If you have any gfcis in your bathroom check them. This could be the problem ,because they might be wired in incorrectly therefore when they trip they not only cut power to themselves they also cut power to what ever else is down stream from them.

Also it is against code to have your bathroom and bed room on the same circuit.
I hope this helps
good luck and post back

If you don't have a tripped GFCI receptacle, the problem usually caused by a loose or broken wire at either the last-working or first non-working receptacle on the circuit. High-current loads like hair dryers and vacuum cleaners can cause weak connections to burn off. Check wirenuts for tight connections and move any backstabbed wires at receptacles to the adjacent screw terminals for better connections.
