Hello I'm Kate Belle

I’m a lover: of words, people, life and coffee (especially coffee). I’m a rule bender, boundary challenger and mischief maker.

My kitchen is my favourite dance floor.

I should just take Jefferies misogynist jokes on the chin – like a nice submissive Eve. But fuck you, Jim Jefferies and MICF. I’m not Eve, and you just started a fight you won’t win. ...more
Welcome back to the boudoir. The sultry atmosphere is set for a cosy pillow chat with one of my favourite people and authors who has just released a new book and has a fab freebie on offer. Snuggle up because today we are in bed with Eden Summers, author of A Shot of Sin. ...more
In spite of my recent discovery that social media is fairly pointless, I joined Instagram this week. ...whyilovemelbourne...(in case you’d like to join me.) Am I wasting my time? Life is busy enough, without having to post about it all the time. How do you feel about social media? ...more
