You may have a breaker tripped or a blown fuse.

Which room do the light and receptales are not working if this is in bathroom it will have GFCI receptale you should able find it and reset it but if other rooms it will varies depending on the age and how recent it was rewired in the house { the codes will change over the years so one of us will know the answer }

But try to reset the breaker first just slide to off postion but little more than you normally do and slide it back on if still not power back on yet then you may have loose connection either at the recepalte or at the switch boxes.

The most common curpit is backstabbed recepatales that where you will find loose connection second most common cupit is loose wirenuts.

If feel not too confortable with this you can get a hold someone whom know the electrical system { I rather have a electrician deal with it }
