Kim Kardashian West didn't just show up in New Orleans on Tuesday to celebrate the 21st birthday of one of her most devoted fans; the reality star came bearing a gift, too.
Kardashian super-fan Myleeza Mingo spent Tuesday bonding with Kardashian, cherishing her birthday gift of sneakers, and documenting many of their shared experiences on social media — where her @MyleezaKardash handle has more than 18,000 Twitter followers and over 13,000 Instagram followers.
On Wednesday, Mingo posted a Facebook photo of herself with Kardashian and reflected on the day's whirlwind events. "Everyone just look at my smile," wrote Mingo, a resident of Bogalusa, Louisiana. "No comment, man, woman, child, shoot not even an animal will EVER ruin this for me. Yesterday was the best day of my life."
On July 1, Mingo revealed on Facebook that Kardashian would be "flying to New Orleans just to have dinner with me for my 21st Birthday!"
In the hours leading up to Mingo's meeting with her "most favorite person in the WORLD," Mingo posted an Instagram video of herself rapping along to a song by Kardashian's husband, Kanye West.
About four hours later, Mingo posted another video of herself, this time beside Kardashian, while showing off a new pair of sneakers.
"Kim just bought me these for my 21st birthday," Mingo says in that video, while Kardashian smiles and laughs. "Can you believe this?"
Kardashian also posted a photo from their hangout for the star's nearly 42 million Instagram followers.
"Happy Birthday @MyleezaKardash," reads the caption for Kardashian's pic. "I'm so thankful to spend your 21st birthday with you here in New Orleans! You have always been so real & supportive! Your tweets light up my day!!! Love you forever doll!"
Kardashian heaped additional praise upon Mingo via Twitter.
Mingo tweeted updates throughout the day, reporting that "Everything was filmed" by the "Keeping up with the Kardashians" crew; reveling in a birthday serenade by Kardashian's daughter, North; and rejoicing over Kardashian's openness.
Later, Mingo looked back on her big day by paraphrasing Kanye West's famous Video Music Awards interjection.
Mingo's final Tuesday Instagram post showed those sneakers in a bed, presumably Mingo's.
"Sweet dreams," she wrote.
