Aside from the core burning items of which you're likely to replace spirit of the lizard elder if you have an incredibly long game. Here are some viable options that you could choose once obtaining:

    Core 3 burning items:
    -Spirit of the Elder Lizard
    -Sunfire Cape
    -Liandry's Torment
    -and you're choice of boots recommending Ninja Tabi or most likely Mercury Treads

The Burning items synergies well with your spells and make you scary to fight, an engagement or even being touched by you causes the enemy to suffer from several DOT effects, especially if you decide to ignite them and also acquire the red buff.

Each of Leona's spells don't do damage over time effects so each spell will trigger Lizard Elder and Liandry's. Other considerations for items could be:

Trinity Force: Tons of Damage, good utility, speed, spell blade effect and critical strike.

Rylai's Crystal Scepter: All your spells will now slow in addition to damage over time, makes you more tanky and will double the damage of Liandry's Torment.

Guardian Angel: The build has a considerable amount of health, this will make up for lacking resistance

Randuin's Omen: When you're team really wants you to be that much more tanky, good utility. Note: Activating randuins omen with your W spell will improve the slow duration considerably.

Masteries & Runes

Take your runes with a focus on AD for easier creeping at the start and duel potential other considerations to add to this of course would be:

    Armor- More duel potential
    Mana Regen- Need to be able to cast your spells
    Essential- Magic Resist per lvl blue's

Take your masteries how ever you like based on what you think would work
