On Wednesday, five months later, the 30-year-old resurfaced in El Lay having lunch with a friend!
Not only was she wearing a navy coat and grey jeans, she was sporting a shorter, brunette hairdo!
Last time we heard from her, Miz Bynes was studying fashion design at FIDM which explains why she has shied away from the public eye and social media.
Looking good, girl!

It's been SO long since we've last heard from Amanda Bynes!
The former child star made a healthy-looking appearance out in West Hollywood last month, but on Wednesday, she actually shared an update with her fans.
Taking to Twitter, the 30-year-old revealed how life is going since enrolling in FIDM, the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, in Los Angeles nearly a year ago.
As a refresher, Amanda initially started up classes in 2014, but was kicked out ahead of her DUI arrest for alleged strange behavior, among other things.

Amanda Bynes has the right idea!
Instead of ringing in her milestone 30th birthday at a club, the aspiring fashion designer opted for a simple affair at Six Flags in California this past Sunday. Not only did the starlet act casual around park, but she also was generous enough to share her b-day cake with fans!

According to onlookers, Bynes looked like she was having a blast as she played games and rode rides with a group of friends. The sighting confirms previous reports that the actress is doing much better since her public meltdown in 2013.
Luckily for some fans, they were able to catch glimpses of and even interact with the reformed blonde. Check out some of the excited tweets (below)!
How could no one Ask Ashley!?
Earlier this week, Nickelodeon dropped a teaser for an upcoming All That reunion, which will feature some of the former cast reminiscing about the hit ‘90s sketch comedy show!
We were SO excited to see alums Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell, Danny Tamberelli, Lori Beth Denberg and Josh Server reunite in the trailer — but not so excited over the absence of Amanda Bynes.
Some fans assumed the former Nick star turned down the gig because she isn't acting at the moment, but apparently Bynes wasn't even invited to be a part of it!

On Sunday, Amanda stepped out in Venice, California and we couldn't help but notice that the actress looked fabulous! Not only did the blonde look fresh-faced, but she also appeared relaxed and zen on her stroll throughout the eclectic neighborhood.

Clutching a Starbucks (it's the ultimate accessory, after all) and wearing her signature sunglasses, Bynes looked reminiscent of the person we first came to love all those years ago! It's obvious the comedienne is doing MUCH better and is starting 2016 off right!
Perhaps the beauty's work at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising is what's doing her good… maybe Amanda just needed a new sense of direction!
So, do YOU think A.B. is on the path to healthy?
