A little over a year ago, Kobe Bryant and Gianna Bryant tragically passed away, alongside seven others in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.

Since the January 26, tragedy, Vanessa Bryant has filed a lawsuit against LA County sheriff's deputies over alleged gossip and redistributed pictures of the crash, even taking to Instagram to share documentation about the situation.


Bryant also continued Kobe's philanthropic work, as well as other entertainment endeavors he had in the works. Now, Vanessa Bryant and her eldest daughter, Natalia Bryant, are honoring the NBA legend and daughter Gianna Bryant in a heartfelt way.

On Tuesday night, Vanessa and Natalia Bryant got an in-house tattoo from a talented artist, Nikko Hurtado, who gave them some heartwarming new pieces of ink to pay homage to Kobe and GiGi.

With a soft chuckle, and five minutes later, Vanessa proudly showed off her new "Mambacita" tattoo on her forearm in tribute to her 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, who coined the nickname after her father. Gianna was an incredible basketball protégée following in her father's footsteps.

Her eldest daughter Natalia received a couple of tattoos throughout the night, including "Mamba Sheath" on her wrist and "Muse" on her finger, which is also the title of Kobe's documentary. Vanessa highlighted the tattoo session in a string of videos on her social media.

It's delightful to see smiles on their faces despite the tragedy they endured. The drive to keep on pushing will forever inspire and be a testament to their strength.

Starting a business may have historically been perceived as a man’s game, but this couldn’t be further from reality. Research shows women are actually more likely than men to actively choose to start their own business – often motivated by the desire to be their own boss or to have a better work-life balance and spend more time with their family.

How am I doing as a parent?

Evaluating yourself is hard. It's even harder when attempting to assess your parenting because there's no set guide and nothing to count, measure, or quantify.

How am I doing as a parent?

Some time ago, I met my lovely friend for a drink, straight off the train from London. She told me about a very intense performance review she had at work recently, which, although scary, was incredibly useful; it gave her a general sense of how she was doing and areas to work on.

And it struck me we don't get this feedback as parents. Am I doing a good job? I have no idea.
