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. Everyone-from city-dwellers to country bobkins-can find delight in this book. It shows that you do not need a cottage in the rustic countryside to achieve a cottagecore aesthetic, or to apply aspects of slow living to your daily life.

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
If you liked Cozy White Cottage, Simply Living Well, or The Little Book of Cottagecore, you'll love The Cottage Fairy Companion.
Industry Reviews

"Merrill, who has one million subscribers, believes that a cozy cottagecore vibe can be had anywhere, not just in the country. As she writes in her debut, The Cottage Fairy Companion, ... a beautiful life 'isn't dependent on where you live, but how.' She organizes the projects and reflections in the book by season, under chapter headings including "A Gentle Start," "Cultivating a Loving Space," and "Quiet Living in Winter." Her crafts-orange slice garlands, a terrarium, and more-are 'very easy,' [senior editor Natasha] Vera says, but 'they're no less enjoyable, even if you're an expert. The purpose isn't to keep busy or master it. It's to slow down and have a moment to connect to nature and yourself and be in the present moment.' "
-Publishers Weekly

"Merrill (Cottage Fairy YouTube channel) discusses what she has learned about her cottage and herself as the seasons change. She discusses her transition from city to country living, and while the book focuses on country life, solutions for connecting to the seasons and nature are offered for city dwellers as well. The book embraces the cottagecore trend, and while the word 'hygge' is never used, it is embodied in the text. Merrill's subscribers-more than a million-will embrace this work, and readers unfamiliar with her YouTube channel may also find it enjoyable. Readers will find recipes, crafts, guided activities, and a meditation for each season. The sections also include questions to guide readers on their path to mindfulness. VERDICT: This book presents an easy entry point for readers interested in exploring mindfulness and the cottagecore lifestyle. "
