b/ Jump up, take a quick shower and go for a morning run through the park?

d/ You get up grudgingly... 7am is too early!

2. What snack would you choose mid-morning?

d/ Romantic, boho styles with lots of layers and flowing fabrics.

5. Footwear... what would you choose?

7. Later, you are planning to:

b/ Go to your dance class, then meet some mates to plan tomorrow's adventures.
c/  Party - life is for living!
d/ Curl up at home, read a book and dream...

Mostly a... you are a WINTER person, happiest snuggled up in the warm sipping hot chocolate, taking a brisk walk through the crisp snow or building a snowman with friends! You're warm, loving and caring with a great sense of fun!
Mostly b... you are a SPRING person, full of energy and enthusiasm! You're always on the go and love spending time outside - you're sporty, but have a real love of nature also. Friends describe you as adventurous, brave, happy and loyal.
Mostly c... you are a SUMMER person, a real sun-worshipper who loves luxury, style and new experiences. You are outgoing, confident and always the life and soul of any friendship group... you know what you want and others respect you for it!
Mostly d... you are an AUTUMN person, gentle, romantic and a bit of a dreamer! You sometimes seem shy, but that's because you live a lot in your imagination, and friends value your kindness, creativity and quirky approach to life!

Cathy says:
Ooh, fascinating! Were you mostly a, b, c or d? Or a mixture? I was mostly AUTUMN... and it's definitely partly true! COMMENT BELOW to let me know how accurate YOUR results are!


  1. Yes I too am definitely an Autumn lass. This quiz was spookily accurate!
    Well done quiz creator!

  2. I'm d! Autumn - the description describes me perfectly :)

  3. I got autumn, and as much as I love the colours and smells, I'd say I'm much more of a spring/summer girl...

  4. fun quiz, I got mostly b Spring........hmmmm not sure about full of energy!!!! I got a lot of a's too though most like Winter I think for me!! hot chocolates ETC

  5. I'm a and d, which suits me perfectly =D

  6. Spring for me. Some of the answers didn't appeal to me at all so I had to go for the closest answer. I suppose I do quite like spring, it's not as uncomfortably hot as summer but not as cold and dark as autumn and winter. Plus several people who have hurt me suffer from hayfever and there's lots of pollen in spring - mwah ha ha! And growing up in a farming town, spring has always meant cute little lambs to me! They're so little and fuzzy.

  7. Winter and Autumn. I always thought I was a summer person, but when I read what it says about Winter and Autumn I thought the descriptions sounded a lot like me!

  8. (mainly)Summer and Winter(in second place)- two completely different seasons but I do love them both! :D

  9. I had mostly d and the description is very accurate for me! I might aswell live in my head, for all I daydream!!!

  10. Autumn- and so true!

  11. Autumn... true. ��

  12. Autumn... Yeah. I think I relate to it a lot.I daydream and imagine so much. I like my own fantasy world more than reality!

  13. I took the quiz and I am Autumn! Yippeeeee!!!!!
