Welcome to Little Bit of Living! My name is Rachel McLendon and I am the face behind Little Bit of Living! I am an alumni of Texas A&M University with a bachelors degree in Agricultural Communications and a minor in Sports Management! I am 22 years old and live in Houston with my husband, Patrick, and our three furry children, Sadie, Remi, and Molly! I am a gluten-free, dog mom (of three), clothes and shoes obsessed, lover of all things life!
Why did you start a blog?
My biggest goal with Little Bit of Living is to share all things gluten-free, dogs, fashion and beauty, and other things I experience in life!
I love to shop and love to find the best deals! Why not share them?!
My freshman year of college, I found out that I had celiac disease. I remember how hard it was for me to learn everything I needed to know. What I could eat, what shampoo and conditioner I could use, what skin care and make up products I could use, and the list goes on. I hope to share what I have learned with those who are going through the same experience to make their transition easier than mine was. I am an extremely picky eater and can’t wait to share gluten free recipes that I find and love!
I also am crazy about all things dogs! I hope to find the best pet-friendly products and services and can’t wait to share them with y’all!
How did you come up with your blog name?
It took me a long time to decide on a name because I wanted it to accurately describe what my blog will be about. Little Bit of Living really is a little glimpse inside the many aspects of my crazy, beautiful life!
Who takes your pictures?
I have a photographer named Kimberly who takes most of my photos! You can view her work HERE. If she doesn’t take it either my husband does or I use a tripod!
Why are you gluten-free?
I was diagnosed with celiac disease when I was a freshman in college. I had problems with my stomach my entire life but never thought much about it. When I moved away for college, I was eating out frequently, and the problem got worse. I went to the doctor and sure enough, they pin pointed the problem!
How many dogs do you have and what are their names?
My husband and I have three dogs and their names are Molly, Sadie and Remi. Molly is a miniature dachshund, Sadie is a lab mix, and Remi is a Labrador retriever. I adopted Molly my freshman year of college, Patrick adopted Sadie shortly after we started dating and we got Remi when she was 6 weeks old.
