* Daylight savings starts Sunday

Don´t forget to turn your clocks forward late on Saturday night for daylight savings time. The clocks in Spain and the rest of Europe (except Turkey) will move forward at 1:00am to 2:00am on Sunday, March 27, 2011. So unless you´re out partying till the wee hours on Saturday night, then you might just want to move that clock forward one hour just before you hit the pillow.

Remember the expression to not get confused which way to set the clock. "Spring forward, Fall back"

* The Jeans Factory Marbella Outlet

The Jeans Factory Marbella Outlet is a great place to find designer jeans and clothing on the Costa del Sol. They have all the top brands like Levi´s, Diesel, Ed Hardy, Miss Sixty, B.T Jeans, Moschino, Prada, Tommy Hilfiger and more all at real factory outlet prices.

I just got myself a great pair of B.T. jeans at a fraction of the cost of what I would pay anywhere else. Next, I´ve got my eye on the Juicy Couture sweatsuits! Click here to read more...
