She underwent a dramatic make-under last week after ditching her bright blonde hair extensions and toning down her makeup.

And on Thursday, MAFS’ Elizabeth Sobinoff continued to flaunt her new look while celebrating her 28th birthday.

In videos shared to Instagram, the 28-year-old showed off her darker tresses while sporting natural makeup.

My how you’ve changed! MAFS’ Elizabeth Sobinoff recently ditched her platinum blonde hair extensions and toned down her makeup as part of a make-under 

Elizabeth also ditched her trademark winged eyeliner in favour of simple mascara, a soft pink rouge on her cheeks and pale pink lip gloss.

After recently celebrating her 28th birthday, Elizabeth showed off the extravagant gifts she received.

In another video, she was seen dancing in front of the camera while holding her adorable pet dog.

Last week, Elizabeth took to Instagram to debut curly hair, after dying her hair from blonde to brown.

She highlighted her eyes with a simple dusting of gold eye shadow. 

She completed her makeup look with a slick of nude pink lipstick and a subtle swipe of blush. 

Flashback: Elizabeth’s trademark dark eye-makeup was nowhere to be seen, and instead the beauty highlighted her eyes with a simple dusting of gold eye shadow

Ready for the big time? NW magazine claimed on Monday that MAFS’ Elizabeth Sobinoff has had a ‘Bachelorette makeover’ as she is making moves to star in the next season of the show. Elizabeth is pictured left, in her old look and right, after her makeover

Last month, the retail worker first shared a photo of herself with sleek new brunette locks on Instagram. 

‘Oh yeah, this happened…’ the jewellery store manager wrote alongside the shot as she showed off her stunning post-show transformation. 

During her time on MAFS, Elizabeth became known for her heavy eye makeup, which included thick, winged mascara and smoky eye-shadow. 

Her hair extensions also became a huge talking point among fans, with Elizabeth herself even branding them ‘horrendous’. 

Elizabeth was paired with Sam Ball on the show, but left solo after her TV ‘husband’ went on to have an ‘affair’ with fellow contestant Ines Basic.

Cindy Crawford’s $8 Drugstore Mascara Has Amazing Reviews

Cindy Crawford’s $8 Drugstore Mascara Has Amazing Reviews

Sure, Cindy Crawford’s supermodel life might seem unattainable, but her morning beauty routine certainly isn’t. In a new video for Vogue, Crawford revealed all the products she uses for her everyday face, including $26 Nars concealer and Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Mascara ($8). The latter is an especially smart drugstore find, as it boasts hundreds of stellar reviews. 

In her video, Crawford also explained how she’s changed her beauty routine in her 40s and 50s, including nixing powder because it “tends to settle in those fine lines and wrinkles,” she says. “Definitely, I have found as I’ve gotten older, I wear way less makeup. That’s the biggest evolution for me, which is kind of counterintuitive, but that also means that taking care of your skin is more important because you’re not covering up your skin with makeup.” Scroll down to watch Crawford’s new Vogue video and shop the products she mentions.

The company also reported that Instagram Stories reached 500 million daily active users, up from 400 million in June 2018. Facebook’s advertising revenue across all of its products reached over $16.6 billion, up $3 billion since the previous quarter. Of the $3 billion, $2 billion came from Stories ads. (1:44)

Facebook Shares Q4 2018 Earnings Report

In a post on his personal Facebook profile, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg discussed the company’s priorities for 2019 and shared plans to focus on Stories, messaging products, and Groups.

We just released our community update and quarterly results.

We’ve fundamentally changed how we run our company to…

Posted by Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday, January 30, 2019

In this segment, Mari Smith mentioned Facebook Blueprint, a free online hub with eLearning courses to help business owners and marketers learn the skills to grow their business and make the most of Facebook tools, advertising, and resources. You can also use this site to find out more about Facebook’s Advertiser Help Center and Facebook Blueprint Certification program.

Facebook also launched a new brand safety certification program for Facebook Marketing Partners. The first companies to receive certification are DoubleVerify, an ad measurement platform, and OpenSlate, a video content rating platform for marketers, both of which are launching new Facebook brand safety tools.

Facebook Plans for Possible WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram Integration: The New York Times reported that Facebook is planning to integrate Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram into a unified underlying technical infrastructure. Facebook states that the services would continue to operate as stand-alone apps and offer end-to-end encryption, which means all messages will be protected from being viewed by anyone except the participants in a conversation. (35:10)

Mark Zuckerberg once vowed to keep WhatsApp and Instagram independent. He’s reversing course to keep users inside Facebook’s ecosystem.

