Gypsy-Rose Blanchard is feeling confident and comfortable in her own skin a month after separating from her husband.

On May 1, PEOPLE caught up with Blanchard, 32, at Lifetime's Television Academy For Your Consideration event in Los Angeles.

"I'm just enjoying my time traveling," Blanchard, who resides in Louisiana, tells PEOPLE. "I don't get to travel very often because I am on parole, so I have to get permission from my [parole officer] to travel, so I'm just enjoying tonight."

With newly minted blonde hair and dressed in a red blazer, Blanchard said she has been having a great time experiencing new firsts in her life, such as going to the beach, shopping at Sephora and attending a New Orleans jazz festival in late April with her dad, stepmom and her "wonderful boyfriend" Ken Urker, who Blanchard was once engaged to.

In regards to the physical changes Blanchard has recently underwent — including rhinoplasty — she told PEOPLE they're all a part of her ongoing evolution.

"I had been wanting to go through a physical transformation to separate myself from the old Gypsy," Blanchard said, "I felt like, you know, going into prison, growing my hair out, that was me evolving into my own back then, but then coming out of prison was another evolving moment for me. So I think that right now I'm very comfortable in the way I look, and I'm proud and I have confidence now."
