Amanda Bynes greeted her followers on Twitter on Dec. 7 by posting a surprise tweet, expressing her love for the women's clothing shop, Boutique Jules. Bynes tweeted "I'm Loving Boutique Jules!" She also shared a photo of herself, taken inside the clothing store's dressing room. The tweet effectively ended her 26 day silence. The troubled actress has been absent from Twitter for almost a month.

E! News Online has reported that the 28-year old actress is noticeably slimmer in the photo shared on Twitter. She is seen wearing a skirt, with matching top that shows off her slim midriff and belly-button piercing. Her last activity on the popular social media platform, prior to this report, was on Tuesday, Nov. 11. After posting "I'm so rude," she seemed to have taken a vow of silence.

I'm so rude

A Boutique Jules employee has confirmed that Bynes visited their store on Saturday Dec. 6. The employee said that the actress was very polite and described her as "a lovely girl," E! Online reports.

According to Hollywood Take, ever since TMZ posted a recorded audio clip of hers, the former Nickelodeon star has been avoiding the media. In the clip, Bynes was talking about her disturbing fantasies -- murdering her father and mother.

"If your father was my father...then you'd understand why you want to slit his wrists," she can be heard saying in the audio clip, adding, "nothing would give me greater pleasure than slitting his throat." She is also heard saying, "I threaten to kill her and I threaten to slit her wrist and I threaten to burn down her house."

"I'm gonna continue telling you guys that I'm going to murder my family. They're in control of my money and that's why I don't have much money right now," Bynes added.

According to TMZ, Bynes hit the headlines last month when she was photographed asleep in a sofa at a mall in Los Angeles. The tabloid claimed that Bynes crashed at the shopping wall after wandering around, without a place to live. She was getting $50 to $100 a day, which is not sufficient for the 28-year old to secure her own living space. The actress has not yet updated her Twitter feed since her last tweet posted on Sunday.
