My little blog has gone through some big changes over the past week and I wanted to share them with you guys.  First, we’ve added an email newsletter option.   If you enjoy my posts but do not want to follow via BlogLovin’, book marking, or RSS, have no fear!   Please sign up and I will email you when new posts come out.  Please also remember that you can also receive all the same info from my RSS feed that is on top (I love RSS and use Google Reader to monitor all my favorite blogs).

If you still cannot get enough Leopard and Lillies, feel free to follow via Pinterest (I’m obsessed and spend a ton of time on it), Twitter, and Instagram (my second obsession behind Pinterest).

Lastly, I just want to thank everyone for stopping by and commenting!  I read every single one of your comments and make sure to check out everyone’s blog.   I have been overwhelmed by the support for my blog and cannot believe it has grown so quickly since its start back in June. I can’t wait to see what the next few months have in store for Leopard and Lillies.

Much love from the Sandbox,

    Hello? Picture number 5 simply MUST be published in a magazine. Love it!

    I had a feeling you were based somewhere magical – I didn’t know it was Dubai :)

    I am sooo happy your blog has grown so quickly – but to be honest, I am not surprised: your style is insanely chic and the images are so bright and colourful! Well done!

        It’s the Attina necklace by Amrita Singh. There’s a waitlist on Gilt ($49.99 I think).

        New to your blog Amy, and love it! We have friends in Dubai and hope to visit before too long.
