New Quiz: The Autumn Tree Test

three fall trees

Which of these fall trees appeals to you most?

Can you feel fall coming? It’s not technically fall yet, but I’ve been feeling it in the air for the past few weeks. I love the cooler temperatures that fall brings (and of course, they really aren’t that cool in Texas). I am definitely in a fall frame of mind, and that inspired my latest quiz.

Besides the cooler air, one of my favorite things about fall is the changing leaves on trees. We don’t get much fall color here in Texas, but I try to savor any bit I get to see. Thinking about these fall colors led me to write my newest quiz: The Autumn Tree Test

Take the quiz, and let me know what you think about your result. Are you looking forward to fall? I am! Bring on Halloween and Thanksgiving … and all those colorful leaves 🙂

What’s Your Fall Drink Personality? 8 Quizzes to Find Out!

A chile mocha (or plain ole spicy mocha) is one of my favorite fall drinks!

A chile mocha (or plain ole spicy mocha) is one of my favorite fall drinks!

I don’t know about you, but my cravings always tell me when it’s fall. And the number one thing I crave in the fall are warm drinks. Yes, even during the warmer days of Texas fall, I still appreciate a warm and toasty drink on those chilly mornings.

Each fall I am inspired to write a couple new drink quizzes – and to retake some old favorites. Here are my personal picks for fall drink quizzes from Blogthings. Best taken with a warm drink, obviously 🙂

What Autumn Drink Are You? – Let’s start with the basics. What fall drink are you most like? I recommend this quiz to anyone who is not the craziest about trendy fall drinks, because it includes things like beer, apple cider, and mulled wine. With eight outcomes, this covers all the old and modern classics.

What Part of a Pumpkin Spice Latte Are You? – Are you crazy about the PSL? Or maybe just crazy for pumpkin spice? If so, this is the quiz for you. I will be the first to admit that I was a Pumpkin Spice Latte skeptic, and while the Starbucks version is too sweet for me, I do enjoy making my own homemade version!

What Starbucks Fall Drink Are You? – Do you think outside the pumpkin shell? This quiz celebrates all things fall at Starbucks – including Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I recently updated this quiz to include a couple new Starbucks drinks, so I think you’ll enjoy taking it, even if you’ve taken it before.

What Part of a Chai Tea Are You? – When it comes to fall drinks, I tend to go classic and prefer the perfect chai tea (plenty spicy, not too sweet). So of course, I had to include my quiz that pays homage to this delicious beverage!

What Does Your Latte Say About You? – While it’s true that a latte can be enjoyed year round, I really start to crave them in the fall. (Iced lattes are fine in summer, but they aren’t really lattes to me.) Give this quiz your latte preferences, and find out all about yourself!

What Starbucks Hot Chocolate Are You? – Hot chocolate is honestly more of a winter drink for me, but I do crave it on the coldest fall nights. I couldn’t leave this favorite cool weather treat out of the lineup, so here you go. Warning: I *always* crave a hot chocolate after taking this quiz.

The Cappuccino Test – So many fall drinks are such big treats, but sometimes I want something lighter and more portable. For my quick autumn fix, nothing is better that a small cappuccino. Do you agree? Pick your favorite cappuccino in this image quiz, and see what it says about you.

What Flavor Mocha Are You? – If I had to make one prediction about fall drinks, it would be that the mocha latte is going to be the new pumpkin spice latte one of these days. What do you think? I wouldn’t mind – I love a good mocha, especially if you make it spicy. Take this quiz to find out what mocha best suits you!

 

What’s Your Fall Style?

Do you feel like fall is in full swing in your neck of the woods? I feel it here for sure, and I love the cooler temperatures. While I’m not quite ready to break out a jacket yet, I love that I can throw on a scarf or sweater some evenings.

What about you? Do you enjoy fall clothes? I love dressing for fall, so I wrote a whole quiz about fall fashion!  Check out my latest quiz: What’s Your Fall Style? Let me know what you get and how true it is for you.

What Part of Oktoberfest Are You?

Have you ever been to Oktoberfest? It seems like a lot of fun to me! I would probably enjoy the beer a little… and the pretzels, music, and costumes a lot. I think it’s cool that so many areas in the United States are starting to have Oktoberfest celebrations – I hope to get to one someday 🙂

Are you happy that fall has finally arrived? I am! After a rainy late summer, the fall colors in my neck of the woods are more brilliant than usual – which is nice for Austin 🙂 I’m really going to enjoy this fall to the fullest, if I can.

Fall is one of my favorite times of year, and each year I have a list of things I want to do. I don’t get to all of them, but it’s nice to dream. Are you the same way?

Five New Quizzes This Week – Happy November Tea Sipping Weather!

I was both indirectly and directly inspired by fall this week!

I was both indirectly and directly inspired by fall this week!

I’m so happy it’s November! I know that some people don’t like it when the days get shorter, but I do. I love the cold dark nights I spend drinking tea and writing quizzes. I really savor this time of year, and I think my quizzes are inspired by it.

Do you like fall enough to live in it year round? Maybe another season? Take my newest quiz, What Season Could You Live in All Year?, to see what season would be best for you to live in. I am pretty sure I’d be content living in fall or winter year round!

One of the more interesting things about fall is how fashion changes. Dramatic looks fit better, even in the daytime. The evolution of fall looks, especially makeup looks, inspired me to write The Smokey Eye Test. This quick image quiz will tell you what your drama style is.

As I mentioned before (and in many previous blog posts), I love drinking tea. I’m enough of a weirdo to drink it when it’s warm out, but I so prefer a cup of tea when it’s chilly. I have been drinking a lot of extra tea these days, and that inspired my quiz: What Color Tea Are You?

Fall is one of my favorite times for catching up on housework. When it’s cold and dark out, I finally get bored enough to do some extra chores around the house. I don’t love doing housework, but I love the results. If you agree, you might like my quiz: What Kind of Housework Are You?

Not exactly fall related, but I find that a lot of people I know are going through a career or education change right now. If you’re currently reevaluating your options – or even looking for a side project – you should take Where Do Your Talents Lie?
