I got the Adepta Sororitas Army Set a couple of months ago and I am only just getting around to putting the models together. I haven't planned too much in what to get next other than a box or two of Battle Sisters and Saint Celestine. What I am asking is what is the wises choice that I should go for after my initial choices?

Really not too sure where to post this so if this is the wrong area I do apologize and admins feel free to move to the appropriate place.

The pieces/units that you like.
Pieces/units that fit your play style.
Pieces/units that will serve you well vs those you play actually against.

Look through the stuff you have. Then look through the codex. Is there anything in the codex that fits those criteria that didn't come in the initial box? If so, buy that.

Pick what looks cool, first and foremost. Rules change. Models are eternal.

Generally, pick units that compliment what kind of army you want, regardless of how effective they are. Want lots of artillery and long ranged firepower? Exorcists and Retributors fit that theme. Fancy getting up close and into glorious melee? Zephyrim and Repentia, coupled with Arco-Flagellants and Penitent Engines. If you settle on a theme, you'll find things easier to sort out on what you want.

Other than that, look at iconic units for the faction - so things like Exorcists, Seraphim, Repentia, etc, and see if anything springs to mind.

Your plan of Celestine + 2 BSS gives you a battalion, if you stick to 10 models/ squad. Alternately, you could build squads of 5, to fill the troops component of a brigade. Or kit 10 models as doms to fill out an Outrider detachment.

You also have three elite choices [Repentia + Superior + Arcos], one heavy choice [Penitent Engine] and one Fast Attack [Seraphim]. This means you're closest to a vanguard for your second detachment- all it takes is an extra HQ, though that's a lean, fragile detachment.

The Exorcist is fantastic, and pretty much a must have, at some point. Two would be good. And additional box of PE gives you all kinds of options.

Beyond that, the reflection questions above are important; we'd need to know your Order to be able make additional suggestions. Knowing where you stand on the fluff vs. crunch scale is important too.

Exorcist. Seraphim, Zephyrim, Imagifiers. Maybe BR Repentia.

A lot of the units the Sister of Battle have access to are actually passably good. There's very few standouts or must-haves, the only ones I can think of off the top of my head are Exorcists, and that's only because they're literally the only unit in your army capable of doing what they do more than actually being good [they're fairly good too, but not ohmygod amazing].

You would also never be remiss with more battle sisters, because post codex Sisters are very much viable as a big horde of Power Armor, and are actually one of the more efficient counter-marines out there when doing so from my experience.

Guardsmen, hear me! Cadia may lie in ruin, but her proud people do not! For each brother and sister who gave their lives to Him as martyrs, we will reap a vengeance fiftyfold! Cadia may be no more, but will never be forgotten; our foes shall tremble in fear at the name, for their doom shall come from the barrels of Cadian guns, fired by Cadian hands! Forward, for vengeance and retribution, in His name and the names of our fallen comrades!

Also, you can play them as Celestians, who are downright amazing for their price (+1 point for +1a for all models, ws3+, rerolls for all to-hit rolls when near a canoness, bodyguard).

The people in the past who convinced themselves to do unspeakable things were no less human than you or I. They made their decisions; the only thing that prevents history from repeating itself is making different ones.
