Taking to her Tumblr (farewell, Twitter) account, Bynes shared a snapshot of her sparkly stud, donning suave shades, a blue collared shirt and a mile-wide smile.
The 26-year-old appears to be in good spirits following a turbulent string of incidents in 2012, which included two separate arrests for DUI and charges of hit-and run. If convicted, Bynes faces up to one year in jail.
Also on her wrap sheet: a bizarre appearance at a NYC bakery, where she locked herself in the stores’ bathroom for 30 minutes in September. Then in early November, she threatened to take legal action against In Touch after the publication claimed the actress was caught walking naked in a Manhattan salon.
“That’s not true, I’ll sue,” Bynes exclusively told Celebuzz via text message.
In the meantime, the former child star bid adieu to sunny Los Angeles and moved to New York City, where she has maintained a low profile.
