    becoming bigger me.

    Do you like shopping?→ Yes. I love shopping. I usually buy cosmetics for myself. And I like finding out about new products on the market. Every time I buy a new product, I feel like I'm renewing myself, I mean, with a new item or possession, I seem to be broadening or expanding myself, I seem to be becoming bigger me.

    Does the underlined make sense?

    No. Remember to put a space after the punctuation mark that ends every sentence.

    Re: becoming bigger me.

    Is the underlined too vague to understand?

    Re: becoming bigger me.

    No. In fact it's pretty detailed. The last bit, becoming bigger me, doesn't make sense.

    Re: becoming bigger me.

    ... becoming a bigger me​ would work.

    Re: becoming bigger me.

    The underlined is a run-on sentence. You need to break it up.
