HAUS OF LALA
IS A COMMUNICATIONS AGENCY
SPECIALIZING IN PERSONAL BRANDING
Haus of Lala is a place of free thinkers, original ideas, and a belief in personal agency. We're deeply committed to bringing authentic voices to the global stage in a bold way and are deeply devoted to our clients' success.
Our specialty lays in the magic of discovering who you truly are. Well-curated stories have the power to unite, inspire, and create movements driven by cultures of like-minded individuals. It always starts with your story. We hone in on yours.
your identity is fluid.
SHOW ME WHO YOU ARE.
A LETTER FROM THE FOUNDER.
The most toxic of beliefs is that we can't be ourselves in this world and succeed (see TEDx here). That we can't say, dress, or create what we want. Or allow our hair to be natural, our skin to be brown, or our gender to be open.
As a result, we strive to be someone we're not, hoping that will bring us happiness or success. Our lives become sterile and empty, void of the magic we were born with, all because we've bought the lie that who we are isn't good enough.
I see the world, and the road to success, differently.
YOU WERE BORN WITH MESSAGES AND MAGIC INSIDE OF YOU.
Haus of Lala was built on the belief that who you are is your greatest body of work, one that should be celebrated. That truth, kindness, self-expression and beauty (as defined by you) are the true benchmarks for success.
With each client, I embark on an intimate journey to discover who they are, what makes them tick, and what they dream of at night. I want to see them as their lovers do: vulnerable, open, and truthful. I want to see the scars, the laughter, the mishaps, and the hunger, to weave it into a masterful story that is theirs and theirs alone.
Yes, you are that powerful.
Whether we're creating your next website, upcoming book, or fresh photography, it's time to make something different.
In a society where most people are terrified to be themselves, we assert that to do so is a revolutionary act in and of itself.
We offer a mix of consulting, strategy, and content creation. In addition, we offer a plethora of online classes to start-ups, creatives, and small-business owners passionate about bringing their work to the world.

“When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.”-Audre Lorde
Lalita Ballesteros (then known as Lauryn) began her career in NYC with NYT Times best-selling author and marketing expert Seth Godin. She worked directly alongside Seth for two years where she learned the intimate in's and out's of publishing, brand marketing, strategic partnerships, and the essence of generosity and art.
In six short months, they created six best-sellers and she single-handedly raised over a quarter-million dollars in sponsorships for their authors. Eager to apply her expertise to a larger audience, she branched off into consulting in 2012 where she worked 1:1 with start-up founders, best-selling authors, coaches, and entrepreneurs to bring their voice to the marketplace.
In 2015, Lalita founded Haus of Lala, an international agency dedicated to personal branding. Today, she acts as both Founder and Creative Director of Haus of Lala. She lives between Rome, NYC, and Toronto and incorporates her love for travel, high fashion, and unconventionalism in her work. Lalita has been seen on the stages of TEDx, twice, as well as Second City, Toronto. She's been featured in Fast Company, Huffington Post, Etsy, and a slew of others. Follow her personal work here.
