Happy National Look Alike Day

Who do you look like?

So today is National Look Alike Day, which sounds sort of silly, but let’s be honest for a second. Haven’t you wondered who you look like? Whether it’s a celebrity or just fellow human, I think we are all curious to see ourselves through others’ eyes. Look alikes fascinate us, especially if they are our own lookalikes. And while some apps have tried to tell us which celebrity or famous painting we look like, they always seem to miss the mark.

I’ll be the first to admit that Blogthings does not have a good quiz for telling you your celebrity lookalike, but there are still some quizzes to find out more about your looks:


What Sign Do You Look Like?
– Do you think zodiac signs have a particular physicality to them? More importantly, do you look like your sign? Take this quiz to find out!


What Season Do You Look Like?
Have you ever seen someone who just screamed summer or winter? Who knows? This could also be you. This quiz will let you know what season you convey with your looks.


Who’s Your Sex and the City Fashion Twin?
Sex and the City may be dated at this point, but its fashion is often timeless. Which Sex and the City woman best represents you style wise?


Who Are Your Totally 90s Celebrity Sisters?
– Want even more of a retro fix? Then find out which celebrity sisters you would have been tight with in the 90s.

Happy Pizza Cake Day!

Pizzacake

Pizza or cake? Why choose one?

Happy National Pizza Cake Day. Hey, I’m not gonna judge – especially considering I haven’t even had breakfast yet and am starving. I love pizza, and I love cake. So why not a cake out of pizza? Especially if it’s followed up by a real cake that actually looks like pizza!

To celebrate Pizza Cake Day, I have a few questions for you. Luckily, they come in the form of a quiz 🙂 Answer here or tag me on social media with your responses!

1) 
What Does Your Pizza Say About You?
 – Look y’all, I don’t want to get political, but we live in a divided country. And I think you know what I mean. Is pineapple an acceptable pizza topping? Thin crust or thick crust? Let’s hash it out once and for all. State your pizza preferences in this quiz to find out where you truly stand.

2) 
What Kind of Cake Are You?
 – Next things next, what kind of cake are you? I’m definitely a chocolate cake, no question about it. But I’m down for almost any kind of cake. I’ve been known to eat cake for breakfast, and I’m not talking muffins. I’m taking real cake with frosting!

3) 
What Pizza Topping Are You?
 – When it comes to pizza, I like to consider myself pretty open minded. But in the end, there is one topping that I love above all others (caramelized onions), and I suspect most folks are the same way. Take this quiz to learn what one pizza topping you are.

4)
The Birthday Cake Test
 – Let’s get real. The best kind of cake is birthday cake. But only when it’s eaten on your birthday. Hey, I didn’t make up the rules, but birthday cake just doesn’t taste the same when it’s not your cake. (Can this be applied to life somehow? Ooooh, deep.) Take this quiz to get a little insight on the personality you were born with.

5) 
What City’s Pizza Are You?
 – What was your best pizza eating experience? Some of the best pizza I’ve had has been on the road (Detroit pizza anyone), even though I live in a decent pizza neighborhood. If you’re dreaming of some pizza inspired travels, then you’ve gotta take this quiz.

New Quiz: What’s Your Forest Inspired Name?

What forest name should you have?

I love the forest, especially in the late fall, when in many areas there’s a chance of changing leaves or even snow. It’s one of my dreams to live on a wooded lot, and while I may not ever get there, I can dream. I love pictures of wooded areas, books set in them, and of course films too. I was thinking about my love of the forest the other day, and it inspired me to write a whole name quiz based on the woods!

Take my latest quiz: What’s Your Forest Inspired Name? Let me know what name you get, and if you like it. Are you also drawn to the forest?

New Quiz: Are You a Novelty Seeker?

Do you crave adventure in your life?

Do you seek new and exciting things? I was first introduced to the concept of novelty seeking many years ago, when I was in middle school. I took a quiz about novelty seeking, and I was hooked on personality quizzes. (Back then I scored as a strong novelty seeker, not so sure about that now!). Anyway, I still find the idea fascinating – as some friends will suggest the same activities over and over, while others crave something new.

