue for her since she measures and pours her ingredients right away. She doesn't fill her measuring cup ahead and let it sit on the baking island before adding the contents to the mixing bowl. This could be an issue for you if you like to set out all your ingredients in the measuring cups before your start mixing. 

I like to set out all my ingredients before I mix but I add the ingredients to small bowls. It never fails that I have the 1 cup measuring cup full of sugar but then I need it for 1 cup of flour. That's why I measure then pour the ingredient into a small bowl. So the tipsiness of these cups is not an issue for me either. I found my favorite colorful multi patterned porcelain bowls ⬇ for holding ingredients, cereal and pasta on Amazon!  Check them out. You'll love them!
The manufacturer says these cups should not be put in the microwave or be used with colored gelatin. I assume the gelatin will stain them.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out. Read more about blackhead, whiteheads and blind pimples This is a common problem for the under-eye area. It is a dry, delicate area of the skin. I see it a lot on my clients. Heavy products

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w


This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
