i saw in 2010 at the 5HED, but 2011 sees the return of the hallowed danes house party.
midnight's barrier is just that little bit more tangible between years, but the fog has lifted and i have sparkly thigh-high socks.
happy new year (:

ps, if you fancy a sort of 2010 breakdown type thing (why you would, i've no clue) you can find it on my tumblr, which i created as a side-effect of my boredom when i couldn't sleep until four in the morning.

big, cosy jumper, thick tights, and a dress with... paper chains printed on it?
merry christmas, internet at large.

by the way, none of these are actually christmas presents, just things i really, really like.

4. i spy lambananas
5. with selena on my birthday

i've spent today in my room, eating heroes (do not check my bin for evidence of wrappers), listening to radio one's chart show, and putting fairy lights in my window.


and the winner is...:
(i'm just about to leave a comment on your blog/twitter - well done!)

thanks to all my wonderful followers, some of the answers were actually amazing. and, as some of you said, i'm drinking a cup of tea right now. although i don't tend to reserve that just for winter...
as i have no lectures for the rest of the year (yay!) tonight will be an evening of taking advantage of the university's fast internet connection and catching up on blogs.

all the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey

title lyrics: california dreamin - the mamas and the papas, but the john mayer version is so good! tam has definitely brainwashed me...

i weirdly like doing diary posts, even if it means sitting there for ages on photoshop with the blur tool.
i'm oddly willing to show the vast majority of these pages with strangers from foreign lands, considering i find it difficult to tell my friends how i feel on a day to day basis.


a loaded gun won't set you free, so you say

i've been so, so bad in terms of blogging recently, but here are some photos from when i went home last month. i'll catch up with replying to comments, i promise!
i turned nineteen on monday, had a horrific hangover on tuesday, and now i feel normal. it's been a shocker of a few weeks, to say the least.


i'm loving every idiosyncrasy - GIVEAWAY

rebecca cohen giveawayrebecca cohen giveaway
alexa wants to celebrate too!

seeing as i've reached five hundred followers, its nearly christmas and it's my birthday next week (nineteen, scary) now seems like the perfect time to say thank you to all my wonderful followers. and, as it's the festive season, what everyone needs is that uglycute jumper to wear when sipping on glühwein and making mince pies.

this jumper is from a little shop in liverpool called pop boutique which sells mens and womens vintage clothing as well as homewares, cards and some of their own designs. this jumper is made by pop and it has reindeers on it. reindeers! it's super comfy, so when i've got my birthday money i may have to go back and get a similar one for myself. this is a medium and fits me fine (i vary between a 10 and 12 uk dress size, never thought i'd be saying that online...), i'd say it'd comfortably fit sizes 4-14.

if you'd like to enter just comment below saying what your favourite thing about winter is.
as it's a thank-you to my followers, it's only fair that entrants must be a follower of my blog via google friend connect/blogger. for extra entries you can tweet about this giveaway @rebeccacohen and follow me via bloglovin', just let me know in your comment.

the giveaway is open to international readers and closes on wednesday fifteenth december.

good luck (: xo

an insight (with a worrying amount of words)

rebecca cohen blog

the above jumper was sent to me buy the lovely vicky of aha shake heartbreaker. it's so fluffy and perfect for keeping me warm that i wore it straight away to the fireworks display that evening. she has some amazing outfits and i'm not jealous of her bag in any way at all!

five hundred followers?
you're all beautiful people!
i'm going shopping asap with amy to get a little something for one of you, let's see what liverpool shops have to offer...

looking back, i realise i've never really given any basic facts about myself, so maybe now's the time to have a go (:

i like to have something on my wrist at all times. not a watch, but things i can genuinely forget about. ribbon, string, etc. currently all i have is my brownstock wristband... it's only a matter of time before the collection builds up again.

i was walking down brook street the other day and got weirdly emotional seeing that the luella shop had been converted into an aspinal's of london. i miss her so much... but then i met up with friends and went to starbucks (ADDICTION) and then a restaurant for his birthday. swings and roundabouts.

i like to go out without a plan. it often leads to things that... well, it's safe to say that i've made mistakes, but i don't think that's a bad thing. necessarily.

i play up to characters quite a bit. i try and embody the better characteristics of luna lovegood, cassie ainsworth, the lisbon sisters, blair waldorf and alexa chung (to name but a few).

1) my wrist a couple of weeks ago.
2) luella (source)
3) mt and jm on the way to frinton.
4) tennessee thomas and alexa chung (i can't remember the source, sorry!)
5) drinking bollinger post-hot house.

sorry for the sheer amount of words... i'll be less sentimental next time, i promise. xo

speckles on the physical barrier between myself and the world, reflecting the blue flashes repeatedly until their urgency is irrelevant
thigh highs and low rise
stagger out of sync
running in front of buses, through pollution and into brief euphoria

i've just made myself a cup of tea in the starbucks mug i liberated and i'm going to watch wednesday's gossip girl and i'm going to ignore the weird amount of texts i'm receiving for 1:14 in the morning.