Novelty seeking is pretty interesting because at first psychologists thought it was a bad thing, and now they’re not so sure. A lot of the wrong novelty seeking can get you in trouble in life, but it’s also something we need to stay creative and fresh. So it’s more about striking a balance or having the right novelty seeking.

What about you? Do you like newness in life? Take my latest quiz: Are You a Novelty Seeker? Let me know what you get on this one, and what you think of your result. What areas of your life do you look for novelty?

New Quiz: What’s Your Celtic Name?

What Celtic name should you have?

Do you like Celtic names? I think they are so beautiful, and I can see why they are a big name trend in America. I was inspired to write a Celtic name quiz today, because I think Celtic names go well with autumn weather. There’s something about crisp air that feels cozy just like I imagine Ireland, Scotland, and Wales to feel.

What about you? Would you like a Celtic name? If so, take my latest quiz: What’s Your Celtic Name? Let me know what name you get and if you like it!

New Quiz: What Mona Lisa Smile Character Are You?

Mona Lisa Smile

What character from the movie Mona Lisa Smile are you?

Have you seen the movie Mona Lisa Smile? I missed this one when it first came out, which is kind of surprising given its stellar cast (Julia Roberts, Kirsten Dunst, Julia Stiles, and Maggie Gyllenhaal to name a few). It’s a look at 1950s life at a women’s college, and I thought it would make the perfect Blogthings quiz, since so many of the characters are interesting and likable.

Are you a fan of Mona Lisa Smile? Then take my latest quiz: What Mona Lisa Smile Character Are You? What do you think of your result? Is it accurate?

What creepy costume should you wear for Halloween?

Happy Halloween! Are you excited for Halloween this year? I am psyched to give out candy to all the cute neighborhood kids. I don’t know if I’ll pull together a last minute costume, but if I did, it would have to be something creepy. I figure I may as well go all out and scare some people! It’s the only night of the year you’re allowed to!

If you’re like me and daydreaming about creepy costumes this year, take my latest quiz: What Creepy Costume Should You Wear? Let me know what you get, and if you plan on dressing up this year.

Craving more Halloween quizzes? I’ve got a ton of them that I’ve written over the years! I especially recommend How Scary Are You? and What’s Your Pumpkin Face?

New Quiz: What’s Your Ghost Name?

If you were a ghost, what would your name be?

Are you into ghosts? I feel like they’re quite forgotten these days while we’re all talking about vampires, werewolves, and scary clowns! However, the very first scary stories I ever heard or watched were ghost stories, and maybe you feel the same way. I love to revisit this classic spooky genre every Halloween, and what better way than with a name quiz?

Take my latest quiz: What’s Your Ghost Name? to learn what your ghost name would be. Share your result in the comments below. What do you think of your ghost name?

What Practical Magic Witch Are You?

What witch are you more like?

Have you seen the movie Practical Magic? I think it’s a ton of fun, especially if you are a fan of Sandra Bullock or Nicole Kidman. It’s not exactly a horror movie, and I turn to it when I want lighter fare for Halloween.

Without giving too much away about the plot, Practical Magic is a movie that features two very different witch sisters, both of whom are cursed when it comes to love. There are a lot of warm moments, funny scenes, and even some heartbreak.

If you’re already a fan of this movie, then check out my latest quiz: What Practical Magic Witch Are You? Let me know what you think of the result and if you’re a fan of this movie!

New Quiz: Are You Wise?

How much wisdom do you have?

Do you consider yourself a wise person? I think we are all working on wisdom, and I would never call myself wise per say. For a long time, I avoided writing a wisdom quiz. After all, what is wisdom?

Recently, I had a change of heart over writing a wisdom quiz. It turns out that psychologists are starting to develop their own framework of wisdom, and it’s fascinating. Wisdom involves compassion (especially self-compassion), reflection, and comfort with uncertainty. I can get behind all those!
