Juanita Shikira


And yes, Shikira is actually my middle name!

I’m London-based, born and raised and I probably have a London accent whatever that sounds like.

I’ve never been one for ‘about me’ pages but it’s only right that you get to know the person behind the blog!

After completing my degree in Creative Writing and Journalism, I was desperate to get some experience in the field that I had studied, and I eventually started this blog in spring 2015. My only regret is that I didn’t start earlier!


When I first started this blog as LDNGIRL, the aim was to create a place that is all things London, however after a short while I realised I wanted it to reflect all things that I love and enjoy; from London and beauty bits to food and some fashion.

In reality, my blog is a reflection of myself and personality, and it was for this reason I rebranded to make my blog self-titled - juanitashikira.com. Oh and juanitashikira is my handle on social media, so it all makes complete sense if you think about it!
