here is a quick simple diagram. you'll need 14-3 from the switch to the light to the receptacle, if you have any more questions let me know

Just make sure you break the tab on the hot side of the receptacle.

you'll need to use 14-3 (12-3 if its a 20A circuit) from the recep. to the switch, White must be neutral, your black and red are hots, one will connect to the supply, one will be your switch leg color does not matter on this... then to the light you will us 14-2, white is neutral, black will connect to the switched wirenut