— The New York Times (@nytimes) January 25, 2019

The integration plan raises antitrust scrutiny and questions about data protection and security. It also leads to concerns about the influence Facebook could have over news and politics if all of its messaging products are essentially linked and enable cross-platform communication.

Facebook Launches New Privacy and Data Resource for Businesses: Facebook launched a new privacy and data use hub to help businesses understand and comply with its policies. The website offers access to Facebook’s data usage policies, insights on how specific tools and ad products utilize audience information, and advice on how business users can protect their audience’s data and information. (43:56)

Facebook Launches New Privacy and Data Hub to Help Businesses Understand its Policies

Facebook also published an article titled, Understanding Facebook’s Business Model, which provides transparency in very simple terms on how ads and content are distributed on the platform. The company also explains what it means when its users’ data and information are shared with advertisers.

Facebook Charters Oversight Board for Content Decisions: Facebook announced its plans to create an independent body to oversee all of Facebook’s content decisions, and it has gone as far as drafting a charter that gives more detail about the potential makeup of this oversight board. (48:45)

Facebook Apologizes for Data Collection App as Apple Pulls Plug on Distribution of the App: It was discovered that Facebook has been secretly paying users ages 13-35 up to $20 per month plus referral fees to install a “Facebook Research” VPN that allows the company to monitor all of the user’s phone and web activity and have root access to network traffic. This app is a violation of Apple’s policy, and in response, the company revoked Facebook’s access to its Enterprise Developer Program and blocked the Facebook Research program. (52:12)

Apple now tells us it actually blocked Facebook’s Research program yesterday before Facebook announced it would end the program on iOS without mentioning Apple forced it do so tip @Techmeme

— Josh Constine (@JoshConstine) January 30, 2019

Google has been running a similar data collection app called Screenwise Meter. TechCrunch reports that it bears a strong resemblance to the app distributed by Facebook Research that has now been barred by Apple. Following the crackdown on Facebook’s Research VPN iOS app, Google announced it will remove Screenwise Meter from Apple’s Enterprise Certificate program and disable it on iOS devices.

Update: Google said it was a “mistake” to use an internal-only Apple certificate to distribute a research app outside of the App Store — just a day after Facebook was caught doing the same thing.

#CES2019: Live Blog From the World’s Largest Tech Fair – NBC 7 San Diego

#CES2019: Live Blog From the World’s Largest Tech Fair – NBC 7 San Diego

NBC Bay Area reporter Jonathan Bloom is in Las Vegas where he will be checking out the latest tech trends at the Consumer Electronics Show.

Watch this space for more from Jonathan @BloomTV.


That shiny 4K TV you just got? Already obsolete.

This year, 8K TVs will be among the innovations taking center stage at CES in Las Vegas, the biggest annual event in the consumer electronics world.

With an estimated 2.5 million square feet of exhibit space and nearly 4,000 companies showing off their goods, CES (which used to be called the Consumer Electronics Show) is where the biggest makers of TVs, cars and computer chips come to announce their latest advances, and smaller companies come to debut their new products — including some that might not ever make it to market.

TVs are expected to get bigger, laptops are expected to get smaller, and cars are expected to get smarter. Many of these devices will talk to each other over next-generation 5G cellular networks, and we can expect to hear announcements from the major wireless carriers about how they’ll begin rolling out 5G data speeds to consumers.

In a classic case of “what’s old is new again,” there’s an awful lot of buzz about foldable phones leading up to CES 2019 — though they’ll do a lot more than your old flip phone from 2005. In this case, the technology is foldable color displays, and we could see them show up in futuristic laptop and tablet designs — products that may or may not ultimately be mass-produced for consumers.

In the past, CES has served as the center of the self-driving car world. This year, things are expected to be quiet in that department, after an Uber self-driving vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian in March, slowing the pace of innovation across the industry. Car makers appear focused on innovation for human-driven cars, including all-electric concept vehicles.

We’ll be covering CES in Las Vegas starting on Sunday evening, so watch this space for updates on all the announcements!


5G Cellular Could Change How You Drive:It’s called Cellular V2X — which means “vehicle to everything.” Automakers and cell phone chipmakers are teaming up to get cars “talking” to each other — which could help prevent crashes whether the drivers are humans or robots.


Google’s Amusement Park Ride at CES: In the battle of the smart voice assistants, Google’s CES marketing stunt outdid them all: a full-fledged indoor amusement park ride, complete with rain and fog effects, that takes riders through a chaotic day in the life of a dad chasing after Grandma’s birthday cake with the help of the Google Assistant.


