In the scene when Bella first joins her friends at the table in the school cafeteria after her long depression, as she is talking to Mike, if you look at her hair by her left ear, you can see a bobby pin that may have fallen out of her hair piece or is just not hidden well. When the scenes changes to Mike and then back to Bella the bobby pin is gone.

When Bella is trying to reach Jacob after his abrupt departure from the movie theater, she is in her living room doing her homework while her father is watching an Arizona Wildcats college football game on TV. Football season would have been over by this time, which should have been March or April (according to the fact that Bella's last visible email to Alice was on February 13, her sent email folder is organized by date and the last emails she's sent are at the bottom, as evidenced by the fact we see February 11, yesterday and today at the bottom) and she had spent at least a month or so working on the bikes with Jacob).

Laurent doesn't glow like the vampires do, though he is outside. However, it's not so much sunny as overcast. We see Edward and the other Cullens outside many times during the day when it's light but overcast, and they never sparkle.

Continuity 

In the scene immediately following Bella, Edward and Alice's return from Volterra, Bella wakes up in her bed screaming. She is wearing a tank top, however, there is no scar on the upper right portion of her arm from when Dr. Cullen had to stitch her up after Jasper's attack on her birthday. As it had only been a few months since the incident Bella should have been sporting a scar.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Bella is said to be immune to vampires' special abilities as highlighted when facing the Volturi, however, Jasper is able to control her mood in regards to her birthday party. In fact, her immunity is to powers that affect the mind, whereas Jasper's powers affect the hormones that control emotions.
