Amanda Bynes made an official return to social media on Wednesday, sharing a photo from a recent night out with friend and makeup artist, Troy Jensen.

Bynes wished her followers a “happy holidays!” on her official Twitter account and shared a photo of herself smiling with Jensen.

In the image, the star, 29, wore a black lace dress with a nude underlay and a black leather jacket. Her long blond hair was worn down as she embraced Jensen, who she dubbed her “bestie.”

Jensen had previously shared the photo on his own Instagram account last weekend.

The actress, who was once active on Twitter, hadn’t shared anything through the site since August, when she posted an image of herself with designer Michael Costello. (However, there have been rumors floating around for some time that she tweets under a “secret” account, but she has never confirmed that these reports are true.)

In fact, Bynes rarely makes public appearances following a tumultuous few years. She was last seen out in Los Angeles at popular restaurant Craig’s at the start of this month.

In late 2014 the star was treated in a psychiatric facility following a DUI arrest, a shoplifting incident and headline-making posts on her Twitter account.

While she has remained under the temporary conservatorship of her parents since 2013, Bynes is “doing great,” her parents’ lawyer Tamar Arminak confirmed to PEOPLE in October.

Bynes is currently studying at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising at in Los Angeles, and is taking classes in the hope of obtaining her degree.

Arminak said at the time, “We are all so proud of her, and can’t wait to see her amazing designs on the runway someday.”