Do you like beer? Now, you can brew your own right on your kitchen counter — even if you’re not a certified brewmaster. LG’s HomeBrew sits on your counter, with two stainless steel tanks and a shiny beer tap, and takes care of all the details. You add the ingredients, it makes the beer — and cleans itself when it’s done.

At @amazon’s #CES2019 booth, the message is clear: your new car is front and center for #Alexa integration.

.@LironSlon developed what she says is the smallest and longest-lasting smart tag on the market. It’s being used to make “smart clothing” that rewards fans for wearing their favorite brands and team logos.

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 10, 2019

#CES2019 has been far more inclusive for women than last year. CTA says 40% of keynote speakers are women. Last year, there were none. @ELLEmagazine and @HP are hosting this after hours dinner for #WomeninTech (and, yes, a couple of male journalists who are covering it.)

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 10, 2019


CES tech show kicks off in Las Vegas: From a flying taxi to a virtual roller coaster, the tech world’s biggest yearly event shows a peek at what life could be like in the not-so-distant future.

I got to check out the @Etergo_official “Tesla of scooters” — right before its creators were surprised with this innovation award!

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 9, 2019

Kangaroo is a home security system that costs $30. That’s the price of this motion sensor, which connects to your home WiFi. You can buy more sensors if you want, or get professional monitoring if you want it to call the police.

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 9, 2019

At #CES2019, the battle of the tiny drones continues. The $99 “Selfly” snaps onto the back of your phone case! It flies for just 4 and a half minutes, but it has a swappable battery, and you can get a charging case for $25.

For seniors in Japan who live in places where they can’t have pets, this adorable pillow “Qoobo” wags it’s tail when you pet it.

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 9, 2019

This $180,000 machine can be a virtual roller coaster — or a few different ones — and fits in a shopping mall. It’s a bargain compared to $5,000,000 for a REAL roller coaster. You can even feel the wind in your face!

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 8, 2019

Augmented reality is becoming real. But the glasses still look kind of funny. The nearly flawless face tracking AI on my @Sony camera doesn’t recognize these women as human — so it focuses on the crowd of onlookers instead!

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 8, 2019

Beer here! @LGUS won a #CES2019 innovation award for this kitchen appliance that home-brews beer. Just drop in the ingredients, and in 2-3 weeks, you can pour a cold one straight from the tap!

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 8, 2019

Similar to the pilot going on at @bishopranch, companies like @MercedesBenz are showing off their visions for small, shared autonomous buses — no driver’s seat required.

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 8, 2019

The @BellFlight#FlyBellNexus takes off and lands vertically, and flies horizontally at up to 150mph. That means your flying @uber could get you from San Francisco to San Jose in less than half an hour.

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 8, 2019


The biggest tech event of the year has arrived. We got early looks at some of the biggest exhibits at CES, and talked with experts about the trends that might change lives and living rooms in the coming year.

It’s makeup gone digital. By 2020, @PGVstudio will launch Opté, which scans your skin and prints tiny bits of makeup right onto age spots and sunspots, leaving the rest of your skin uncovered.

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 8, 2019

Good boy! @Sony is here with Aibo, the robotic dog that remembers your face. They’ll start shipping Aibo in the U.S. this year.

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 8, 2019

Here it is… @PepcomEvents Digital Experience at #CES2019, where a lot of the brands you already know show off products you haven’t seen before.

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 8, 2019

LG’s roll-up OLED TV is the biggest thing in your living room… until it’s not. They say this is the year it will finally go on sale to consumers.

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 8, 2019

This “waterfall” of over 200 curved OLED displays is the dramatic entrance to LG’s #CES2019 booth.

A cordless hair dryer you can use in your Uber, a robot that will fold your clothes, and a kitchen sink you can talk to — CES 2019 is off to a start!

Live from #CES2019 media preview!

FoldiMate folds your clothes for you. An entire load of laundry in just a few minutes. (It also folds way more neatly than I do!)

— Jonathan Bloom (@BloomTV) January 7, 2019

You can talk to your car, your TV and just about everything but the kitchen sink. Well, now… there’s a voice activated kitchen sink!

This nondescript box could be a porch pirate’s worst nightmare. It watches and streams video as couriers approach your house and drop in a package. Then it holds that package in a secure compartment until you come home.

The VOLO Go is a cordless hair dryer. Its makers confirm that YES, you can use it in an Uber on the way to a party.
