Say meow to Connor Claire, land of sassy sayings and playful patterns for feline friends and lovers of lipstick. Do you mind if my cat Tabs hangs out with us? Don't worry, he's only 18 pounds...of brute force love! I'm Karen, and Connor Claire is my lifestyle brand. I hope our products brighten your day and put a smile on your face.
Have we met before? Perhaps over at Makeup and Beauty Blog? -- where I share my passion for makeup, cats, puns and design? If we have, hey, girl, haaaaay! It's nice to see you. If we haven't, it's nice to meet you.
The Connor Claire brand is all about my favorite things in the world, and it's also named after my daughter.
I started Connor Claire because... Well, honestly, I blame the shower...because that's where I got the idea, standing under the water, wrangling my unruly hair into shampooed submission.
One day I was in there giving myself a scalp massage (because if you don't do it, nobody else will, ya know?), and I started thinking of cute cats to draw and slogans to put on shirts.
Then I immediately started cracking up! -- and yes, damn right, I am that person who laughs maniacally to herself in the bathroom.
Anyway...that's where the idea to start Connor Claire was born.
The brand is a big hug across the Internet, so to speak, to the friends I've made (both human and cat) through Makeup and Beauty Blog. I'm inspired by your kindness, your passion for makeup, your flair for fun and, of course, your love for the felines.
We're located in the town of Novato, California, which is about 30 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco.
As part of Team Connor Claire, my responsibilities include working as the official Connor Claire designer, photographer, product tester, copywriter and occasional model.
Tabs also wanted an official role (well, mostly he wanted a title), so he's the CFO, or "Chief Feline Officer," and his primary duties include napping in the middle of the day and serving as my design muse.
My daughter, the real life Connor Claire (please don't call her "C.C."), occasionally lends her baby modeling talents, and my husband, also known as "El Hub," helps keep the Connor Claire website up and running.
