The Cottage Fairy Companion is your accessible and beautiful guide to mindful living. It teaches the fundamentals of cottagecore style through the practices of The Cottage Fairy’s daily life.

Romanticize your life anywhere. The Cottage Fairy Companion helps readers open their eyes to the everyday magic right in front of them. It gives a new perspective by revealing the lessons nature teaches about finding beauty through the good times and the bad.

Use mindfulness for healing and fulfillment. Paola Merrill, author and creator behind the popular YouTube channel The Cottage Fairy, left a hectic life in the city for the rural mountains in search of a deeper connection to herself and the world. She learned that nature is the biggest teacher of all—if we open our eyes to its wisdom. Mindful living can be applied in most walks of life, and Merrill’s writing encourages you to find healing and fulfillment, wherever you are.

Inside this enchanting book on mindful living, you’ll find:

  • Insight to creating a cozy and inspiring space, living in alignment with natural cycles and seasons, and gardening and making tea
  • Original illustrations and breathtaking photos of the author’s cottage, crafts, and the countryside
  • Calming, meditative prose to promote tranquility and stillness in a hectic world
