It seems that Mischa Barton‘s move from Los Angeles to New York City, where she’s filming her new CW series, is doing the troubled actress some good.

“I’ve been fully immersed in production on my upcoming show The Beautiful Life and I’ve been loving every minute of it,” she blogs on her Web site. “I have my dogs Charlie and Ziggy with me here so I’ve been hanging with them in my downtime, as well as hitting the gym as often as I can.”

Next up for Barton: She’s set to attend the series premiere party for The Beautiful Life, which begins Sept. 16, followed by co-hosting an event with Versace next month.

“Things are only going to get more hectic from this point on,” she writes.

Shortly before starting production on her new show, Barton, 23, suffered a breakdown in July and spent several days in a psychiatric ward after police were called to her home in Los Angeles
